On Saturday we decided to visit Nunney Castle, as Harry has been doing a project about castles at school. What a lovely little place Nunney is!
We looked round the ruins, which are small, but surrounded by a gorgeous little moat. We ate a picnic by the river, and then had a drink at The George Pub.
It was really nice, as the dogs were welcome in the beer garden , and the kids played hide and seek with some other visitors. We also popped into the lovely church, and fed the ducks. We went by car, but it's possible to catch the 162 towards Frome.
Temperatures soared, and the sun came out just in time for Collett Park cafe's Music in the park on Sunday. It was a perfect family afternoon, with live music from 'Undercover', 50p ice-creams for under 10's, and a bouncy castle for only £2 per 5 minutes.
For the grown -ups there was Thatcher's on offer, jugs of summer punch and wine, but I chose to drink a locally produced 7.5% cider made by Downside Cider & Perry for £3.50 a pint. This may explain why I was a bit worse for wear later in the day,my apologise for the twerking! You can buy this delicious and lethal tipple from Sante Wines in Wells, and The Cider Barn at Draycott.
Apart from the cider, I'm still on a health kick, and trying to get down to Revolution gym as much as possible. I'm loving it.
