Bunking off

Last week Mr D and I ‘Bunked off’ work and took the motorbike for a spin. The plan was to go to Southwold. I began to notice however that we seemed to be going in totally the wrong direction. It’s not as easy as when you’re sitting in the passenger seat of the car and you can just point at road signs saying…ummmmm shouldn’t we have gone that way??’

So not wanting to smack Mr D on the shoulder and break his concentration along the single track country roads, I kept quiet.

This is where we ended up. In a little village of Debenham.

Mr D had seen this little tea shop in the local paper and had decided it would be exactly my kind of place.

He’d be right about that :)

They make the tea pots in the little pottery, (orders were being made for Harrods while we were there) and you can sit and have a cup of tea in the little tea room, with a scone & jam. Yum.

We did then get to Southwold eventually. For those who don’t know, one of these lovely colourful beach huts will set you back 25-30 thousand pounds. Yep you read that right.

No trip to Southwold is complete without a trip to the pier. Please don’t judge the ‘biker chic’

Then of course there is the Light House

As you can see, the clouds found us, but luckily it stayed dry for the journey home :)

Don’t you just love days out?

This week was also a good week for my door matt in the way of treats!! I’ll do a post about them soon! :)

  1. I've seen the Teapot Pottery advertised but we've never been.

    However we were in Southwold today - sunny but chilly and rather busy :)
