Adventures // Our Hampshire Adventure, Part Two

Following on from yesterday’s post… A couple of weeks ago we were invited to stay in Hampshire by the lovely folk at Hampshire’s Top Attractions. Our second full day in Hampshire was truly beautiful. We had a better sleep the second night, and breakfast the next morning was just as delicious! After visiting Waitrose to pick up picnic goodies, we headed to our destination – Exbury Gardens. I had been looking forward to this adventure ever since the ticket arrived in  ...

Adventures // Our Hampshire Adventure, Part One

I’m so used to pebbles that bruise every surface of your body, and feet that have become so hardened by stepping on these pebbles, that sand is a  ...

Family Fun // A Weekend in Whitby

At the beginning of September, we headed to Whitby with Nick’s parents to stay in their neighbours’ holiday cottage. I’d never visited Whitby before and it’s gorgeous (much better than Scarborough). It has a similar arty vibe to Lewes in Sussex. It’s also steeped in history and with the added benefit of the most amazing beaches! We had such a marvellous weekend away – lots of beach exploration, fish and chips, sandy sandwiches and laughter. It was  ...
