Escaping for an afternoon.

Sometimes, even on the gloomiest of days, it's nice to escape outside for a couple of hours in the afternoon and forget about your seemingly never ending to-do list. We went to the river and got accosted by ducks, angry that we didn't have anything to give them, before finding somewhere to go for a late lunch. It was lovely and just what we needed before heading home to upcycle our old dining tables & chairs, which took forever and turned out to be one of those projects you wish you never started!

  5. Completely agree. A good walk outside can make a big difference to how you feel. I just wish it wasn't so cold! (I'm in the NE Scotland, which hasn't decided which season we're in yet!) xx

  13. Love your pictures. Back when I lived in London I loved sitting on a bench in the park, just watching ducks. It was perfect to enjoy the city in such a quiet way & took me out of the rush for just a short period of time. :)

  26. Love this and we had a really similar afternoon today although, my Costa was only a medium because I have only once dared to attempt the large, double handle whopper that they do and I was googling heart palpitations for the rest of the afternoon!! It was the first coffee to defeat me haha. Such a lovely blog... x

    P.S If you get the time to have a look at our new little blog that would be so great, if not then I shall continue to read yours anyway (not just because of the gorgeous bunny pics!!)

    1. Haha they are completely enormous, we'd never had that size before and we weren't expecting it to be that big! Of course!

  28. This looks like such a lovely wee day! Sometimes the unplanned days are the best- so good to get out and about and clear your mind. We're going to aim to make the most of the good weather (fingers crossed!) for bank holiday Monday tomorrow- just take off somewhere. Here's hoping wherever we end up has chips and massive two-handled mugs like you! Xxx
