I mentioned in my last post that I had a family filled weekend, we stayed local, our first meeting point was one of my favourites The Graveney and Meadow in Tooting Broadway. We tumbled into this warm and welcoming eatery, glad to escape the cold and chatted over a drink and shared hugs and hellos. Once everyone had arrived we exchanged birthday presents, drank tea, coffee and a beer or two, catching up on the latest news makes you feel peckish, so we headed over the road to Tota, another favourite local spot. It’s had a revamp recently, creating a new bar area. We deliberated over the yummy menu, ate loads, drank cocktails and beers and chatted the evening away.

It was so much fun spending time with family, drinking cocktails and eating naughty puddings. I was so engaged in the celebrations that by the time I’d downed my third cocktail, I was eating pudding … time was flying by, I love days like that. However, I was having far too much fun gossiping with my sister and Momma, but still managed to insta-story of it all. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, maybe you could come take a peak, so you can catch up on snippets of what I get up, much of which doesn’t always end up on the blog , plus I’m heading to LFW later this week🤗 

Anyhow, back to what I had for lunch, I went for the mashed avocados on gluten free toast. I was so happy with this choice, it was full of texture, flavoursome and fresh. Having been virtuous with my main course, I was persuaded by the girls to nosh on a sumptuously naughty chocolate and leché pot of heaven – t was so good. Family fun, time to connect and share, bliss.
