Lee's bike it turned out would cost us £80 after the £50 service. That seemed fine, we were expecting it to be more and we've decided to invest that money in it with the view of buying a new (secondhand) bike for Lee in a couple of years if we need to. This one came out of a skip originally! My uncle rescued it.
We dropped the bikes at home and then completely neglected to feed the kittens any lunch before heading out ourselves for lunch at Cannon Hall. I really wanted to get out a little bit so I thought we'd chance it. I was expecting the cafe to be heaving as it usually is on a weekend, but instead there were plenty of tables and we walked straight in. The menu isn't huge but there were a few veggie options. I went for a crispy halloumi club sandwich that had beetroot hummus in it too. It was so delicious! Lee had a chicken baguette that he said was nice.
Afterwards I really wanted a whippy ice cream from the ice cream van that is usually in the car park, but it wasn't there! Disappointing. We drove up to the top of the park in case there was an ice cream van up there, but there wasn't. But there is an ice cream parlour up there, so Lee went in for ice creams and I went to get a picnic table outside on the grass. Again, I was expecting it to be busy and it wasn't. It was the day before Father's Day though so maybe everyone was planning to go then instead.
I had chococolate and bubblegum ice creams which were both delicious. It was nice to sit in the sunshine and we did the same when we got home, too, in the garden with the kittens. They love it, they like to explore and eat grass and sunbathe.
I was wearing this Sprinkle of Glitter dress which is one of my favourites, I say this every time I wear it but I do! It's comfy and pretty and I like it with leggings and sandals. I was wearing these new sandals that I got last year in the Dorothy Perkins sale, but I barely had chance to wear them. I've worn them loads this week already! Perfect to slip on and off.
It was a lovely day - I'm glad we got outside and had a bit of sunshine while it wasn't raining!
I love pomegranate San Pellegrino and was excited when it was on the menu!

Oh and very excitingly we put up the bee hotel I bought months ago. I just hope we get some bees in it now!
