A Country Weekend Achievement List…


It’s always lovely to take time away from the Big Smoke and find yourself somewhere that is pretty much 50% green and 50% blue… not London’s 50% grey, 50% other. The air is thick and sweet with the smell of summer pollen, a lovely change from the cocktail of cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes. Whilst on my long weekend, which in the end felt far too short, I found myself doing things, seeing things, and being surprised by things, that made my time in the country feel really, well, like the coun’ry
