A Cotswolds weekend
I had such a lovely weekend. My lovely hubs took me to a hotel in the Cotswolds, and it was beautiful, dating back to the sixteenth century, and full of character. Just look at the pics....
I hasten to add, this is something we have done perhaps twice in the 12 years since we had children, so it was rather special.
The food was stunning, though this one made me giggle. While do chefs love to pile?!
There was even a bear on our bed...
Burford, where we stayed, is gorgeous. An absolutely stunning high street, brimming with lovely shops. Thank you hubs! I love you. Always.
I told you about visiting my friend's newborn. Awwww, she was so sweet. Aren't they tiny!
So, what's the horse about? Well, I volunteer at my local RDA every Wednesday night, but last night half the kids couldn't come. So I had an unexpected ride on this beauty. I haven't ridden since July, so I actually felt quite nervous, as I haven't ridden this one before, but he was lovely. Isn't confidence a funny thing. Face the things that make us nervous, and it comes back! Go into that discomfort zone!
I've made another bag - so thought I'd pop a picture in. It was meant to be Autumn inspired, but it's a bit late...
And finally, I am so thrilled with my latest charity shop finds. All from a shop that had donated their left over metres... lots of Osborne & Little and Liberty. I don't know what I'll do with them, but they are gorgeous just to look at. I got quite a few, because I just couldn't resist. Here's a selection.
Finally, huge thank you to Melmel and Lesley from Notes from my days for organising the swap. And also to Melmel for my award.
I love it. I've got to think who to pass it on to, but have to rush now. I think everyone I would have passed it on to has had it, but I'll have a think.
