Lunch at GRO Coffee in Irvine

Hello dear readers! How is your Saturday going? Our friends went back to Italy yesterday, we spent five lovely, busy days and we will miss them, but I am grateful that they came to visit us. I will have some great memories of these days and look forward to seeing them again. This morning was a bit sad to have breakfast without them, but I got distracted by doing chores, there were bedsheets and towels to wash and the house was quite messy because we were always out and about.

Today it’s another sunny, lovely day here in Scotland. We just came back home, I went to a couple charity shops, there were some great books (at 99p!) but I forced myself to wait before buying them, because I’ve got THREE books on my bedside table that I need to finish first. Anyway, today I’d like to share with you some photos from Thursday. We all went to Irvine for lunch and then we wanted to go to Ayr, but my friend’s boy wasn’t feeling too well so we just stayed in Irvine instead and went to the mall. My friend’s other child, a 12 year old girl, was way happier because we went to Primark, which in Italy has only three stores!

We had lunch in GRO coffee. I really love both GRO and the Ship Inn in Irvine harbour but we decided to go to GRO because my friend loves organic food and it has a garden, so that her boy could play outside. I love the Ship Inn during cold, rainy days because it’s so cosy and nice, with the fireplace and the wooden furniture.

Furry customers – one of the many things I love about GRO, that it’s dog friendly
Could we please take a moment to appreciate this cakes?

GRO is delightfully furnished, full of comfortable, homely sofas and armchairs. It feels like home, really. Plus you don’t have to cook and wash the dishes yourself…AH!

Lovely, modern but cozy interior deisgn

My boyfriend also bought a Game of Thrones throw and 3 Dragon eggs tealights. Yes, I know we have been marketing slaves, BUT the final season is here and I’m afraid they won’t be doing collections from the series anytime soon after the final season ends, so… I know the magnets are not really useful but I will be so happy to think about GOT everytime I open my fridge. HA! Marie Kondo says you need to own only things that bring you joy, right? Well, Game of Thrones brings me joy.

That’s all guys.

I hope you’ll have a lovely Saturday night,

Camilla x
