Weekend fun

So it's Bank Holiday weekend!
The weather is being so weird - it is torrential rain in some places and 2 minutes up the road is broad sunshine!
It is proper wet rain - I know you know what I mean! 

On Saturday, I rode Fern while it was dry and then went out with my friend in the afternoon to go to a couple of tack shops and for a cream tea.

We were both very restrained in the tack shops and only bought essentials. The horses don't need any more rugs!!
The doggies got a new toy that has lasted 24 hours. It was a rabbit and now it is just a rabbit skin and the stuffing is all over the lounge!

We headed over to Totnes for a cream tea at Anne of Cleves.
Totnes is the most hippy but lovely town. It is so lively and there is so much to see. They say it is twinned with Narnia!!

Anne of Cleves is the most twee tea room. It is tiny and the staff wear black with little white frilly aprons. The window is full of delicious cakes and we enjoyed our cream tea and watching people going past stop in their tracks and look at the cakes in the window - they are in such a trance they don't realise that you are watching them from inside. It was pretty amusing!!
The cakes and cream tea at Anne of Cleves are well worth trying and I highly recommend them!

Lovely tea room Anne of Cleves

I went to my friend's house this afternoon for her baby's first birthday party. They had an amazing cake for him which was The Hungry Caterpillar. Do you remember that? I loved that book!

The weather was beautiful this afternoon and the view from their house is amazing. It was a lovely afternoon.

Amazing view

Tomorrow's activities will depend on the weather! 

What have you been up to this weekend? What has the weather been like where you are?
