On Sunday we go to a hotel near us for a couple of nights as part of a Red Letter Days voucher I won in a competition - the hotel is not far from us but I love the idea of being able to do all the tourist-y things nearby that we haven't had a chance to do since we moved here! We'll be taking our bikes (and Bodhi!) and doing some exploring, having a couple of nice dinners out and probably drinking lots of cider as I booked it for the weekend the town has its apple pressing weekend - think trips to a cider farm on a tractor and lots of cider tasting!
On Wednesday I've booked us into a yurt for a couple of nights in Wales (in the Wye Valley). The yurt has a wood-burning stove and a rolltop bath and just looks amazing, not to mention being set on a hillside with some breathtaking scenery. From there we go on to a holiday cottage nearby with some of my family to celebrate my Mum's 60th birthday for a few days - the holiday cottage looks equally beautiful and I'm looking forward to more lazing around, reading books, going on walks and pub dinners! The day I arrive home I'll be swapping suitcases and going off on a leadership course in Surrey for three days. No rest for the wicked eh?
I'm hoping I can snatch some internet here and there and I'll also schedule some bits in before I go - I have quite a lot of exciting things to show you, some outfits and I also want to share with you the huge pile of books I'll be taking with me and get any more recommendations for must-reads! Of course I'll be taking my cameras with me and I can't wait to show you the places I'm visiting!
For now though, here is an outfit from this week. This is what I wore to work on Tuesday I think. A lot of it is old stuff actually - the skirt was from Zara from a couple of years ago and never quite fit me properly so having lost a little weight it's gratifying to be able to take it out of the wardrobe and give it a new lease of life!
