bluebells to the rescue

15 May 2012


We are having a tough old time of it at the moment, lots of stress and headaches to sort out which is getting us both down : ( 

BUT, It was great to win a nice pressie on Ebay, and have the excuse of a days excursion to beautiful Sussex countryside to collect it!
I am now half way to having our babe pop out, still a bit early to be buying baby stuffs admittedly, but we have won a lovely little cot for our tiny flat. It has been used by the owner for all her previous tots so it lovely to have a cot with happy memories already attached. I'm sure our babe will be nice and comfy in it. Photos of it will follow shortly.

Anyways, after collecting it, we drove past a Steam train station and decided to go for a ride.
It was quite amazing that so many people dedicate their time to keeping these old trains and stations alive. The whole trip was quite hilarious, but we didn't see many bluebells as promised, but it was lovely none the less.

After the exhausting train ride and browse around Lewes antique shops, we looked for a country layby in which to have a sneaky nap in the car. We stopped by a dull looking woods and decided to venture in. After a few minutes walking we notice a blue-ish haze in the distance...which opened out to the most glorious bluebell woods I have ever seen. The smell was incredible. What a treat, we'd given up all hope of seeing the bluebells this year.

The woods came out onto a clearing with a tiny stream flowing around an oak tree. Little rabbits all around. Whilst strolling and admiring the English scenery, suddenly my entire leg disappeared down a rabbit hole.

I was laughing so hard I though I might have brought on early labour!

So, even though our ongoing drama with estate agents {ahem ahem, Pedder on Lordship Lane, tutt tutt!} continues, and we are still unable to unpacked after three weeks since moving into our new place...I'm always rescued by... some simple pleasures of life.
