Escape to the Country

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a real home-bird, and as much as I looove the city and my little home there, nothing quite beats coming home to the country and clearing out the cobwebs. This time, I bought 2 of my besties along for the trip.

We were greeted by Max, of course, who was super excited as usual! He normally jumps up on the counter about five minutes before I arrive – how do dogs justĀ know?!Anyway, Max was super excited because L is practically another member of our family and he’s known Max since Max was a teeny puppy, and he was generally excited to meet H, because he knows a good egg when he sees one šŸ˜‰

It was time to brace ourselves against theĀ freezing cold weather, and venture out in to the country. No phone reception, no Twitter, no Instagram – justĀ nothing but beautiful views and your best friends; Ā it’s the perfect place to walk along with friends and tell each other everything you’ve been needing to get off your chest…

Then it was time to return home, to warm up with cups of tea all round and a slice of delicious salted caramel cake… I’m still dreaming of this, tbh:

We wondered to the local country pub and feasted, laughing and chatting the night away – as is custom when you’ve been friends for as long as we have. Throw in my Mum to the mix too, and it’s the perfect evening šŸ™‚

When we finally headed home under the brightest moon I’ve ever seen, we cracked open another bottle of fizz, shimmied into our jimmie-jams, put on the fire and sat down to a game of cards – is there anything better than hanging out with three of your best friends, your dog, next to the fire with a bottle of fizz?Ā No, I don’t think there is. Also,Ā I’m obsessed with taking polaroids at the moment, so I wanted to capture some of our special weekend in polaroid form:

Cheers to the weekend – is it really Monday tomorrow?
