This week Meg got a stunning view from 120ft high swinging from a crane at Batsford Arboretum. Just a normal day in The Cotswolds, hey? A sad day at Batsford though, one of their Giant Red Woods grew rot at the base so needed to be taken down for safety reasons. After local tree surgeons had finished what they do best, they offered me a little tour. How could I resist!? Such beautiful views of Moreton, the Arboretum and beyond.
Harry and I made some time in our busy weeks to take a morning off together and go for a long walk while the Autumn sunshine was in full force. How lucky are we to still have this glorious, summer like weather at the end of September? It's too good to waste. So, we headed to Bibury for a walk and a pint. Blog post to follow soon.
This week has been manic. Work is incredibly busy but James and I have been enjoying the rest of the Autumn sunshine and the wonders our favourite season has to offer! We've been to ANOTHER food festival in Shipston and met The Wild Oven to do a taste test for a certain celebration next year. We also went to meet the Reverand who will be marrying us, which has made things very real. Talking about weddings we went to our friends engagement party and I drank far too much wine. We have had cosy fires on the cooler nights, sat outside on the sunnier nights and popped into my parents for a classic roast dinner! We also found time for a Latte at Huxley's, our new favourite place in Chipping Campden. Told you it was a busy week!
We loved having the dogs this weekend which meant long walks and blackberry picking! We also did some apple picking ready for our guest blogger to take to Painswick Apple Festival, blog to follow! And finally... Happy Birthday to my gorgeous Nephew who was 2 this week!
