A perfect day

I had one of those perfect days with my best friends on Tuesday when we decided to take a short drive over to Warwick (only 30mins or so away by car) and visit our friend who lives there. Stratford Upon Avon isn’t too far from where I live either where I spent many a summer rowing along the River Avon with friends. Though, I find it much too touristy these days, so Warwick is a good alternative as a historic town. Plus, my friend lives there and it is also the location of one of the UK’s best preserved medieval castle so it improves by tenfold instantly!

It was a gorgeous day and we had so much fun drinking tea at the Thomas Oaken Tea Rooms where everything was served in the same floral china. I felt quite sophisticated!

There are blue doors everywhere in Warwick, including this magnificent one at St Mary’s Church.

Thanks Hannah for the photo!


We popped into the local museum, looking at the huge fossils on display and er despite being in our twenties, we passed some time playing in the children’s corner.


I can never seem to resist taking photos next to giant toys and this Playmobil knight in shining armour certainly didn’t escape me. I guess this shows how short I am as all my friends towered over him!

There are definitely days out with friends that you will always remember fondly and I’m looking forward to more days like these with friends in the Summer.
