Art for the masses // Contemporary Art Fair, Esher

Art is one of those things that I sadly can’t say I have much knowledge of. I’ve never been good at it myself, in fact, there’s a long-running joke in my family about a “hook-nosed bird” I attempted to draw for my art homework that looked nothing like a bird. At school, I found myself so envious of anyone who was able to doodle, draw images from their mind’s eye or copy things from sight. Despite me not having much knowledge of the art world, I’ve always found it fascinating and when the Contemporary Arts Fair got in touch to say they were coming to Esher in Surrey I couldn’t wait to hear more about it.

Afternoon Tea at One Aldwych

We have the most incredible Au Pair. When i say we, i mean my mum, for the kids, not me! She loves my siblings and has more patience than anyone i have ever met before in my entire life! She really has become part of the family. But sadly, she is leaving us 😦 we’re all devastated, but its whats best for her.

So to say a proper thank you and goodbye, we all went for Afternoon Tea at One Aldwych. Its one of those British things that she’s wanted to do, but hadn’t had a chance yet.

Easter

Easter Sunday is family day in my house. Which usually means it consists of three things, family, obviously, food and activities. This year we packed up the kiddies and headed out towards Guildford to spend it with my Grandad and his lovely wife Nina. First activity of the day was pitch and putt (not as easy as crazy golf, but easier than a normal course). We arrived at Frimley Lodge Park where we grabbed some clubs and went in search of the 9 hole course.
