4am and the alarm clock went off, for some stupid reason we decided to get down there really early so we had the full weekend to enjoy the sights....zzzzzzzzz
So we arrived in the pretty city, first stop: STARBUCKS! Serious amount of coffee was need that's for sure! We then went off to meet up with some of our friends that had arrived and to drop off our bags etc until we could check in, then back into market square to meet the rest of the gang. By this time it was actually time to check in woooohoooo. So we get to the Ice apartments where we were staying and one of our rooms wasn't ready, so we got an upgrade to the PENTHOUSE! Needless to say we all went loopy from the excitment, jumped around a bit (a lot) then unpacked!
Our view <3 Bolero square:
Nothing much was done on the Friday because we were all tired, so we popped out had a bit of a wander, bought wine and just basically chilled. I don't think any of us got any sleep to be honest, I swear there was a herd of elephants staying in the same apartments, banging around till 4am!!
Saturday 21st April, Show day :D
Once again the first thing on the agenda was starbucks of course, followed by a little bit of shopping then it was time to go see Dancing on Ice. Primark of course (haul blog coming up) and we found a quirky little sweet shop that sold all old fashioned sweets and american sweets! I was in my glory!!
Lucky charms bar anyone :P
For anyone who hasn't seen the show, you really need to it's SO good!! And anyone who has, how good is it?! We all know I'm a HUGE fan of Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, but even if I wasn't I'd still say they were absolutely breathtaking! They present the whole show (very well may I add) and perform the opening routine, 2 of their own and the finale. It's such a great family show that everyone would love, even if you aren't into ice skating.
The celebs involved are:
Also big credit has to go to the pro skaters too, they are amazing at what they do!
After the show it was time to head back, chill for 5minutes then head to Nando's for food :D Then back for wine times. T o be honest not a lot was done in Nottingham but it was just nice to get away and chill.
Some pictures from Notts:
Definitely a city that I'll always go back too time an time again <3
