31/8/14 - 31/8/14
We had allocated today on the itinerary as being "Regret Day", but instead it turned out to be "Reminiscing in the Sunshine Day". We walked into the city for brunch, with Belinda helpfully beeping to alert us to safe pedestrian crossings.
Neville wanted to hang out with some of his kind, so we took him to Meanwood urban farm where we soaked up the vitamin D, admired the gardens and ooh-ed and aah-ed at the animals.
Next stop was the Chapel Allerton Arts Festival, for more dancing, drinking and eating with the Thornshire Crew. Great fun vibe about the place, with a blues band playing and deliciously tempting food smells wafting through the air. Sonny was tuckered out by the end, falling asleep in Natalie's arms. We could all relate to that feeling...
Dinner was a bad decision - Bella Italia was awful. From the rude wait staff aggressively telling Maya that pasta contains eggs (and then handing her a folder saying "find something you can eat"), to the microwaved food of substandard quality, it was all just nasty. Never again.
Afterwards, Steph and Maya returned to Travelodge to prepare for early morning onward travel, and the rest of us went to the cinema. Or at least, we tried to. It seemed the cinema had gone into hiding, but between the five of us we managed to track it down. Eventually.
The Inbetweeners was an excellent choice - so appropriate to watch a movie about English people on holidays in Australia! I particularly loved the drop bears reference... Tourists beware! After that we were all laughed out, so it was bed time again. Another successful day done and dusted!
