I wouldn’t exactly say I’m an outdoorsy kind of girl, I’m usually the one on a hike that’s wearing Converse. I do think there’s nothing like a bit of fresh air though and I try to make sure the children spend as much time as possible outside. We’re really lucky to live where we do, we’re surrounded by woods to explore and our house backs on to a field which is just picture perfect in the summer. I used to wish I had a photography studio but I’ve come to realise that it’s the nicest backdrop I could possibly have and I have a list of local places that I like to visit. One of my favourite places is Rushmere Country Park. I LOVE this place, there’s so much to see and discover and I love that around each corner is something different. The kids love it here too, they love the little fairy houses and building dens. I think it’s a shame that they can’t play out like we did when we were little so it’s great being able to take them somewhere where they can run riot and really enjoy themselves without me worrying, even if they do end up completely filthy! Apart from rambunctious kids, it’s so calm and quiet. All you can hear is birds and the rustling of the trees and there’s no phone signal so if you really want to escape, it’s the place to go. And they have a cafe that overlooks the woods. What more could a girl want?
