Family

Today my I had the pleasure of Grandparents visiting me at Uni. I haven't seen them since moving in this year so it was a treat to have my family come and see the house. I think I have been missing a little bit of home comfort and they certainly have filled this gap up for now.
We ventured into Liverpool for the day, where we had lunch and shopped for Christmas presents and winter essentials (after leaving my gloves on the train!). It's so lovely to show people why I love this city so much, and it's so easy to do so when it's beautifully decorated for Christmas time. The smell of fresh donuts and fudge, hot mulled wine flowing and Christmas carols being played by musicians - what could be better?
I also showed them around the docks, which is something they have wanted to do for a long time but we have never really had the chance to do so. We walked around in the crisp winter air before enjoying a warm drink in Costa. It sounds daft but I have never had a seasonal drink from a coffee shop but today broke that barrier. For me - a heavenly gingerbread latte, my Grandma had a salted caramel latte and my Grandad enjoyed a toffee nut caffe caramella. This is something in which I am sure, will be repeated!
A great way to spend a Sunday :)

This sounds like the most wonderful Sunday :) how lovely for you to be able to show your grandparents around your house and Liverpool. I've not been over to Liverpool for so long, I must go over and see the Christmas lights :) gingerbread latte is delicious! xxx
