24 May 2012

Your itchy feet like mine

I had such an awesome day today.  Tom and I have been apart a bit lately due to us both working away so we decided to book the day off work and spend some time together enjoying the sunshine.  We went for a bike ride in Bolderwood in the New Forest and took the dog so he could have a good run around too.  It was such a beautiful day and because it was midweek there was no-one else around.  I've had a bit of a cold and a bad throat lately so it did me good to have lots of fresh air! We only cycled about four miles as we had the dog and because it was so hot it made it difficult to do too much strenuous cycling!

Tom had suggested we had a picnic for lunch so we went to Sainsbury's on the way and bought half of their deli counter (lots of yummy tarts and pies!) along with some crisps, dips, Prosecco, strawberries and cream.  It was so nice being out in the forest in the sunshine with a glass of ice cold fizz (Tom has a cool box!) Then we came home and spent some time sorting out the garden.  We now have a little water feature and lots of things are flowering and growing.  It's going to be amazing for barbecues soon! We were going to go swimming tonight but I'm too exhausted from all the sunshine.  Have you been enjoying the heat or have you been stuck at work all day? I'll be back there tomorrow unfortunately!

I am a serious cyclist, I have cycling gloves and everything

  1. Ahhh I'm jealous - sounds like you had such a perfect day! Love your picnic basket too! I've been stuck at work this week, although luckily I don't work in an office so it's nice to spend lots of time out with the kids I look after. xx

  5. Gosh, I'd love to cycle about the New Forest. I might have to ride over there this weekend if the weather is still as glorious as it has been.

  6. Your picnic basket is so cute!! (: I wish there was someplace near me like this whilst I'm at uni. I love cycling but I haven't yet found anywhere decent in the surrounding area to go and explore! (: xx

  8. So jealous of your day - I've been stuck in my office, which overlooks the beer garden of the student bar, so seeing people having fun in the sun is horrible. I did nip out for lunch though! Your picnic box is amazing too :)

    I'd love to go for a bike ride with my boyfriend - unfortunately, he never learnt to ride a bike! I keep telling him I'll get us a tandem or some stabiliser wheels for him, neither of which he seems very keen on!

  10. That sounds like the perfect day! Your pic-nic basket has to be the cutest I've ever seen! I was at work unfortunately, but I've been trying to leave work before 6 for a change and enjoy a little bit of the sun. Last night we went for a 45 minute walk along the old railway lines to a pub beer garden then walked back which was lovely. X

  13. Aw, this is lovely! Such sweet photos too.

    I had an ace day - managed to convince my boss to close the office early so we could all go and drink in the sun, so much fun! Feeling a bit sun burnt and delicate this morning though... x

  15. That sounds like a really lovely day. I'm graduating soon so will be leaving the city and moving back to my parents house in Aberdeenshire soon but the idea of being able to go for a walk in the country makes me feel okay that I'm leaving.

    And that picnic basket is so cute!

  24. You may be a serious cyclist with gloves but neither of you are wearing a helmet!! Safety first young lady! Looks like you had fun though - I've been wishing to be out in the sun all week I have only had small glimpses of playground duty! I enjoyed it today though :)
