weekend in the country – day one
This is the first day of our two day weekend adventure. First things first – a good breakfast to get started. Strawberries and pears and yogurt on muesli. Then it's time to pack (I left it to the last minute, nothing new there) and to make myself up...
and decide if I should be with or without lipstick? The pin curl I put in my fringe/bang had not gone well and needed a bit more work.
And I decide on red lipstick after all! It's not a long journey but we were already really hungry, and so some road trips noms were needed: sushi! Oh, and a picnic bar. Yum!
The house in the country side is beautiful. We were staying with six other people, ranging from good friends to people we had never met before. They were all lovely, but I'd offered to cook for everyone in a moment of optimism earlier in the week..! I had lots of help preparing things, and then... it was all down to me! It went really well. Phew.
And then what else is good for weekends away? Fires going in the massive fire place, cheese and wine and talking all night. Awesome.
