The barbecue lit, a comfy bed only feet away and the promise of doing it all over again tomorrow...
Outside our tent we sat, only an hour away from home yet it could have been several. We watched the sky turn pink (along with my cheeks!) and finally started to remember what Summer should feel like. You will see from the picture above that the orange squash has now been happily replaced with a very large bottle of rose from tesco for a fiver. It lasted the whole weekend and was very gluggable indeed.
The campsite we stayed at was just outside Bourton on the Water, a really lovely place. Have you been? you should. It is INCREDIBLY touristy, but we very smugly snuck in early on Saturday, whilst only the locals could be found, grabbed provisions (ie. bacon, bread rolls) grabbed an even quicker coffee (have turned into a complete coffee snob since buying the cafe and learning about coffee) and then headed back to camp to enjoy the peace and quiet.
The cafe is finished, decor wise, and I am now turning into a real Monica and cleaning everything in sight. The oven, the griddle, the dishwasher?! I think the cutlery is next. And then maybe the floors again..
I can also start accessorising a bit now. We have a 'mosaic lady' frantically mosaicing as you read, so we can decorate our walls with her fabulous works of art. There may be a potter to come on board, as well as an artist...I love the idea of having lots of beautiful things to look at whilst enjoying a cup of coffee, and supporting local artists and businesses as much as possible is important too. We have found a new, local ice cream company which is very exciting, as we can help each other out on the PR side, and we are just about sorted with local meat as well.
Exciting times...think we may go camping again next weekend, if only to get a little bit of sleep...
Happy Birthday to my lovely Mum for tomorrow. Hope you have a great day. I promise I won't embarrass you by putting up an awful photo of you eating cake or something,
So instead I found this one! You look great in this photo, very slinky! Happy Birthday To You.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
