Yeah, baby, check out these cosy bad boys. It’s getting to that time of the year! The heating hasn’t come on quite yet, but we’re starting to wrap up warmer in the house as the final warm days of summer pass us by…
Popcorn and a movie on a Wednesday! And a cheeky glass of rosé from me and mum’s vineyard trip a couple weeks ago. Today was hugely productive all-around. So I’m feeling pretty good but very tired…
After two weeks of freedom on four wheels, it was time to return my lovely hire car. I’m sad as we’ve been on such adventures together, I’m somehow already attached. It did mean though I got to go on a lovely midday walk in the sunshine though!
And thus also forgetting to take a photo during the day time… So instead here’s a last minute photo of me in bed with my Kindle. Today was fine, the highlight was having a laugh with Nic in Sainsbury’s and winning £5 on a scratch card we got to get change for the trolley!
We decided to keep making the most of the hire car and head back out into the countryside today! It was another glorious day for it. We ventured all around Surrey Hills, including this gorgeous vineyard where we picked up some English vermouth, and gin from Silent Pool! Another wonderful day.
Nic and I explored the Five Hundred Acre Wood today (where The Hundred Acre Wood in the Winnie-the-Pooh stories was based on!) We played Pooh Sticks on the official Pooh Bridge and everything. Gorgeous day in East Sussex sunshine.
After a long, near 6 hour drive, I’m back with Nic, home in London! We’ve had a lovely chill evening with a takeaway and TV. Reunited and it feels so good!
Our last sunset walk of my trip, this time down gorgeous Cardiff Bay. I’ve had such a wonderful time this last week and a bit. It’s been a real regenerative trip, both mentally and physically, and I very much have my family to thank for that. Coming back to London much calmer.
It’s nice getting out of the house every day. Nic and I slipped out of the habit but since being in Cardiff I’ve gone on a walk every single day! It’s been so wonderful to have a change of scenery. Covid has been making me climb the walls recently…
Back working again today after my lovely break, but still from mum’s house! I’m so pleased to have a few more days hanging out with her, even if it is now sandwiched around work… We managed to fit in a lunchtime trip to M&S and a gorgeous sunset walk around the village. I’m feeling very lucky.
