a birthday and a bit of winchester

A few weeks ago it was Ali’s 33rd (we might be in our thirties, but we were both saying the other day that we still feel like we’re 24!) birthday, so we packed the kiddos off to their Grandparents and spent the morning wandering around Winchester on our own. We spend most weekends at the beach or the park, which I LOVE, but it’s really nice to get out and go to places that you can’t go with the littlies, and to eat lunch when you’re hungry and not worry about leaky nappies. Aahhh, so relaxing!

We went to all our favourite shops (Consortium and The Hambledon – me, Games Workshop – him), pottered around the flower festival (which was too packed for any good photos), sat in the garden of tranquility and enjoyed the peace, and ate sandwiches lounging on the grass outside the Cathedral. Heavenly! (He had a birthday cake of course, but it came from Waitrose rather than the Kitchen of Vicky, so wasn’t really worthy of a photo!)

    We had that blue biscuit tin growing up as kiddos! As soon as I saw it I nearly squealed out loud! So many memories…

    I love Winchester – and those bottle green chairs! x
