Not going to lie, due to the party, Jen and I were a bit hungover this morning. We decided that Sunday would be a perfect day to go for a drive in the country. We hopped in the car and heading to Petworth. A cute little town with a National Trust house called Petworth House.
We paid to walk the grounds and it was incredible. It went on for ever! And really had the best Ionic Rotunda, we have ever seen. Ok, so if you knew Jen and I, you would know that we find random things funny. So the Ionic Rotunda became a joke for us all day long and probably will for days, weeks and years to come. We were really upset that we missed the Ramble and Roast tour (another joke) so we decided to ramble anyway through the grounds. Saw some deer galavanting through the forest. Had to walk carefully as their droppings were everywhere but really a fantastic estate!

A pub for lunch was next on the agenda at the Welldigger Arms. Such a classic small english pub with your typical english food. I had my first Ploughmans lunch as we sat in the garden’s. George had a roast so we actually did do the Ramble and Roast tour afterall. That stop started what was to be our afternoon pub crawl.
Next was the Parrot in Forest Green. So crazy how these random pubs pop up in the middle of these small country towns. This pub was set on some cricket grounds and had a beautiful big garden to enjoy your beer in.
Last pub was at the Abinger Hatch in Abinger. In the middle of nowhere. Big garden. Loads of people drinking on a Sunday afternoon. I could get used to this.
Tonight we are just relaxing and making some dinner. A big day tomorrow.
