This week I met with my cousin in St Albans for a rendevouz at the locals favourite lunch venue; Bakehouse. It was so great to see her after all these years, we agreed on something crazy like 8 years to have passed without seeing each other! But with uni/work/relationships and not living that close it just happens I suppose. Saying that, nothings changed. She's just as I remember her. Utterly gorgeous, inside and out. Growing up she was my big cousin who I went all dreamy whenever she came to visit! She was uber cool, leggy with long blonde hair and was the kind of teenager I wanted to be when I grew up! We met, we chatted, planned future meet ups and I realised I was right to be all starry eyed all those years ago because she is a lovely sweet hearted girl who I am lucky to have back in my life.

So moving on. Bakehouse, tucked away a little, not far from the Cathedral is a down to earth cafe with homely bakes, gourmet type salads and really friendly staff. That to me is a major plus point visiting cafes or anywhere to be honest, as it does add that little touch to your day when you've had some good banter/chatter with a stranger. Don't you think? 

 There were lots of yummy treats to chose from and it was then I regretted arriving early and conveniently making it in time for the early bird specials!

I would recommend this place for a lunch date before going to a sunbathe in the cathedral gardens. That's what I did :) St Albans is a lovely historical town and is one of those places you say to yourself - I want to live here! I do say that a lot so maybe don't take my word for it! Maybe you should go and see for yourself!

Have a good a weekend. Be safe, laugh lots, and tell someone special to you that you love and appreciate them for all that they are and all that they do for you.
