Our weekend in pictures - Bridport Vintage Quarter


I must have taken 100 photos this weekend. I am aware that probably only me and Tom would be happy to view quite so many pictures of our little family though so I've tried to narrow it down. That being said 'Our Weekend In Pictures' is going to be split into two posts this week. Easter Sunday was just too lovely to condense any smaller. 

On Saturday we headed out to the Bridport Saturday market which is always a favourite of mine every time we go and visit Tom's home town. My other favourite place being its vintage quarter which I believe is simply the best place for vintage I have been to in the UK. Such a huge collection of homeware/clothes and art at actually affordable prices too! I could buy so so much there but limited myself to a jumper a skirt and a flour shaker. I later bought a home made crocheted blanket from the market stall too. 

We are having such a relaxed holiday here with Tom's mum, I haven't seen Wilf this happy in long time he really is in his element. Maybe its the fact that he has the full attention of both parents and a dotting Granny, the countryside air and a great selection of old toys to play with (or all three) but he has been chatting, laughing, sleeping hours upon hours and eating with gusto! Tom's mum has been baking delicious cakes, yummy meals and supplying tea just at the right time..

..we haven't told Tom's mum yet but we're moving in ;)

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! What did you get up too? Was it a chilled one or did you take a trip away for the Easter break? xx

Is the Vintage quarter in Bridport open daily or is it a 'Saturday' thing?

Kat - Ha! We got home and Tom said he was sad to be home and we contemplated how it would look if a 30 year old moved back to his mum with his child and girlfriend in tow ;) x
