Spring had well and truly sprung this morning, with the sun shining and the High Street bustling with customers.
A short wander into town with the kids in tow, we headed straight to the Paddock to burn off some energy before settling down to a restorative cup of the good stuff (freshly ground of course!) and a delicious bacon sandwich, on the tastiest fresh bread, at The Granary.
After devouring our breakfast, we doubled back to drop off some books at our ever so handy local library and fought our way through the crowds to buy some of Kitty Tait's mouth-watering creations at The Orange Bakery's latest pop-up in The Social (sugary cinnamon buns & donuts - delish!).
Fully laden with baked goods we popped into my husband's favourite shop - Calnan Brothers. With so much variety it's always hard to choose what to buy here, but eventually we settled for some chipolatas, two juicy rib-eyes and a heart-shaped brie!
Final stop at The Undercroft to stock up on veggies and couldn't resist a sunny bunch of daffodils to bring a little of the Spring home.
How lucky we are to be in Watlington!
