On Wednesday I met up with my parents at The Crown in Henlow, a lovely country pub, for lunch. I was very taken with the recycled pallets shelves…. food was lovely too. Thanks Mum & Dad!
Today I had the urge to go to G Dad’s Collectables in Old Wolverton… it’s one of my favourite places for a good rummage for vintage and retro goodies. They have everything from figurines, jewellery, cutlery, crockery, clothes, old toys and books. I love it. They also have a cute little 1940s inspired tea room for a cream tea after you’ve had a good look around.
I always come home with something from there and today was no different, I purchased two very cute cake stands.

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning, catching up with a good friend and testing out a cute coffee shop in the village.
I walk past Woburn Coffee House every time I walk into the village and every time the selection cute vintage tea cups and cake stands in the window draw my attention. I’ve wanted to go in there for ages now, so when I arrange to meet up with my lovely friend Amanda for morning coffee, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check it out.
It was beautiful inside, so many pretty things for us to look at as well as the gorgeous looking cakes. We ordered a cream tea, coffee and a croque monsieur. The food was as beautiful as the place and all freshly made and really tasted. We were made very welcome by the friendly, chatty staff… so glad we chose to go there.
The perfect Saturday morning.
Tuesday night I was treated to dinner and a movie. We discovered that Pizza Express do the most yummy salads. I had Warm Vegetables with Goats Cheese and James had the Bosco… amazing.
We then went to watch Looper, good film, really different story of time travel, very harsh plot and a couple of disturbing scenes. But worth watching… glad we ate first!
