Farewell weekend!

Another weekend has come and gone, so sad it’s back to grey since the weather was beautiful with bright blue skies on Saturday! I think we should have three day weekends, two days go by too fast! This weekend was spent visiting my Grandparents-in-law, wandering the shops nearby, placing an order for a ring, visiting a castle and cafe.

I originally wanted to get a ring from Rust as they have some wonderful designs, however I thought I’d take a look at some local independent shops as it’s nice to support local businesses. Especially if they have good customer service like the one I decided to use. I’m also on a lookout for a pretty necklace, I’m thinking something delicate, something cute but if I cant find this cute necklace I’ll go classic and find single diamond or pearl necklace.

After the shops we headed towards a cafe we wanted to try which is based in a castle. It’s a sweet little cafe but we weren’t impressed with some aspects which I’ll do a separate post on. The location was fantastic though as afterwards we had a look around the castle and discovered the underground tunnels. This place would be great for a Halloween party!

After a quick snap with the lighthouse we strolled over to my G-in-law’s place and was treated to a white magnum ice cream and later a cup of tea served in my favourite china cups. It’s really sweet that they get out my favourite cups just for us. I think they are from the national trust and one cup is covered in roosters and the other blue tits!

  1. Those castle/tunnels look super creepy – can imagine people doing ghost hunting down there or something. Those pink roses are so pretty. I should definitely buy flowers more often, they really improve people’s moods too!
