Devon delights

Hello all!

I can't quite believe it's the second week of June already - where did May go??

I've been very lax with writing anything down. Lots of photos and ideas - just no organisation. Bad me :-( It's been a weird few months with friends in hospital, my birthday and a holiday. So let's start with something lovely and a trip we took to Devon.

The West Country is really one of my most favourite places in the world. I'm especially fond of the area around Okehampton and can see a day in the future where I'm living in a Devon cottage surrounded by animals (my other dreams feature Las Vegas - very different!!). We're lucky enough to have family with a holiday home near to Okehampton so it's a beautiful retreat from the mad world

Lots of piccies, but these sum up the holiday for me. The first day we were there the sun shone on us and we ended up very pink (serves me right I guess for leaving suntan lotion at home!). I just think this photo looks like a hot shimmery afternoon

I did start the day off by wearing a fab lace top over this vest, but that was soon discarded - too hot!! So this was my cool and collected look to start the day...

Skirt - Joe Browns @ Simply Be (old - size 20)
Top - Marks and Spencer (old- size 20)
Shoes - Clarks (old) (v.comfy!!)
Glasses - Primark

And I ended up like this...but who cares! It's a Dartmoor pony!

The next few days took a turn for the worst - so a perfect opportunity to unleash my inner geek! The Classic Air Force Museum at Newquay is a perfect place for a wet day.

It even stopped raining - briefly...

All aboard a VC10

Then finally at the end of the week the sun was back! So off we hoped to Exeter for a bit of antique hunting down on the Quay and a visit to the Cathedral. Before we went, a bit of posing :-)

 Top and Jeans - Marks and Spencer (old - size 20 )
Shoes - Sainsburys

I have no idea what I'm doing here - but I saw no ships!

Inside the Cathedral was beautiful. I'm not a very religious person to be honest but I do love a mooch around a church.

And finally, one of the views we woke up to each morning - I wish I was still there now!

Thanks for reading
