I have just returned from the most perfect long weekend in the beautiful Isle of Wight with my boyfriend. If you have been following my blog for a while, you might have heard me talk about visiting the Isle of Wight before. My family has a cottage on the island and we visit from time to time for a nice little country break. We always used to go when I was younger and as we have got older visits are coming fewer and further between. Therefore, when I do manage to go down, I always appreciate it a lot more. This was the first time I have gone down without my family and with just my boyfriend... so feeling like a proper grown up now. The weekend was perfect, full of long country walks, meals in cosy pubs and long nights by the fire.
When we arrived after getting some food shopping in, we walked straight down to the beach to watch the sunset, how romantic! The boy then cooked me his speciality, fajitas (the only meal he can cook) and we spent the night in front of the fire watching Saturday night TV. We also managed to visit lots of little towns and drove over to the other side of the island for some sightseeing. Unfortunately, as it was out of season, most places were completely dead, but it was still nice to wander along the beaches and eat out in cute little cafes. We also managed to squeeze in a trip to the cinema to see the new Hunger Games, as well as a teensy bit of shopping and some yummy meals out. Of course, the weekend involved lots of eating naughty things, and we even manged to make some slutty brownies! I have wanted to make these forever, since seeing them on The Londoners blog, and this was the perfect excuse. My god, did they taste amazing! All in all, it was an ideal trip and a great break from the bustling London life. Have you ever been to the Isle of Wight?
