Sorry for the radio silence over here. I’ve been pretty poorly this week, not to mention rushed off my feet! As we’d both caught up on all our work we kind of took today off and decided to visit Barford Farm in Wimborne as we’d heard really good things about their ice-cream. We weren’t disappointed. First things first though, the outfit…(probably shouldn’t do it just after a nappy-change though. I don’t think we’ll be seeing talc-knees on the catwalk any time soon)
Huxley keeps crashing my outfit shots…

Anyway, back to the ice-cream. Barford Farm is about 30 minutes away from us but it’s definitely worth the drive. It’s part of the Kingston Lacy Estate and it’s so beautiful. Everything is made fresh on-site and the flavours change daily. Once you’ve grabbed your ice-cream, you can find yourself a nice, quiet spot to relax in in the garden – it’s full of hidden nooks and crannies. There’s also a water fountain full of fish that Huxley was rather enamoured with.
It took us a long time to decide what flavours to go for but we got Huxley a strawberry children’s cone, Nick got pineapple sorbet and hazelnut and I went for classic vanilla and chocolate. I find things easier to judge when they are nailing the basics. It’s the same with pizza. If the margherita is spot on then you know you’re onto a winner. Our friends went to Barford Farm the other week and had maple syrup ice-cream so we’ll be back for sure to try more!
These pictures are a little bit random now but I didn’t feel there was enough here to make a whole separate post out of them. Nick’s brother & his wife were down last weekend and we went out for the day at Poole Quay. We took Elsie with us which was really nice because although we see her often, we rarely get to go out and about with her. It was lovely watching Elsie & Huxley walking around holding hands and looking in people’s buckets for crabs along the Quay.
