Back in September when we were on vacation I did this post I said I got a really good deal but couldn't tell you what it was.
Well it was a Coach Purse for dd birthday. She is mad about purses/handbags, and couldn't afford to buy a Coach brand one. I will say her reaction to opening the box and finding the purse was exactly as I imagined. She was thrilled, and we were thrilled that she was so happy. Here are some photos of the purse. It was probably last years stock, but I bought what I think is a classic style, that she will be able to use for years.
We went to the Elephant and Castle for lunch, it's a British style pub, which serves British food, and it was pretty good. Both kids had bangers and mash, me and dd boyfriend had roast beef and Yorkshires and dh had steak sandwich and chips.
We then walked to a Timothy's coffee shop for a coffee and we relaxed in the comfy chairs for ages, just catching up.
We took the subway both to and from the restaurant, and it was dh's first time on the subway. Its not something I would like to do everyday, but it makes a change and as dd says it's not like through the week, when you are all crammed together like sardines in a can.
We then went to Ikea to pick up a couple of things. All in all it was a great day. Dd birthday by the way is on Monday, however everyone is at work, so we celebrated it today.
