It Feels And Looks Like Summer!


Not at all like the middle of April – I love it.

The weather has been beautiful the last few days! So, so warm Open-mouthed smile. The flip-flops have come out from under my bed and back on my feet after a long, cold winter!

I spent some quality time in the sunshine purely relaxing yesterday. Ah bliss.

My essential items in the garden consisted of flip-flops, hand cream and sunnies! A magazine would have topped it off nicely but maybe next time Winking smile.

After a lazy afternoon in the sun I was ready for a workout at the gym, but sensed it was going to be a hot one. I wasn’t proven wrong either! I wore my shorts for the first time to the gym and definitely needed them even though the air conditioning felt like it was on full blast!

I had planned on running but after just a few minutes in my knee began to hurt again Sad smile I swore it was better as it hasn’t hurt for the past few days! I was a bit gutted as I have rested it for a whole week. Looks like it still needs longer. Instead I did a 30 minute elliptical workout and set the levels to a higher intensity so I could feel the burn in my thighs!

Today we took the grandparents out to a beautiful little village for lunch for some more relaxation in the sunshine.

Before lunch we took a stroll around the village – it was honestly all so pretty, every direction you looked in there was a picturesque view.

It had a little stream, a mill, church and of course the pub.

And then the pub itself was also lovely Smile! We had lunch at The Rose Inn in the garden over looking the green.

It was a really peaceful and lovely location to take a trip to on a day like this.

Our food was delicious too. We all ordered a main meal to save Mum from having to spend time in the kitchen tonight cooking a meal. I had the lasagne and gave it two big thumbs up – so flavourful and I especially loved the fact that it was really cheesy! Open-mouthed smile
