I spent last weekend at a friend's house in Beaulieu, New Forest. I went with Rich, my sister, my brother in law, my nephew and some friends. We only went for two days but it was the perfect escape from London and just what I needed!
We spent most of Saturday relaxing and playing in the pool and in the evening we cooked some fresh local crab which was amazing! After dinner we made a small fire and toasted some marshmallows which is one of my most favourite things to do. We were all put in charge of one meal each, so Rich and I did breakfast and luckily it went down well!
On Sunday we went for a walk around the local village and then visited my parents at The Pig. The hotel and the grounds were so beautiful and the Kitchen Garden was like nothing I've seen so I definitely want to go back and stay there for a night. We had lunch fresh from their outdoor pizza oven and I had to try the chocolate and honeycomb ice cream, which I can confirm was absolutely incredible.
Sometimes, especially if you work from home, escaping to the countryside is the perfect cure for stress. It's definitely something I want to do more often and now I'm back with a clear head and loads of motivation.
So how do you feel about some more 'lifestyle' posts on here?
