A Wedding at Westonbirt

Wow - what a weekend!  Last weekend we were lucky enough to attend one of the best weddings I've ever been to.  A combination of beautiful locations, wonderful people, amazing food and being there to share a special moment where two people and two families come together made it a weekend not to be forgotten!

We set off on a dreary and drizzly Saturday morning, down the M25, off along the M4 then down an "A" road lined with very old looking walls made from the cotswold stone you see everywhere in the area.  All of a sudden we came upon our hotel, Bodkin House Hotel, but weren't sure if it was the right place or not.  We pulled into the car park and both went for our phones to look it up online but alas - no reception!  The no reception thing was a solid theme throughout the weekend and after a few hours I just stopped checking my phone and actually quite enjoyed it!

I want to talk to you about beetroots.  They can be a bit scary, I know, I only ventured as far as pickled ones up until this year…they look a bit funny with their sprouty bits and roots, their skin doesn't look too appealing and if you get past this, the insides make your chopping board look like a crime scene because the colour is so intense!  You know what though?  They're really not scary.  I've grown to love them massively over the past few months and not a week goes by without me eating them in some shape or form.

Zero Juice & Sushi, Berkhamsted

Zero sushi and juice - right in the centre of Berkhamsted!  They offer excellent quality sushi and fresh juice using the best quality ingredients

There are times (read: most of the time) when I get excited about food - you might have noticed this if you've seen any of my other posts…

A couple of weeks ago I got REALLY excited about food because I found out that something new was coming to town - Zero , a sushi and fresh juice shop.  Sushi!  A five minute walk from my house!

Berkhamsted caters for pretty much every type of food but the one thing it's been lacking is sushi and from the moment I heard about Zero I knew it would go down a treat

Photo a Day: October

We just did the second to last "pinch, punch, first of the month" because it's now November!  Where has the year gone?!

October is one of my favourite months - summer is well and truly over, the temperature is lowering (although not that much so far!), leaves are various shades of red and gold, the air is scented with wood smoked from neighbour's fireplaces and it's the best time of year to get the blankets and scarves out!
