Right, I'm going to go back into time.
"Oh goody," you may be thinking. For you may be a lover of time travel and nostalgia.
Perhaps you would like me to whizz this post to the swinging 60's, or the groovy 70's?
Or would you rather go way back into the last century, where the world was an entirely different place?
Your era preference may be long ago England. When horses replaced motor cars, the poor were very poor and the wealthy dressed to impress, with servants at their side.
Well I hate to disappoint you, if the above was indeed what you had in mind.
I'm going back to...last month. The merry month of December. My mother's birthday weekend to be precise. We visited the Cotswolds and I have yet to write about it.
Mark and I decided to treat my mum, and dad (and ourselves in the process!) to a night at cosy guest house in a beautiful part of the country. We wanted her to know how much we appreciate all she does for us and Tommy.
And we knew just the place.
The Olive Branch.
Situated in the charming village of Broadway.
After browsing around the village, we visited its neighbour, Burlington. And stopped for a hot chocolate and toasted tea cake.
We stocked up on Christmas presents.
Admired the quaint shops.
Tommy had great fun walking with daddy.
Then we headed back to our room, to freshen up for dinner.
Dinner was at local country pub.
Tommy couldn't decide whether to have fish fingers or sausages.
I had burger and chips.
After a very enjoyable night, we retired to our rooms to watch telly in bed. Until our alarms reminded us it was time for breakfast. In adorable breakfast room.
What a glorious start to the day.
Then off we popped to Burton-on-the-water, another pretty village. We fed the ducks and ambled around until it was time to say goodbye to the Cotswolds. Hopefully we will come back soon.
