A Sunny Saturday in Buxton....

Yesterday was by far the warmest and sunniest day of the year so far so we decided to make the most of it by jumping into the car and getting out into Derbyshire. We stopped by one of our favourite garden centres  for lunch on our way out as they serve the most delicious food (and cake!). I opted for a simple homemade spicy butternut squash soup complete with a pile of sandwiches and followed it with the most gorgeous dandelion and burdock cake. I forgot to take photos of my food because it was quickly devoured but it was so, so good! 

Afterwards we spent the afternoon having a wander round Buxton where we did a spot of charity shop shopping and had a walk round the park. Elsie loved sitting in the sunshine watching the ducks in the pond and people loved making a fuss of her in her new diamante studded collar and harness that we got her for her birthday! She looks so cute at the moment, doesn't she?! 

I hope you have all had a lovely sunny weekend! x
