Since Christmas we have been so focused on switching all of our bedrooms around that it seems like we’ve spent every weekend knee deep in utter chaos at home! Last weekend I just couldn’t face anymore sorting so we took a much needed break from it all. Josh had to work all day on Saturday so Bella and I had lunch and spent the afternoon swimming with my sister and niece. It was so lovely to see them both and Bella had so much fun swimming and hasn’t stopped talking about it since! I’m really keen to get her enrolled in some swimming lessons at some point this year but in the meantime I’m going to try and take her myself a couple of times a month to help her confidence in the water!
As Sunday was our only day all together we decided to brave the cold frosty weather and popped out for brunch and a walk to blow away the cobwebs. I had a real craving for poached eggs so we headed to The Hub at Quarry Farm after hearing such wonderful things about the food. Oh boy, we were not disappointed! Josh and I both ordered Eggs Benedict and it was absolutely delicious as was the coffee according to Josh. We both loved the decor of The Hub too, it was so lovely and cosy with the fire roaring, the perfect place to spend a chilly Sunday morning. I can definitely see us becoming regulars!
The Hub is literally a stones throw away from Bodiam Castle. you could even see the castle as we were driving out! Bodiam Castle was actually fairly busy despite how cold it was. We had a leisurely stroll around the frozen moat watching the ducks potter about on the ice which Bella found hilarious! Afterwards we then headed into the castle. I have taken Bella previously, although it was probably this time last year and she wasn’t particularly interested at all. But this time she really enjoyed exploring and was climbing all the steps, looking out of all the windows and asking loads of questions. We had a lovely time and we both said how we really must visit more often as we live so close!
