Our Weekend in Pictures / Frome

visiting frome, 
First of all I want to apologise yet again for the lack of posts over here. Broken record I know but when life gets busy this little space seems to be the one that gets neglected the most. I guess everyone knows people are reading blogs less and less BUT I do still love dipping in and out of my favourites and recording our lived over here. It was always from the start a place for us to capture moments and memories and so with the rise of IG and the micro blogging it sort of feels like the longer blog post is one that will happen less and less but probably in many ways be more long lasting. At least for us as a family to look back on.

Anyway totally rambling over here. I pretty much have about two months of things to catch you up on, whoops! So I'll start in no particular order, or rather the events that happened the most recently whilst they are close in my mind.

Last weekend we took a trip to Frome for the first time. It's only an hour on the train so I'm not sure why it's taken us ten years to make the trip but we fell in love hard! I don't think I've ever visited a place before that I could genuinely see ourselves living over Bristol (even with our potential move to Cardiff it never felt fully right in our hearts). We are so happy in our new house and staying in Bristol for now but maybe the country life will call us by the time we are in our mid 40's and the kids have left home. I can really see myself pottering about all the beautiful indie shops and cafes without having to worry about schools or whatever else comes with having young kids. Never say never!

We stayed in this Airbnb which is a converted Post Office which we loved.

I think every single street we walked down was an independent which was amazing

By the way if you have a child aged around Wilf's age (almost 7) then check out this IG post. I asked for book recommendations and there were so many good ones and ones I'd never heard of!

Always bringing the awkward..

One of the places we popped into was Rye Bakery which was the most beautiful bakery set in an old church, really great space for kids too as they had a children's corner so I'd defo recommend that if you visit with the fam.

Could have spent so much money in Sister's Guild. Didn't. Regret it

And that was last weekend! Bare with my whilst I recap on some other posts over the next week or so!

P.S other recommendations for Frome were The Garden Cafe. We only got a cake there but would love to go back for proper lunch as the food looked so good and as we sat outisde it was also really chilled with the kids.

We actually ate in the Lounge which I know is a sort of local chain and is often a bit mixed but we knew they would have food the kids could eat and actually we really liked this one.

I didn't get to do any vintage shopping as Mabli was being a bit wild but I defo will be back to take advantage of that sometime as there were lots of good ones.

Anyone live in Frome or have any recommendations for next time we visit?
