Ladies utility wax jacket, £199, Barbour
First and foremost, I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Easter break, of course its not all about the chocolate and the bank holiday weekend, its about spending time and celebrating with your loved ones...
As some of you may know I am currently in the throws of moving house, which is an absolutely mammoth task to say the least, the amount of dust I have breathed in is mortifying, and some of the old bits and pieces I found tucked away under my bed were interesting to say the least. Believe me, I came across a pair of Nike Airs from 2006, an A4 sheet of paper with notes between me and my best friend from high school, and a lone flip flop which was two sizes too big, and that's not even the half of it!
Anyway, alongside the removals, I did manage to have some fun this weekend. On Saturday I visited Thorp Perrow, near Bedale, North Yorkshire, for a walk around their Arboretum and gardens. Despite the unpredictable weather, it turned out to be a lovely day Easter Egg hunting with my younger sibling's. Easter really isn't complete without an egg hunt...
Following a Sunday carvery at Ramside Hall, Durham- absolutely delicious (if you live nearby you need to visit), we then visited the Durham Botanical gardens. Considering I literally live down the road from the gardens, this was my first visit. I must say I was overwhelmed by the vast gardens, beautiful flowers and plants, they also were holding an Easter egg hunt which proved extremely challenging!
Of course a Spring countryside walk is not complete without a trusty Barbour jacket, I am wearing their classic ladies utility wax jacket which not only is completely waterproof (was definitely essential at the weekend), but the fabric is lightweight enough to be worn in warmer months, but when zipped up really does shield you from the cold. I am also wearing a pair of Barbour Pantone welly boots.
What did you all get up too this weekend? :)
