(22nd March. 11:30am. Be ready to leave an hour before!)
Those were the only details I told my mum.
I decided to play mother's day a little differently this year. Whilst traditionally, all daughters and sons buy their mum's flowers and boxes of chocolates which last five minutes; I wanted my gift to be a little different.
My mum never really has the time to sit down and think, let alone adventure around in the city we happen to live in. So, I took to Groupon and found a good enough deal for brunch and cocktails for two in a modern and airy little pub called St Barts Brewery; a two minute walk away from Barbican tube station.
Oh, and it was a surprise. Right up until I opened the door to the pub itself...
The Groupon booking itself was pretty straight forward and offered us 4 different choices on the menu for brunch. Whilst I guessed my mum would pick the salmon choice, we both ended up ordering a fry up brunch. I couldn't quite face the fear of demolishing black pudding so let the old girl have it on her plate instead.
Together with the food, we had champagne and OJ cocktails which were simply DELICIOUS and most definitely the naughtiest beverage for before noon!
We then finished up with our bellies full of food and drink and had a little mooch around the area. We came across St Bartholomew's Church which was stunning and found a little back alley in which my mum shot my outfit photos for me.
(Ironically, my last post)
Whilst thinking of something for us to do in the afternoon, it suddenly hit me like a brick to the face. Not that I know what that feels like... but figure of speech and all that...
My mum absolutely loves anything and everything to do with history and dinosaurs. So, what better place to take her than the Natural History Museum?! Located just outside of South Kensington tube station, the building itself is stunning to look at and truly something special.
Being a Sunday, it was rammed full of annoying little children and tourists which is the main reason I didn't get too many photos. However, I did film a mini (and I mean mini) vlog so you can come along with us for the day and see what we got up to! :)
