Not at all like the middle of April – I love it.
The weather has been beautiful the last few days! So, so warm . 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 .
That was me sorted for the afternoon sit back, relax and feel the burn.
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 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.
All of the houses were so grand and elegant!
This one looked like a Doll’s House .
The church was also very splendid.
And then the pub itself was also lovely ! 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!
Dear sun, please stay and give us more beautiful days like this!
