Long weekend

I had a three day weekend thanks to the May bank holiday and it was a busy one.

On Saturday I went with my family to Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands. The showroom has a mix of classic and new cars and there’s a track and skid pad outside for driving experiences. Despite it being so close to where I live I hadn’t been before so we wandered around and had some drinks (my can of coke cost me £1.80!!).




I wouldn’t say no to the above one! And it’s a snip at £50k 🙂

After that we went to Gourmet Burger Kitchen, their burgers are so yummy. I had a cheeseburger cooked just how I like it, chips and a glass of rose.

I can’t eat burger and chips without lots of mayo – naughty but nice 🙂

On Sunday, I went for lunch with some friends I’ve known since our school days and we had a good catch up! I was full after my roast dinner and chocolate pudding!

Yesterday, I went shopping with my mum but I couldn’t find any clothes, all the shops have is beach stuff and as I’m not going to the beach that’s no good for me 😦 I did get a couple of bits for my room though …



The only downside is I’m exhausted! I can never sleep in late now, I long for my Uni days when I didn’t get up until 10am, now I’m awake when my alarm goes off in the week for work and rarely sleep past 7am, which sucks if I have a late night. Luckily, I took today off work and I’m going to chill out at home!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Thanks….my weekend was great…I didn’t go out much and it was hot…but I may have met someone special…


      1. Forgive me…it kind of happened all of a sudden. Will tell you as soon as something wonderful happens.


  2. I’ve been to Mercedes World myself and loved the old cars and the aeroplanes from WW2. The burger brings back recent and pleasant memories. Made my moth water thinking of it

  3. Sounds like a great weekend Vixter! Very busy and fun. I love the pics you got for your room too. Sorry you’re tired, but at least it’s a short week, right? 🙂

  4. I was gonna say “Damn girl, you’re rolling in a Benz?? BALLER!” But it’s nice to look as well (I hear the upkeep of them is astronomically high)

    Love the signs you got!!

  5. I love that you had a good long weekend. You deserve it Love. I also love your positive artwork. It really can make a difference in your day. My favorite Mercedes was the retro little one, it looked like a little top hat. One of these days you’re going to have to do a visit to LA, I’m taking you to eat everywhere and shop at some fantastic places and whatever else your little fabulous heart desires.

  6. That rainbows/stars poster is fabulous! It’s also a good reminder that me and Ba.D. ought start looking at framing and hanging any of the many posters that’ve been sitting in closets the last two years . . . beautiful things are difficult to appreciate when locked in a dark closet!

  7. I didn’t sleep much either… my friend kept me up in local bars till 4 a.m. and then we had to get up early to do sightseeings 😀
    I love the posters, especially the rainbow and stars one. Very optimistic!

  8. Sounds like a pleasant weekend indeed Vix! I love mayo with my burger and chips too 😉 Those pieces you got for your room are awesome. This weekend will be a long one at NZ, the Queen’s birthday, yayyy!! But I figure by Queen, that would be the Queen of England. Do you have another long weekend coming up too?

  9. Those cars are gorgeous. Your burger & fries look delicious! What inspiring words for your room. I’d say you had an excellent weekend!
