40th birthday

On my birthday my parents and I went to Glasgow to have lunch at the Willow Tea Rooms, because I love Charles Rennie Mackintosh's architecture and I'd never been to the Willow Tea Rooms before.


We all decided to have the "Scottish Rarebit" (toasted cheese) with bacon, and we had the Willow Tearoom's own green tea to drink. The main course was great, but the sweets were even better! Dad had an enormous meringue, Mum had a huge strawberry tart, and I had the warm chocolate brownie which may well be the best thing I have ever tasted, and I'll definitely be going back again specifically for the brownies!


After we'd eaten we were able to see inside a room where the original stained glass doors and some other pieces of furniture are kept, then we had a look at the shop downstairs.

We had a look at the shops on Sauchiehall Street and I bought myself a cuddly Moomin!

When we got home I opened all my lovely presents, which included a vintage enamelled silver pendant that I had chosen, some other vintage jewellery and a jewellery box to keep it all in! After that we had one of my favourite meals - a haggis supper!

Hadn't realised you had never been to the Willow tea rooms. They are owned by the sister of a friend of mine...

Must go sometime
