Hello and welcome to another feature of my 5 Happy Things. I don’t post these as much as I’d like too, but I’m hoping some routine will come back to my blog soon as things in my life ease!
This week is a real mix in my 5 Happy Things from food to experiences. Dr W and I have been trying to spend more time together after a busy few weeks. We’ve also been celebrating a fair bit after getting some good news (which I’m sure I’ll be allowed to share soon!)
#1 Snowshill Manor
We love our National Trust memberships, we’ve been using them as an excuse to explore more. We’ve visited Barns, ruins and this time the beautiful (and very quirky) Snowshill Manor. Incredible gardens, nestled in beautiful countryside and the most weirdly wonderful house full of amazing collections. Well worth a visit, member or not!
Le Rustique* sent me the most amazing stash of cheese. I’ve baked Camembert Scones so far, as well as Dr W and I inviting friends round for a cheese themed dinner. I forget how good Baked Camembert is, especially with lashings of chutney and bacon bits! We were very satisfied after that! Next up I will be making Brie Parcels, and of course I’ll be sharing the recipe.
#3 Chilli Festival
The other weekend we braved the bank holiday rain for the Chilli Festival at Eastnor Castle. We went with some good friends of ours and enjoyed some ridiculously hot (and tasty) chilli themed food. Dr W and I accidentally bought yet more condiments (our fridge now has 2 shelves pretty packed with condiments) and I had the most incredible burger from Beefy Boys. If you’re Hereford way you need to check out their place.
#4 John Frieda Blonde Hair Care*
The last couple of weeks I’ve been trying out John Frieda Go Blonder*, a shampoo and conditioner combo designed to help lighten your hair but not too harshly. Now the sun is renowned for lightening my blonde hair so it’s hard to say with these sunny days if it’s worked. But I’ve been swimming a lot lately and this has really helped keep my hair from going brassy. The John Frieda Oil Elixir* has been keeping it in wonderful condition as well. If you’re a blonde, I’d definitely recommend these.
Last weekend Dr W and I spent the whole weekend in Worcester, a rather rare occurrence for us at the moment. We made the most of walking round the city, enjoying the sunshine and drinking gin in our favourite pubs. I love Worcester in the sunshine, it really is very picturesque.
