This past weekend was my first ever hen-do. Not even joking. The whole weekend spent in a gorgeous house in the Cotswolds with a lovely bunch of girls.
While I can’t share what happened, what happens at the hen stays at the hen, I can share a few of the photos I took of the amazing place we stayed. A very gorgeous house (That a family actually live in!) in the Cotswolds, near Gloucester.
The hills are alive! Or not… it was a very quiet morning.
Nice to see the road I drove down the night before. Littered with apples from the nearby tree.
Our beautiful home for the weekend.
And again, our beautiful home for the weekend.
The first morning we were lucky with the weather. Clear blue skies and sunshine!
The little town of Dursley.
I don’t quite know what this was. A wall, with a door. Looked interesting enough.
The raging torrents! Or just a little stream.
The main entrance. I kid you not.
Such a beautiful front door.
Heading into the grounds.
The “garden”. As in the massive grounds surrounding the house.
There’s a waterfall, pool, and so much more!
Trees! Grass! Nature.
Just one of the inside shots I remembered to take. The study/drawing room.
And another from the same room.
Like I said above, a family lived in this house. Mum, dad and two kids. A house that, comfortably, housed 20 women. My mind was blown by that fact. My 10-year-old self would have LOVED to have been living in that house. Beautiful.
For the past couple of weeks I’ve been working from home. Well on and off. But this whole week, I have been exclusively working from home. Making the most of the benefits of working from home. Getting an hour extra … Continue reading
There is not enough ice in the world for me right now.
I’m spending my time catching up on Comedians in Cars Drinking Coffee. The BF told me to give it a watch. It is brilliant. Cars, comedians and just general conversation. Love it. Also, I wish this to be the future of TV. FREE, quality stuff.
It’s another thing the BF suggested I do. Here’s the thing. I don’t mind bananas. I will quite happily eat a banana. The piece of fruit. Don’t you dare mix it in a fruit salad or anything. Just leave the banana alone. I’m not a fan of banana flavoured things either. HATE bananas in smoothies or milkshakes. When I was little I hated that banana flavoured medicine we used to have to take when we got ill. Just gross. So, the BF told me to make banana bread. I was complaining that I had some very black looking bananas. And rather than waste them, I’m better off making something with them. So… banana bread is what I baked. But then, I had to go off on a tangent. With some extra batter I made a few banana bread muffins with some peanut butter in the middle. Hate to admit this publicly like this, but I think the BF might be right. Banana bread is most excellent. Banana bread muffins with peanut butter are even more excellent.
It’s a chilled out day just hanging at home. Catching up on some blog writing and some such.
Successfully made it to Day 50 of the 365. WOO! Sadly, not much of a celebratory photo. Just me relaxing at home after seeing my brother with a cup of coffee and The Wire on TV. Season 4 episode 10 if anyone’s interested. Apologies if you’re not.
