Trip to Italy

After 5 years, we finally got to visit Italy again. I think we were both in need of just getting away for a little while and this did the trick! Already can’t wait for our next trip back.

We stayed in Harrys parents house, had the log burner on in the evenings, lay ins with coffee in the mornings and explored the surrounding areas and the village during the day. I think my favourite part was Lago Sinizzo, about a 20 mins drive from the house. A lake of perfect aqua mountain water - and because we went out of peak time, there were only 2 or 3 other people there! It was so relaxing to warm our bodies in the sun and dip in and out of the water for a few hours.

A New Place

We’re moving back to Suffolk next week (aaaahhh, still so much to pack)!

Last weekend we went to visit our new house, in our new sleepy riverside town, to see how the renovations have been coming along. I’ve not even moved in and I’m in love with it - hope I’m not jinxing it by saying that. All of the renovations that had to take place before we moved in have been done to such a high standard, it made me forget it’s a rental!

I can’t wait to get in there and start taking photos, and making things in my shed studio in the garden (!!! dream come true alert)

speaking of dreams come true, there are ROSEBUSHES:

A Warm Weekend Through My Phone

The weekend was warm, busy and a little intensewe found a place to live in Hastings - the first place we saw! It has beautiful bay windows and original fireplaces, I'm now dreaming of decorating it with all of our things and cycling to work on the seafront. Zissou is going to love the views of the park with all of the moorhens Four weeks to go!

Dunwich Beach & Heath

Dunwich beach & heath is turning in to one of my favourite places this summer. We've been on 3 occasions in the last 3 months and it just gets more and more beautiful. Of course we, the hermits, decided to go on the hottest bank holiday Monday of the year. IT WAS SO BUSY and I usually would have hated it, but once I was in my own bubble (beach towel = bubble on this occasion) I was fine. It was definitely tinged with a slight sadness that it felt like the end of summer, but I'm hoping we will have one more day of warm sunshine so we can go again (fingers crossed). beach days 2
