Afternoon tea at the Hilton and Dirty Martinis

So my bestest friend in the world recently turned 40 and had not long had a baby so she didn't want a mad weekend away much to all our disappointment, I was hoping for a weekend in Ibiza or even Marbella even if I would be in bed by 10pm. So with these plans aside I arranged a night day out in our hometown of Cardiff.  I booked Afternoon Tea at the a hilton for 25 of us with prosecco and then a booth at Dirty Martini.

We all took our children to football in the morning and then had the mad dash to get home to get all ready for our day out.  We all met at the local pub then took a train into town to get to the Hilton. The manager came to introduce himself which was lovely and then we were seated until our food arrived. We were topped up with endless amounts of prosecco which trust me is hard work in the afternoon.  There were other parties present to another 40th celebration and a 30th birthday also.  I was secretly giggling there was an elderly lady in one of the parties who's prosecco had gone right to her head and she was slumped in the chair I thought it's normally me who's like that.  Anyway we had a great afternoon and such a good laugh, going back and for the toilet was a nightmare it felt about three miles away from our room but never mind eating all those sandwiches and cake the walking is probably a good thing.





So we finished up here then walked through the shopping arcades to Dirty Martini, I haven't visited Dirty Martini before and I was impressed with how smart the staff were and how smart the place was, we arrived just in time for happy hour and we made way through the cocktail menu.  So our night just got better and better and the laughs louder and longer.  We caught the last train home and literally had the best day ever.
