Home For The Weekend

Ventnor beach isle of wight

Ugggggggh I can’t tell ya how nice it was to be home last weekend.

We escaped London on a rainy Friday eve and woke up in my cloud of a bed on the sunny Isle of Wight the next morning.

One of my goals this year was to make the effort to visit home far more often. The ting is, it is just SO darn expensive to get to the Isle of Wight. When pennies are tight, I just can’t justify the dollar. BUT when we can, it is so worth it. It is so worth seeing my family, having the seaside on my doorstep, bumping into old school friends.

I took a few cheeky snaps over the weekend, so I thought I would pop them up on here, just y’know for the memories.

I took a few photos of my gaff, here’s my pop’s art studio. One of my favourite corners of the house! ?

On Saturday morning, we mooched down to the beach for coffee at my favourite Del Cafe.  Such a beaut lil cafe with the most incredible views and BEAUTIFUL DOGS. <3

Then it was time for the pub to watch Liverpool play. GF duties and all. They lost 5-0 oooopsie!

Matt and I then strolled back to the beach for a lunch of fish & chips (gotta be done hehe). We were the only two people (except for the 123901 seagulls) V romantic indeed.

… Via the most dreamy bakery. Look at these dreamy Mr. Blobby biscuits…

We popped back home to snooze on our new sofa (SO in love) before our chums Ellen & Max picked us up for a road trip over to Ventnor. If you ever visit the Isle of Wight, you HAVE to visit this spot, so so beautiful, just look at daaat…

We had a bite to eat at The Met Bar, which FYI – never visit! We had such a shoddy experience there which is a massive shame because it used to be amaaaazing. Instead, head to the Spyglass Inn, arguably the best pub on the Island!

We headed back to Ryde (cheeky pit stop in Tesco for G&T) then after a few pre dranks, headed into Ryde town and chinwagged to old school pals until the early hours.

Matt and I slept in till 1PM (:O) then snuggled on the sofa whilst my wonderful pops whipped up a roast.

PERF ?

How was your weekend chum?

    • Aaaah it really is a lovely place to call home… Although I wish it wasn’t such a lil betch to get to lol! Wightlink is the ferry company and it is SO expensive. It is such a small stretch of water (takes 15 mins to cross) but costs £25 pounds to cross… craaazy! I wish I just invested in my own canoe or summin’ aha! Immy x

    • Ah thank you Charlotte :) Was so wonderful! You would love it, perhaps one weekend next summer? Off to Winchester this weekend… I am making a habit of leaving London ‘erry weekend! Immy x

  • Sounds lovely. I remember living in London and it always being so expensive to travel home to Devon. I think companies should do discount for locals/people travelling home! :P
