spring has sprung


The sun is shining and the temperature has risen... is it too early to say Spring is here?! Well, yesterday definitely felt Spring-like, with my girls (and their fellas) coming to visit us in Farnham, starting with a walk in the sunshine through the park. Jackets and coats were quickly lost as we made the most of the warm rays. Spring, I tell you!

The majority of our afternoon was spent at mine and Rich's new favourite local pub - The Wheatsheaf in Farnham. Having recently been taken over and had a complete facelift, we were so impressed with the transformation! A rags to riches story - think open kitchen, rustic yet modern decor, excellent menu boasting local produce and a relaxing but buzzy environment. The food is reasonably priced (for a Surrey pub!) and great quality; although it isn't the most extensive of menus, I think that reflects their ethos - quality over quantity. Saying that, we definitely tried a range of meals from burgers to risotto and mussels to pork belly. All washed down with a few white wine spritzers... delicious!

Food aside, it was so lovely to get together with (most of) the girls and have a proper catch up, they can end up being few and far between these days! Thank you Mr Sunshine for gracing us with your presence!

Shoutout to Mel and Jase - you were greatly missed! And apologies for the image quality - all snaps taken on my iPhone!
