Our Special Lunches

Our Special Lunches

The last week in our old house and first few weeks in our new house were kind of crazy at lunch times. I usually go home for lunch as I only work a few minutes from home. But due to all the packing and unpacking chaos, we decided to spend our lunches in a local cafe we recently discovered. Our local cafe is full of locally produced chutneys and jams and stocks the famous Olive Et Al products, which are made locally to us. I’d much rather support a local independent cafe than a large chain, which charges you an extortionate amount of money. Don’t get me wrong, I love a Costa Hot Chocolate, but there is just something feel good about popping to your local cafe for a toasted sandwich and trying some olives whilst you’re there.

Our little cafe only has two tables for customers to eat at, so I always have to whisper secretly to the Universe as I wander up the hill. We’ve only missed out on a table a couple of times, which is incredibly lucky. We’ve visited so many times now that our little man knows the routine, we arrive, pop his travel highchair on a seat and order our lunch. We are able to order 2 tuna baguettes, a toasted cheese sandwich, 2 drinks, a packet of crisps and a large slice of homemade chocolate fudge cake and get change from £10. Where can you go in the UK for those prices? Not many places, that’s for sure.

Last week everything in our world was a little crazy. Even though we were able to eat lunch at home as we’d settled in, we decided to make the most of some family time at our favourite eating spot. I love watching my two favourite people when they are close to each other. They have this incredible bond and fill my heart with so much love. I captured this picture of our ordinary moment on the way back to the car. M was all cosy in his Babasling whilst C was snuggling into him to keep him warm. I love them both ever so much.

    That sounds like a wonderful place to have lunch – I’m a little jealous of the olives – and a lovely snuggly photo – I love wearing my girls in the sling, you can give them so many more kisses and cuddles!

    I love having J in the sling, I am just awaiting my new one so we are without at the moment and I’m getting withdrawal symptoms, makes me want to cry to think about when he’s too old. That’s a really lovely photo x

    I think it’s wonderful that you have lunchtimes together. Your local cafe sounds wonderful, shame you can’t reserve a table everyday ;-) x
