White Cotton Peonies

Hello, you gorgeous fillies you!

On Sunday, myself and the boy’s family managed to enjoy one of our favourite past times, chilling in the sun at the polo. We’re members of Guards Polo and whilst the season starts in April, I’m very much a fair weather supporter and so often this means that I don’t enjoy my first match until June, making the season feel rather short!

It was the first time that I’d tried the Sunday Roast Buffet (I can definitely vouch for the bar menu which is delicious) but the salmon and minted peas that I had (amongst many other things) were delish. The winner hands down were their desserts though – so many amazing ones to try. I managed to pick my way through a load of them before passing them over to be devoured by Dickie. An expandable waistband is definitely advised.DSC_0106

I took a few minutes out to go to visit the gorgeous ponies in their paddocks. Their coats are so glossy and they’re always well groomed, leaving me walking away with serious hair envy.

What’s your favourite thing to do on a Sunday? Do you have a favourite spot?
