Today was scheduled to be lovely and we debated doing a treasure hunt but decided against it and just to go for a wander over in the Purbecks. We thought we might go up to the Castle at Corfe. We knew we needed to make the most of the weather as the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend does not bode well.
The clouds came blacker and blacker and by the time we hit Wareham it was a deluge. Don't these clouds ever listen! There was no rain forecast. None!
It was, thankfully, short lived and when it stopped the sun came out and it was warm and sunny and glorious.
We had no plan in mind and ended up at Worth Matravers .. a gorgeous village and the site of woodhenge.
Jakki had shown me pictures of her birthday cream tea at a gorgeous little tea rooms and we thought we would try it. We were not sure we would get in as you usually have to book but we were there at the right time and had a perfect table. As we were leaving there was no room at the inn and they were turning people away.
It was so quintessentially English. I loved the vintage mis-matched china, the gorgeous English cottage garden and the scones were delicious.
It was a gorgeous gorgeous day out ... and so close to home. We even built in a cruise. OK so it was just the five minute ferry crossing but heck!
I have a new page to share today made with a brand new collection by Jennifer Labre called Mouse Memories. I think it is going to get a LOT of use.
Today I am thankful that
- we live in a beautiful part of the country
- the sunshine came good
- finishing a big project
what's inside is pretty cool too!
