My Week #7

Monday 5th May 2014 was our 7th wedding anniversary I can't believe how fast its gone! We had a lazy morning at home and then went in to Chester for a walk along the river, we took Issy to a play area in Handbridge then went to La Fattoria for dinner. Mr W bought me a lovely card ... can you spot the mistake?!

Mr W took the day off work on Tuesday and we went to Llanberis to take Issy on a real steam train. We got slightly lost on the way and ended up going via Betws Y Coed as Mr W thought he knew the way! The Llanberis Lake Railway is a lovely little steam train ride starting at Llanberis, the village at the foot of Snowdon, and running through the Padarn Heritage and Country Park, and alongside the full length of Lake Padarn. Isabelle really enjoyed herself, the train we were on was called Thomas Bach (meaning little Thomas) and he was also painted blue like his more famous bigger brother. There are really great views from the train of the Snowdonia mountains and the peak of Snowdon itself. We took a picnic for our lunch and on the way home we stopped in Conwy and had fish and chips on the front.
On Wednesday I went in to Chester with my friend Lisa in search of a birthday present for Mr W and had lunch in one of my favourite cafes Pret A Manger. I forgot to take Issy's reigns so she kept us both on our toes as she doesn't stay still for 2 minutes.
On Thursday Isabelle spent the morning in Playgroup whilst I went to do the weekly food shop and we spent the afternoon at home baking cakes. After Issy went to bed I started pampering myself ready for Chester Races.
On Friday we went to Chester Races for Mr W's birthday, I was the chauffeur for the day as i'm obviously unable to drink. Prior to the races we went to a new bar that has recently opened called The Botanist for Champagne breakfast then made our way to the races with a quick stop at our favourite haunt Bar Lounge. The forecast all week had predicted rain, high winds and thunder but luckily for us it turned out to be one of the nicest days of the week. It was a great day but unfortunately I had no winners, Mr W had a couple so it wasn't all bad! We then went for a meal at The Architect followed by drinks in a few bars, I was home by 8:30! 
Saturday was Mr W's 32nd birthday! We had a rare lie in and had breakfast then took delivery of the day bed we ordered last week and spent the morning putting that together (Mr W wasn't too impressed as he was feeling a little worse for wear!). Later that day we had a lovely birthday dinner at the in-laws. Issy had a great time at her Nana and Grandpa's, they took her to the cinema to see her favourite movie 'Frozen' in 3D.
Sunday Mr W was at the football, so I went to see my mum then met a friend for lunch.

and that was our week...
