Campfire Breakfasts

We woke early the next morning.

Having let the fire go out the hut was freezing! Nice and warm under the duvet with Custard wriggled in between us, flat on his back, paws in the air, quietly growling in his sleep, but the hut was so cold you could see your breath.

Leaving the somewhat useless men in bed I hopped out, pulled on boots and a jumper and got the stove going again. Popped a kettle on top and poked my head outside.

Our little meadow was ablaze.

As the fire crackled away and warmed up our Wriggly Tin, I sat and watched the mists rolling in over the woods.

Frosty Morning

The crisp, frosted ground was too much to resist.

We got wrapped up and went for a pre-breakfast walk.

Classic chestnut UGG boots

And a much needed leg stretch!

Cosy outfits for fall

Snugg as a bugg in fresh fresh UGG boots and gloves!

Having worked with them on their Luxe boots earlier this Autumn, I just couldn’t resist a pair of their classic chestnuts.

There’s something so wonderfully appealing about a girl in skinny jeans and a beautiful pair of classics.

Jeans tucked into cosy, soft shearling. It’s one of my favourite casual fashion silhouettes.

Worn with the self assured feeling that  she’ll be warm and comfy all day.

Twinning!

By the time we got back from our frosty walk, the hut was positively tropical!

The Mr lay the campfire, and I laid the table for breakfast.

Keep going until you have a thick, smooth batter.

If it’s not going runny, add a little more milk and try again.

Place on one side until you’re ready.

campfire bacon

We fried up the bacon from a farm nearby, with sausages already sizzling away.

Our smoke and that of our neighbours drifted across the clearing, mingling with the sitting mist.

We drank many a bucket of tea, keeping the mugs warm at the edge of the fire.

Once the bacon was nice and crisp, the sausages well and truly cooked through, we started on the pancake stacks.

Pop a little butter into a hot pan, and pour in your mix.

And when you’ve made as many as you think you can, drizzle in the good stuff.

As we ate happily, the sun came up over the treetops, turning the view from shades of grey into glorious technicolour.

Autumn in England

Totally stuffed, we took Custard for a walk through the newly glowing woods.
