{hello} winchester


Hello all!

Happy Monday! Jack & I headed into Winchester on Friday for a little jaunt around the pretty town and to have a nice pre-birthday lunch {it was Jack's birthday on Sunday!}.

We actually popped in to lots of nice shops, including my all time fave for home inspiration - The Hambledon - which, I must say didn't disappoint! If you don't live near Winchester, they have an awesome website and online shop now so you can have a little peek at that here!

After having a little wander round the shops we stopped at Jamie Oliver's restaurant - Union Jacks. It's really good, I happened to stumble upon it with a friend on its opening day, and Jack was most jealous  - so I thought it only fair to take him for a little pre-birthday lunch!

Please excuse the pictures....I apparently can't handle manual focus in low light!! {BOO}


Hope you had an ace weekend too!

p.s I also had a custom order from a lovely lady of 40 illustrated notebooks! Hoorah! :)

{sunshine} what a contrast!

So just prior to my horrible knee op I travelled up to Edinburgh for a week away with my dear friend Bing to celebrate our close friends Jules and Steven's wedding. I've never been to bonny Scotland before and so expected it to be pretty picturesque and generally ace - it was both, but unlucky for us it literally rained for the entire time we were there (with the exception of the day of the wedding which turned out to be the most glorious sunny day!). I took some rather pretty pictures up in Scotland despite the downpour so thought I'd share them with you..it's funny actually as the unfortunate weather we had is completely different to how it's been pretty much ever since we got back!

I'll be pretty sad when this sunny spell is over..
Anyway here are some snaps of beautiful Edinburgh and one I took today during a hobbly jolly around the lovely town of Winchester - what a contrast it was!










{Hello sunny Winchester and your cute Jubilee bunting!}

P.S. Thought I'd chuck in a cheeky snap from the gorgeous Jules and the lovely Steven's wedding too...they had a photo booth with props...such FUN!
