Autumn really has arrived here in Cambridge. Suddenly the nights are longer, the days crisp, and the leaves turning to gold upon the trees that line the River Cam. But I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to the memory of summer just yet, so here is a little dose of sunshine from a couple of weeks back when the sun was blazing here in Cambridge.
It had been a particularly long week at work, and so an afternoon bike ride was in order (there are few stresses that a ride through the cobbled streets of Cambridge, golden in the evening sunset, cannot cure). Although I had planned to meet my friend S for dinner, somehow we ended up at Bennetts, the best ice cream parlour in Cambridge instead (where I was perfectly camouflaged against the ice cream pastels in this fairytale print dress). Although I don’t advocate the practice of forgoing proper food in favour of sugar as a general rule, sometimes there is something so fun about acting like a child and eating dessert for dinner, just because you can and it’s fun.
And that right there is my favourite thing about being a grown up: you can do what you like without having to answer to anyone. Now excuse me while I put on my pink Prada heels, crank up The Supremes and turn my housework into my own private dance party…
Eating cake for breakfast or buying really beautiful, impractical heels (just because you can); what are your favourite things about being a grown up?
Love, Miss B xx
