Before being able to enjoy the weekend, I was working from home on Friday which can often be a long day. To keep up my energy, I had to make sure I drank enough fluids as well as walking occasionally. The latter wasn’t quite so successful due to my short legs but, thanks to Karen, I did pretty well on the fluids front.
Saturday bought a nice surprise as I went to the Sands Hotel and not just to visit. I got to stay there overnight as a treat and, even better, they had a special Monkey sized pillow for me. I also rather liked the decorative lamp.
One of the reasons for staying there was so that I could have nosy around and I particularly wanted to see the roof terrace. Well that was worth the trip, what a stunning view, even in the rain.
To make sure that I was able to have a decent dinner, I made sure I had a walk beforehand and went up the hill to Fort Terrace. I got a bit defensive at that point as lots of ships were out to sea so I was a bit worried they were trying to invade and just had to protect everyone with the cannon.
Dinner was at Mullins Brasserie which had an unexpected Caribbean theme but, gosh, it was delicious and what a lovely venue and great atmosphere. I had Mhai Mhai fish for the first time followed by one of the best ever cheesecakes, along with a little bit of prosecco.
After a restful night at the Sands, once the noise had died down, I was treated to a full English breakfast, vegetarian of course, with a wonderful view.
As the sun had come out, it seemed only right that I returned to the terrace. It looked stunning in the sunshine even though it was so windy that Karen had to hold onto me.
After I got home, I decided to go for a paddle on the beach which made me
So, I should probably tell you why all these nice things are happening – that’s because its Karen’s birthday today (Sunday) so she’s had some nice treats to mark the occasion.
Thanks to all those wonderful people who made her day special.
