I suppose we wont get many more weekends as gorgeous as this one?! I hope you all lapped it up and made the most of it? I certainly did, this weekend has definitely been one of my favourites this year, it was pretty much perfect.
Friday night Stef and I stayed at home with some drinks and did some geeking out on my blog.Saturday we hopped on the Vespa and scooted up to Camden for some impulsive inking. Ouch. I'm not sure if I'll share this on my blog yet, tattoos are a pretty personal thing, aren't they? No doubt I'm sure you'll see it at somepoint anyway, particularly in my videos.
We got a bottle of wine and a mini picnic of ham rolls and cherry bakewells, and scooted to somewhere called Hill Gate Gardens, in Hapstead. It's just next to the Heath, but quite hidden away down a little pathway. The gardens are beautiful, it's such a peaceful little spot, you would never know it was in the heart of London. We sat under a humungous old tree, which I instantly loved as it had billions of carvings in it.
On Sunday we decided to take a little trip out of London for the day to a village next to Guilford called Godlaming. It was quite a long drive so we stopped off in Richmond for breakfast in a little Tea cafe. We drove through all the country lanes, and it was so nice to get out of the city.
When we arrived we sat in a little open-front restaurant and had yet another bottle of wine. Whilst wondering from the restraunt to the pub to sample the local cider, we came accross some morris dancers who basically dragged me into the photo with them. I love morris dancers, I know that's totally geeky, I think it's the Devon child inside me.
We took a little stroll through the church grounds down to the park, where there was a band playing on the bandstand and families picnicing everywhere.Godlaming is the cutest place, it's so quaint, idealic and twee.
Before the trip home, we took a little drive up to The Charterhouse, which is a private school. It really blew me away, it's such beautiful building and grounds are totally stunning. I think it's crazy that people go to school there, I hope they realise how lucky they are, it would be somewhere I'd want to get married!
I literally didn't want to leave Godlaming, it was so perfect.
I got that Sunday evening feeling in my tummy, you know, where you just don't want to go to school the next day?!
I was going to film my tanning video when we got home but I was totally zonked! All I could manage was the #bbloggers chat on Twitter, and even that was a push. I did get a mention in the summary though, which was really sweet.
Wow, I seem to have harped on for a while, I guess I'm in a chatty mood, sorry!
What did you all get up to this weekend? Where you out in the sun?
