So the plan for today was to go out for breakfast with my cousin before work. We planned it yesterday and were looking forward to getting a fat fat breakfast.
So we headed out early in the morning (for once) & were supposed to go to Central Perk for breakfast. You know, the cafe from Friends? Well it’s opened up in Primark in Manchester. I know, so exciting! But somehow we actually ended up going to Chai Latte instead. I’m going to have a post up about Chai Latte soon In Shaa Allah. But yeah Chai Latte is apparently the only place in Manchester that serves a Halal Full English breakfast.
Once we were done with breakfast we still decided to head over to Central Perk as I really, really wanted to go and check it out. I was on a bit of a time limit as I actually had to get to work in a couple of hours. But nonetheless, we headed over to Central Perk and it was so gooooood. I’d seen pictures all over Instagram of the cafe and of the infamous brown sofa, too. And as soon as I found out it had opened up in Manchester I literally knew I had to go and see this place myself. It’s only been open since the 12th of June but I can already see it doing well. Smart move, Primark.
So I got my picture on the brown sofa (and didn’t realise I’d actually taken someone’s spot…) and had a lil look inside the cafe, too. We didn’t actually manage to get anything from the cafe as we were stuffed from breakfast and were also on a time limit remember. But it was nice to go and have a look and hopefully I’ll go again soon, properly.
So yeah, we’d had a nice breakfast, had gone and checked out the Friends cafe & then also went and bought some necessities whilst we were in town. It was then time to go to work so we had a lil road trip before my cousin dropped me off at work. Work was alright alhamdulillah & once I was done, I headed home. It had been a pretty good day alhamdulillah. But it was at this point I realised I didn’t have my cardholder on me…
Long story short: I’ve lost my cardholder… I’ve looked almost everywhere for it and I still haven’t managed to find it yet. But In Shaa Allah it will turn up soon. In Shaa Allah.
So that’s the story of today & of my good day gone bad. Although I don’t have my cardholder, as I’m writing this I’m still having ice cream so I can’t complain really. (I just really hope that I’ll find it soon In Shaa Allah!). But yeah, that was my day.
Thank you for reading! I was so excited about the Friends cafe opening up in Manchester – like, Manchester of all places? I think that’s amazing. And *spoiler alert for a potential future post* I have to say Chai Latte was pretty good too. But enough about me! What did you get up to today?
