A day trip to Rochester

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
