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.
Another trip up to Brecon today to see Mel and the kids! The drive is so breathtakingly beautiful. I’m trying to really soak it all in before I eventually head back to London on Friday. Today was a gorgeous day, both weather and emotionally, I just love being back with my family after so long, every day spent with them is such a treat.
Mum and I went on a vineyard tour today in Wales’ oldest vineyard! It was so interesting, I learnt a lot about wine making and got to meet some adorable llamas and very small sheep (so they can eat the grass but not reach the grapes!). It was a gorgeous day out with the sun shining down on us and our glistening glasses of wine.
Today was so lush. I spent a lot of it playing with my 2 year old nephew which was so much fun. Here’s me and my sister, it’s been such a joy hanging out with them and I get to see them again on Monday before I head home later in the week!
Today started off with a pilates class for me and mum! I enjoyed it more than any recent YouTube class I’ve done before which I’m really excited about. We then popped into town so I could get new running shoes due to my old ones giving me grief. Look how fun they are! I need to keep resting though as I’ve given myself an injury from wearing older shoes… what a plum!
