Before we moved to Whitstable, we used to live in Rochester. It is where we brought our first little house and where we lived with our son when he was a baby for a year or so until we moved on...and for some reason, we hadn't been back! So, as it was my birthday last Saturday (one more scary year closer to a BIG birthday!) we decided a little day trip there was in order.
It has probably one of the loveliest High Streets in the country, with a Cathedral and a Castle thrown into the mix! Plus gorgeous old shops like the wonky one above! It did bring back all sorts of memories of being a first time mum and walking up and down the high street with F in a pram!
I don't think this shop existed when we were there? And typical me, I can't remember the name of it - but it was amazing, with it's fantastic displays, I could have spent hours there. I would love those old trunks.
Amazing brooches and jewellery on a black velvet dress - so beautifully displayed!
I didn't take as many pictures as I should have, but it was a lovely day - freezing cold, but sunny too. And I could browse all I liked as well, without anyone moaning (which they normally do) as it was my birthday.
Then home again to a lovely meal cooked by my hubby and birthday cake courtesy of my lovely best pal - thank you Vic, it was delicious
