After week away in Cornwall and a week catching up with washing, ironing and admin not to mention my first ‘Keep in Touch’ day back at work, Rudy and I have spent a few days in our ‘hood’ re-aquainting ourselves 😉
We meandered around Broadway yesterday at a leisurely pace. I managed to get my nails done and a full makeover at Tonic (having only popped in for a chinwag) and then we walked up and down the high street, chatted to people here and there and took some pictures of the sun shining over and onto the village which always makes us (me) smile! I really can kill hours in this place.

I see these buildings almost daily but can’t stop myself snapping another shot of the honey coloured stone that the Cotswolds is so famed for … as one of my Twitter followers commented rather more eloquently than I yesterday ..
Then today we headed over to Chipping Campden to do some little jobs and had a coffee and a pootle around the town. I love Chipping Campden and often think we should move here but then am tempted back by to Broadway and all of it’s own beauty.
I parked next to this groovy set of wheels looking effortlessly cool outside two of the village houses, thrown together in style like a changeable film set which isn’t quite sure of its era!
After chatting at length to the lovely Katie at Frankie Doodle…who’s website encourages you to ‘come and visit our wonderful emporium………. we sell nothing useful ……….” I bought what I consider to be very useful, in fact essential..a new clutch and a bracelet – practically impossible to leave the shop without them in fact …Oooops.
We had coffee at Orchard Layne another gorgeous Aladdin’s Cave of bits and bobs in a a room which seem to never end but leading to a cafe where satisfying refreshment is ensured.
I had two cheese scones, I mean the serving was two, I didn’t ask for two….oink. They were THE BEST cheese scones I have ever had, and I have had a few let me tell you. Its worth noting that we were expertly looked after with super speedy service. As Winter approaches I look forward to spending lots of cosy mornings in here drinking coffee and meeting local friends for lunch! And eating cheese scones.
In the middle of the town we happened upon a garden which I never knew existed and I sat there a while whilst Rudy slept. Next time I’ll head here with my book and a take away coffee perhaps.

But we didn’t stay for long as the skies turned a lovely shade of grey which signalled it was time for us to head home.
We’ll be back soon, if you see us out and about then please say hello! Just shout CotswoldCreate and I will come running 🙂
Ciao for now
