"I don't mind sightseeing but I'd be going for the wine and craic"

Things have been exciting over here recently! Over the weekend, my Mum, sister and I packed up our things, hopped on an early train {armed with our breakfast} and headed over to Glasgow for a night. Having never really explored the city, I was quite excited and rightly so. We had a bloody marvellous time.

We spent the whole day shopping, only pausing for afternoon tea and fizz at the Pig and Butterfly tea rooms. The whole place was incredible - full of knick knacks and trinkets, so I of course was in heaven.

After, we headed back to the hotel with just enough time for a cup of tea and a change of clothes before heading back out again, this time for dinner at the Ubiquitous Chip.

The food was incredible - I had scallops followed by the lamb and I could happily have licked my plate and the end of the meal. The restaurant itself was gorgeous - a huge glass ceiling, fairy lights, wood cornicing on the mezzanine floor to name but a few details! Rolling back to the hotel after a few {ahem} glasses of wine, we curled up in our room - with two king size beds, perfect for a girlie night away - and slept like the dead til the next morning where we were all slightly frazzled, shall we say.

That aside, it was really the company that made it. I barely stopped laughing throughout the 24 hours we were there. It really was brilliant to spend some quality time with my Mum and Sister and I can't wait to do it again soon {HINT}. We always have such a lovely time together - we're so close and so alike in so many ways. It really was marvellous.
