A weekend Treat

It's not very often that we will go out for a meal. We have lots of takeaways as treats, but very rarely do we get dressed up and go out for dinner.

This weekend, I asked the kids if they would like to go out for dinner as a treat, they jumped at the chance.



Before this pic was taken, Erin was quite upset as she had left her bag in the taxi, a quick call to the taxi company and the bag was delivered back safely to her.



My heart melts when these 2 have cuddles. They don't admit it too often but they love each other so much.

I ordered Chicken New Yorker, Erin ordered Ham, Egg and Chips and Damian ordered a very boring plain burger and chips.



I decided to treat us to a pudding that we could share, we all picked this pudding, it was sooooo delicious.


But even between the 3 of us we couldn't finish it.


Before we left, Damian and I thought it was the perfect time for an impromptu 'selfie'.


We left the pub feeling very stuffed and unable to think about food without feeling sick. It was definitely a great day and I didn't spend more than £30. You don't have to spend a fortune to have quality time with children. I think we could have just ordered pudding and it would have been enough.


Linking up with mummy daddy and me

    1. It certainly is, the weather was awful but just being out and enjoying dinner together made us forget about all the rain x

    1. I bought those necklaces as a set, they also came with 3 bracelets and 3 rings, bought from Claire's for about £5. I treated her to them as she had been feeling poorly and I knew they would cheer her up x

    1. They get so excited when we plan to do things away from the house, during the Winter months we don't get out much due to the weather so I knew a meal out would be perfect for us x

    1. I use the taxi company a lot and they always have fantastic customer service, but I know it would have been easier for them to say it wasn't there rather than drive back to us to drop it off.

      Thank you for hosting x

  7. Oh that dessert looks heavenly!! We went out for dinner this week for the first time in ages too. (Mainly because I'm traumatised by two 2 year olds in a restaurant!) but it was great. I do love making a food memory ;) #magicmoments
