Yesterday I met Lorna in Camberley (Surrey) for a spot of shopping and lunch - this is becoming a fairly regular affair, which proves more and more dangerous for my bank account each time! We decided to try out new restaurant Wildwood on Park Street, just outside the Atrium. Wildwood is a chain of grill-type restaurants, serving up burgers, pasta, risotto, fish, salads... the list goes on. Naturally, I went for the classic burger - Cajun mayonnaise, gerkins, fries... topped with a cheeky slice of melted brie. Obviously. The burger was so delicious! These days I'm not a big fan of the gourmet burger; I much prefer a sloppy, greasy slider, but this really hit the spot. Super tasty, juicy and cooked perfectly. 

The restaurant has been styled to perfection; farmhouse style tables with brightly coloured and mismatched chairs, well spaced in the huge open space. The whole place feels really open, without looking sparse. Even the loo's were immaculately decorated with William Morris-esque wallpaper, just gorgeous. They even have an entire room for children to play in  which looked all kinds of fun - chalkboard walls, ball pits, the lot. Lorna and I really had to restrain ourselves! As we were leaving we saw kids queuing up for free sticks of candy-floss, again, we had to hold ourselves back! 

I was really impressed by Wildwood and definitely will be going back soon. Next on my 'to-eat' list? Baked brie, wild mushroom risotto and a divine sounding Eton mess. I don't think my next visit will be far away!

Last Saturday was spent doing something I really love - eating. Rich and I, with a couple of friends, trotted into town to the yearly Farnham Food Festival. Last year we were served up Brazilian fejioada amongst other delights - this year, chicken pea curry and butter chicken from an authentic local curry house. Delicious. We also tasted some pretty delicious Thai food, a ridiculously large chocolate twist, bacon rolls from one of our favourite local pubs, garlic turkey sausages (yes, they are a thing!) and the most creamy goats cheese. Granted, I felt pretty obese afterwards and am still working off those calories, but it was a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Short and sweet from me today - some new boots to swoon over. A bargain at £29.99 from Missguided and perfect for this in-betweeny weather. Is it warm? Is it cold? Is it going to rain? I don't know, but I do know that these boots will hit the spot whichever way it goes.
