Country Life

I always said I was a city girl. I have worked and lived in Cape Town, Bangkok, Shanghai and London. And then came Jack….

After one year in Hampstead Heath we realised there was not enough balance between the fantastic buzz and energy of the city and the peaceful green space for long walks we so craved.

After a ton of research and spending precious Saturday’s driving to places like Tunbridge Wells, Cambridge, Oxford, Barnes…..we stumbled upon Windsor. Windsor has the incredible and rare combination of having everything you need (M&S, Zara, Boots, Reiss, hair salons, nail bars, snappy-snaps) without being a major city AND huge open green spaces, rolling hills, lush pastures and a village vibe. Not to mention A CASTLE and weekly visits from The Queen.

We have gone ‘native‘ so to speak. We bought a baby carrier, referred to as ‘The Jack-Pack’, hiking shoes (baby blue Merrels) waterproof trousers (OMG!) and Splish-Splash booties for Jack.

Most of Christmas was spent hiking and enjoying the countryside. I love building up an appetite for a big yummy pub lunch. Seeing Jack so engaged with the scenery was brilliant to see. I think past 6 months old the pram is quite restricting and he sleeps because of boredom, so this is the perfect solution.

Beautiful scenery is food for the soul 🙂

I think Jacks first word will be ‘Fin Fin’ – our dogs name! Happy New Year all! xoxox
