Swanage

Thanks for all the responses on my blanket colour dilemma!  I will update on that in my next post, as I've been a bit distracted with a lovely break away in Swanage with the Lumberjack!


We had a great time - above is a vase we bought as a souvenir of our holiday.  (It looks better in real life actually - the photo looks a bit dreary)

We took the steam train to Corfe Castle...



One day, after a misty walk...


...from Worth Matravers to Winspit...


...and back again, we visited a lovely tearoom in Worth Matravers...






... and rewarded ourselves with a delicious Dorset cream tea!


Scrumptious!  That tearoom was probably my favourite bit of the break, it was just lovely.  It had a pretty garden too, and even the toilet was nice, with vintage tin signs hung up in it.

Well, I won't bore you with any more holiday pictures!  I'm still off work until Monday (yay!) so hopefully next time I will have more crafty things to show you...

For now - it's time to clean, tidy, and go to the supermarket, as I have friends coming round this evening for food and a catch up.  I've made a coffee cake for the occasion, but I'm struggling to make myself do the housework!  (Anyway, you shouldn't have to have an immaculate home for friends - it's not natural!  But I guess I should definitely sort out the food part of the proceedings - it's unfair to starve them, a cake can only go so far...!!)

  1. I am salivating. I love tea scones! And I don't shy away from using butter, jam AND cream. You only live once, right?

    It looks like you had a super romantic mini break. There's just something about fog too ... I love fog. It makes everything so mysterious and romantic. Lucky you ;)

  3. What a lovely break! The castle looks amazing...oh to have seen it when it was first built! And the cream tea, mmmmm - and personally, I'd rather have a friend who baked me a nice cake rather than clean the whole house for my visit, but I do like cake! Chrissie x
