Country Girls!

Have I ever mentioned that I’m a city girl at heart? I love being in London. I like crowded bars and museums and shops and having a choice of six different places to get coffee from. But sometimes I also like to take a bit of a break.

So this bank holiday weekend my boyfriend and I went back to my parents’ house in the country for a long, good old fashioned English weekend. I caught up with old school friends, had barbecues, drank cider in country pubs, ate my parents home cooked food, and probably put on about a stone! And on Monday we decided to go exploring down by the river.


My boyfriend laughed at my so-called explorer’s outfit…I didn’t realise he was literally going to take me into the middle of nowhere!
 


We started off just walking along the river…
 










We ended up in the middle of the countryside, feeling completely cut off from the rest of the world.








I got an ice cream as a reward and then spent the rest of the day recovering by sunbathing in the garden with a diet coke. (And eating more barbecue food – obviously).


 
I’m going on a big detox now, but it was completely worth it for such a gorgeous weekend!

What did you all get up to?
