A weekend in the country

Well it’s always nice to head out to the countryside especially when it’s to visit a chocolate box village with 3 fabulous pubs and a local brewery. Miss Macey and I spent splendid sunny days in a gorgeous little place near Farnham in Surrey. If only my camera had been charged I could have wowed you with cottage gardens spilling with colour still in bloom enjoying the Indian summer. We went for country walks where I apparently looked like a city girl as I was the odd one out with silly smart boots, clearly should have packed the wellies!!

Our lovely host Nicky spoilt us rotten in true English style, Earl Grey tea and Fortnum & Mason biccies on arrival. A spot of shopping in chi chi Farnham for us, while the others played tennis. We then lounged in the gorgeous living room on comfy sofas with a log fire roaring away. After much hilarity, story swapping and more tea we popped out to the pub. Now I do love a real British pub. Scrumptious homemade food, great atmosphere and no worries about how loud we were all being.

Such a relaxing and hilarious weekend was just what the doctor ordered, especially as it was topped off with a tasty roast with all the trimmings and the best sticky treacle pudding ever. I need to get the recipe yummm.
