Very Warm in London

We went to London last weekend to watch baseball, it was very warm so we didn’t do much else, but here are some highlights

We ate a tasty lunch at Natural Kitchen.

Our hotel was next to the Tower of London.

We had a nice breakfast on Sunday morning.

We went to Regent Street for a brief shopping trip and then headed back to the station and our train home, it was just too warm for anything else!



We had a shopping trip to Cirencester a couple of weeks ago. It was a grey day, but at least it didn’t rain.

We started our visit with some coffee and cake.

We always enjoy a trip to m.a.d.e, they have lots of pretty things.

We picked up some dinner at the farmers market.

No trip to Cirencester would be complete without a good mooch around the antiques centre.

All The Stations

We went on an adventure by train for the All The Stations #haveanadventure weekend. We chose Kenilworth as our destination as it is close to home and the station only opened last year.

We walked to the station in Leamington Spa.

Our train was very small!

We saw a little bit of countryside on our short journey.

A few minutes later we arrived in Kenilworth.

We walked around the shops for an hour or so.

We had a tasty lunch at the Almanack.

It was a very windy day so after lunch we headed back to the station.

All The Castles

For Pauly’s birthday, which also happened to be Easter Sunday, we went out to see a castle or two and eat a picnic. We had amazing sunny, warm weather for our trip.

First we went to Wigmore Castle. It was a nice walk from where we parked the car.

The castle might be ruins but there are many bits from various parts of the castle that give you a good sense of the scale of the site.

The views were stunning. We could see why they chose this location to build a castle!

It was a really pretty spot, great fun to explore.

Our next stop was Clun Castle, just a few miles away. This castle is also in ruins, but not spread out as far as Wigmore Castle.

This was another amazing location, situated within the Shropshire Hills AONB.

We were so lucky to have such good weather for this trip, it made a fun trip into a wonderful day out!

Family Weekend

Last weekend we went to visit ZoĆ« ‘s family. This meant a shopping trip to Brighton and picnicking!

A trip to Snoopers Paradise is always so much fun.

Lunch from Hell’s Kitchen was yummy! We had a big salad.

We did lots of shopping in the North Laines.

On Sunday we had a picnic on Ashdown Forest. It was grey and misty so we didn’t feel like going for much of a walk.

Weekend in Windsor

Last weekend we went to Windsor for a couple of days. We were very lucky with the weather, it was very warm and Sunny for February.

We stayed at the Castle Hotel, we had a nice room with views of the castle.

We ate at the hotel restaurant. The food was very good.

Saturday was really foggy. We went to the castle, it was excellent.

We even saw the Changing of the Guard.

The sun finally came out!

In the afternoon we walked the Long Walk from the castle to a statue of George III.

We had dinner at Meejana, a Lebanese restaurant. We had lots of mezze!

On Sunday we had breakfast at Bill’s.

After looking at a few final sights we went home.
