When I come home from work on a 'keep free' day I tend to light lots of candles through the house and enjoy spending time making a yummy dinner or trying a new recipe whilst I wait for Tom to get home. The rest of the evening is for pajamas, movies on the sofa and cuddles with Bodhi. I often go early to bed and then Facetime Tom from upstairs to beg him to bring me up a Sleep Easy tea - which he usually does! Speaking of Tom, he also brought home the lilies in the photo below as a present on Friday, they are gorgeous and have filled the house with such a beautiful fragrance.

Last night I went for dinner at The Old Vicarage in Highcliffe with the lovely Hannah from Baileycakes. It was our second dinner date after I was a terrible date on our first a few weeks ago and had to dash off to do homework from the course I was attending back then. The restaurant (part of a hotel in a country house) is gorgeous and they were really accomodating, especially considering I ordered a dish with mushrooms in when I can't eat them! Whilst we were there we chatted about the other cool/quirky restaurants around us and I spent my lunchbreak today looking up restaurants and tea rooms in Bournemouth and the New Forest so I can start a big list and tick them all off (I am basically 100% nicking Hannah's idea to do this - sorry Hannah!) If you know of any cool little places do let me know! I'm still new to living here but I want to make much more of an effort to explore where I live and find all the hidden gems. In addition to that I also want to make a list of places I want to visit in the UK and start ticking them off - I do really love Britain and I want to get to know more of it.
