Breakfast with Dad in Windsor – 20 June 2014


I am, it’s true, a bit of a foodie. Imagine my delight, then, when Mum presented me with a little envelope on completing my exams. Inside, a Groupon voucher for two, to have a full English breakfast at the Crooked House of Windsor. With the meal already paid for, Dad and I bought coffee and sat down with the morning papers while the world went by outside.

Booked for first-thing this morning, it meant that preparations for my birthday party on Sunday could be resumed this afternoon. Nonetheless, I was afforded a little time to spend in Windsor, although my mission to find a pair of shoes for Monday night’s prom ultimately proved futile. In spite of this, the couple of hours we spent were enjoyable, and there was just time to watch the daily Changing the Guard ceremony outside the Castle, before heading back to Maidenhead to continue my quest for a pair of clogs.
