A Magic Monday at The Cosy Club

You will all know if you've followed me for the past year that Monday's are my favourite. Since dropping my hours it has literally revolutionised my work/life balance and I'm so thankful I made that choice. My husband and I dubbed it a Magic Monday as both children are at school/nursery and we get to be us for a few hours.

On Monday, we decided to head to Norwich for a mooch around the shops and basically coffee shop hop! It's something we used to do all the time when we were first dating - finding random spots to people watch, chat, daydream and of course, drink coffee (although back then it was pots of tea, I think becoming parents hardened us!).

Our first stop was Norwich Cathedral, which is truly stunning. I'm not religious, but I certainly appreciate religious places as they always bring me a sense of calm. Norwich Cathedral is beautifully kept, they had the perfect blend of old and new, where they work in harmony to bring out each other's best bits - you will know what I mean if you've ever visited.

We had a little walk around before heading to the cafe there - an old favourite of ours. We started our day with a little coffee and a trip down memory lane.

After this, we continued to head into town when we saw something I had been obsessing over on Instagram - The Cosy Club! We were both hungry and decided to stop and have an early lunch.  Situated on London Road - the old Natwest Bank, the Cosy Club is quite blended in and looks nothing out of the ordinary - but when you step in its actually quite breathtaking. The quirky interior is balanced with 30's architecture and it makes for the perfect setting - I can imagine it to be quite wonderful at night (sipping on a huge range of their cocktails! - I can see a date night approaching soon!). We chose to go for their version of Tapas so we could get a feel for their menu and it certainly didn't disappoint. We were both pleasantly pleased and enjoyed every single mouthful!

The service was great and there was a really nice atmosphere - very relaxed - although not as cosy as the name entails - the main dining area is bright and open with so many quirky corners. I found my eyes wandering around the incredible decor. A really lovely feature is that some on the elements of the old bank still remain - like the vault!

The rest of the afternoon was spent mooching around the shops. Jamie getting excited when he finally found a watch  (he’s so fussy) and I got treated to some perfume too! However, it wasn’t long before we had to put our parent hats back on ready for the school run.

I don’t think I will ever get tiered of a magic Monday’s - I definitely think everyone should have their own day just for them - completely life changing!
