I’m back!

I’m back people! Back from a week away in the New Forest, staying with my family in a lovely bungalow with an outside swimming pool in Norley Wood.

We went for lots of walks, bike rides and even took a day trip to the Isle of Wight, which felt like an extra bonus holiday within a holiday.

I ate an icecream a day (almost) and sampled a few of the pubs within the National Park. I cooed over the wild horses and the donkeys and thought I saw a tiger….It was a cow that was sitting down which was an orangey colour with black stripes, that made me do a double take! My Mum agreed with me that it really looked like a tiger – I do not need to go to Specsavers, honest!

I sit here writing this with both of my heels in Compeeds after on Wednesday, Rob and I decided to go for a long walk and I then realised that I had left my walking boots in the back of my parents car, which they had already gone out for the day in. So after a few texts back and forth I borrowed my Mums boots. She is a size 5 and I am a size 6, and when I tried them on they felt OK, a little bit snug but in a kind of I need to cut my toenails kind of snug. So I decided I would wear them, rather than walk through woods wearing my Birkenstocks!

Well after six odd miles and despite the boots being a little snug, I was a limping, whining wreck! When we reached Beaulieu (a lovely village BTW) I had to phone my Dad to pick me up. The first time I have done so since I was around 16!

Aside from blisters bigger than a £2 coin on my plates of meat and a sore sun burnt neck, I had a great time. Rob and I cant wait to get our campervan fixed up and running to go on spontaneous weekend trips to lovely places like this. Maybe next summer, fingers crossed!
