Birthday weekender – Foxhills!

In my very fragile state i clambered out of bed and packed my overnight bag, making sure i remembered my swim stuff, gym stuff and a fancy outfit for dinner! We jumped in the car and after making a quick pitstop for recovery snacks made the quick 15min drive over to the AMAZING Foxhills!

This place is just STUNNING!!!!! As you pull in through the huge gates you quickly get your first glimpse of the manor house between the tree lined drive way.

My best friends birthday!

I have this best friend Kevin. She’s small and very funny! Last week it was her birthday. (Her name’s not really Kevin by the way! That’s just what i call her! Her “real” name is Olivia)

More Easter activities!

All day Easter Sunday, i kept forgetting i had the Monday off work too! It was such a lovely surprise when i kept remembering! However because of this i hadn’t really made any plans. Thankfully my mum was up bright and early and found a great fate style event that was on over in Guildford. So, what with the beautiful weather, we all grabbed our sunnies and jumped in the car.

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.

Birthday celebrations and lunch at Jackson and Rye

As i mentioned before, last week was my lovely friend Chloe’s birthday. So on Saturday we headed to Richmond for afternoon tea, or at least that was the plan. The birthday girl, my self, Simona, Sarah and baby Ivy all trotted up to the Tea Box, only to very quickly be turned away as they had no space. We were all a little disappointed but didn’t let it dampen our spirits, we were celebrating after all, one crumby little tea room wouldn’t ruin our day! So we headed to the river in search of somewhere warm and cosy for a late lunch instead. Sarah spotted Jackson and Rye which set just a little bit back from the river and we all decided this was a great choice.

The Greedy Elephant

So a couple of years back i went to Thailand. I LOVED IT. Its safe to say its probably one of my favorite countries. I love the food, i love the people, i love the beaches, i love it all! So when i returned home i was somewhat depressed and yearning for a Thai red curry! Not long after i got home the Greedy Elephant opened up in Weybridge. Its safe to say i was dubious. I had just returned from the real thing, this was never going to match up…..it would only be a disappointment, surely. But my NEED for Thai food kept on growing so i decided to give it a chance. I’ve loved it ever since!

Tree House!

Tonight was family dinner, so we headed to a fairly new place in Weybridge called The Tree House. Its been open a little while now, and its safe to say, the location could be classed as somewhat doomed! Every restaurant that has been there before it hasn’t lasted long. Its hard to say what the reason could be. Most of the ones before it were chains so that could be why, but theres also no parking which for families is always a big no no! However, so far, The Tree House seems to be doing well.
