Today we took a drive around the Leicestershire countryside that we are soon to be calling home. Oh how I love the hay bales strewn across the fields at this time of year, it is so comforting to think that these very fields are spitting distance from our new home. We have started to familiarise ourselves with the localities, shopping in the local shops and villages, showing our faces and all that!

After a lovely day, we spent the afternoon yummy iced buns. Since the latest series of Great British Bake Off started, my friends and colleagues have been setting me little challenges each week. This week I was tasked with iced buns. I think they look alright for a first attempt, even though I don't think Paul Hollywood would be too impressed with my imperfect buns! I can not wait to sit down with a pot of tea and an iced bun and watch Bake Off with my boys!

Hanbury Hall

A quiet family Sunday trip to Hanbury Hall and gardens. Time spent playing and being silly, making the most of the time before our baby starts school next week.

Charlecote by Louie

Yesterday I visited Charlecote Park with my friends Isaac and Alistair. I took lots of photos of my friends and the flowers and had a lovely time playing boules and running around.

See you soon,

Round Up

Another round up of our week via Instagram. I do apologise for being much better at updating instagram than my lovely blog as of late. My time, simply has not been spent on my computer I am afraid.
Too much time spent out of doors, crafting, painting, making, reading and planning. This past week has been filled with
  • a camera-less visit to Packwood House in the pouring rain, just me, the husband and the bee.
  • picking colours for our new house from the Farrow and Ball catalogue
  • painting a bird house
  • playing cowboys
  • buying school uniforms
  • nana/mother hen's birthday
  • painting with oil paints for the first time in 6 years
  • a breakfast picnic
  • my Auntie and Uncles Ruby wedding anniversary BBQ, including looking through old wedding photos!

A Breakfast Picnic


Saturday morning we were up early for a stroll through our favourite woodlands. As Pappy was busy for most of the day, we packed up a breakfast picnic to squeeze in some family time before the busy weekend.
