What a bunch of blogger babes! On Friday night I (Victoria) wrapped up warm and joined Sophie from Saints On A Plane, Hayley from Bonjour, Blogger!, Dulcie from La Dulcie Vita and Amie from Credit Crunch Chic (Tara from The Style Rawr and Lucy from The Parent Game not pictured) for a night of Ice and Pies! We looked like an off duty ice skating girl band who only eat pies. Incidentally, this is pretty much my dream come true.
Every festive season I excitedly exclaim how I’d love to have a whizz around the rink at At-Bristol, but I never seem to get around to it before it vanishes for another year. Instead, I just bore my friends with my story about how Christopher Dean once called me ‘a ray of sunshine’. Unfortunately, compliments from skating legends do not equal skating prowess, and I can just about shuffle around the outside of the rink without falling over. Luckily for me, the soundtrack was spot on, so I felt pretty great
creeping zooming along to Shake It Off.
For dinner, we popped along to St Nick’s night market to sample the new festive pies from Pieminister, which were pretty damn tasty. Myself and Hayley went for the Three Kings pie, which contains a mouthwatering combination of turkey, smoked bacon, parsnips and cranberries. It’s like Christmas in a pie. Merry Piemass indeed! It would definitely get more than 3.142 out of 5 from me…
