I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

The Plough

A traditional pub/restaurant in Ivy Hatch, near Ightam, Kent.

It was a Thursday evening and there was only us and an elderly couple eating at The Plough throughout the whole evening. Perhaps it was more quiet than normal because it was election day. Anyway, it is a lovely looking pub and restaurant and we could have chosen to sit by the log fire or in the conservatory, so we went in the conservatory where we could see all the flowers outside. I loved the extra touches like the fact that the flowers in the vases were real, and there were burning candles all round the room; it was really pretty.
The menu had a good selection to choose from; though Chris’s steak portion was a bit small. I had duck in a plum sauce and it was delicious – I really enjoyed it. It is not a family restaurant though – there was no kid’s menu. Though they were given a generous portion of Sausages and mash from the lunch menu and only charged half price for it. There’s also no playground or garden to play in or anything like that.
It also turned out to be quite pricy. Although my duck was £10, which was quite reasonable, I had to pay an extra £1.50 for the vegetables (bit of a cheek I think) and the puddings were £4.50 each – not even a cheaper price for the ice-cream option. But if you’ve got the money to spend, for adults this would be a very nice place to eat.

Eating out, Food,

Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
