I haven’t done a weekend in pictures post for a while but I think this weekend really warrants one!
I remember my mum turning 40, that’s probably the first of her birthdays I can really remember. I can’t remember what we did to celebrate but I do remember the occasion and the house being filled with flowers.
For her 60th we organised a surprise birthday party, with all her friends and family. It was a beautiful day and we’d hired a gorgeous countryside venue with rolling hillside views. Thankfully the weather was good to us, which meant we all spent the day outside enjoying the fresh Welsh air and feasting on delicious food and drinks.
This past weekend was my mum’s 65th birthday and again we wanted to organise something a little special to celebrate the big day and show her how much we love and appreciate her. My dad had asked me to organise a surprise weekend away, something relaxing and ideally half way between London and west Wales, where they live.
After much searching, I came across a stunning country house in Ramsbury, Wiltshire on Airbnb. It was beautifully decorated, had more than enough bedrooms and a big kitchen. It was also covered in pink roses and had a stunning big garden for the girls to run around. Basically, it was a ‘chocolate box’ house and I knew it would make the perfect venue!
It’s now Sunday night and we’ve just got back from our weekend away. We didn’t do very much, it was a relaxing weekend spent eating, drinking, watching the football, and running around the garden playing hide and seek.
We went to The Bell at Ramsbury for a lovely meal on Saturday afternoon. They have their own micro brewery and serve really good home cooked food, and made us feel very special. We also did some shopping at nearby Marlborough, which was full of lovely little shops and had a market running down the middle of the high street.
Here is our weekend in pictures…
