Looking back at today’s photos I can’t believe it was all one day! We’ve done so much! This morning Huxley went to nursery so we each did some work and then we drove to Wimborne to visit Toad Hall which is like a massive old warehouse full of cool vintage stuff (a bit like Molly’s Den for all you local folk). Then we drove to Travis Perkins to buy a toilet (so glam I know!).
After picking Huxley up from nursery he fell asleep for a couple of hours so we did a bit more work and then Nick suddenly decided that it was too hot and he wanted to go in the sea so we drove to the beach. After about an hour of paddling and seaweed-throwing we came home and had dinner in the garden. A very lovely, but very busy day!
Huxley’s vest is from Gap, his Gruffalo swim shorts & striped shorts are from Sainsburys.
Yesterday we to a summer fair at a local village called Hinton Martell. I’m a little bit addicted to attending village fairs at the moment. I just love the vibe. Especially when it’s all run by local people, opening their gardens up with homemade cakes and Pimms tents. And hook-a-duck in the fountain. Perfect.
After that we drove to The White Post in Rimpton. Nick’s friend Brett runs it and he’s an amazing chef so when he asks you over for a BBQ you don’t say no! His place has the most incredible views over the Somerset countryside and you can see Glastonbury Tor in the distance. Huxley had a great time riding his scooter and playing football with his sons and they’ve got ducks & chickens at the bottom of the garden too that he was pretty excited about!
The views on the drive home aren’t bad either! I love where I live <3
Yesterday we went to Cranborne Garden Centre. It was amazing. It’s like walking into an explosion of colour. It’s one of the most relaxing places I’ve ever been. Also, no mobile signal. Winner.
There was a farmer’s market on too so we milled around, bought some jam and scoffed some delicious vanilla shortbread from the cafe.
After a quick stop at the park we drove out to a little village called Martin. There’s tons of tiny little villages near us that I’ve never seen despite having grown up here so I keep going off on random little road trips to be a nosey parker.
