As you’ll know from my previous post, Ollie and I have been spending more weekends in the South West than usual lately. I feel like being back in the South grounds me, partly due to the slower pace of life and most definitely being closer to nature. After being cooped up inside for our 9-5 jobs all week, just being outside enjoying the sea breeze and sun on our faces felt so good! This day was a pretty special one, it was Mr B’s Birthday, he turned the grand old age of twelve and so my family decided to celebrate with an after dinner picnic on the beach.
If I could picnic every evening during the summer I probably would, even if it is just for dessert. Is there anything better than eating fresh fruit, cheese and in this case cake outdoors, with a glass of champagne?
