outdoors.



On Sunday, I spent pretty much the entire day outdoors, in one of my favourite areas of Devon. Totnes, Dartington and the surrounding villages are so pretty and friendly, and I sincerely hope I end up living there one day!

In the morning, mum and I got up to sunshine, and headed over to the Totnes Show, which we hadn't been to in years! It's basically an agricultural show, but there's loads more to see and do, including food, crafts, and interesting informative stands like the Time To Change stand, which I spent a long time at.. more on that another day though!

I loved wandering around looking at all the creatures, including my favourite little Evelyn, who has learnt to do a piggy face. We also watched the lovely Matthew & Me atop a windy hill. My thighs turned purple from the cold but it was worth it! (They still need donations for a new van - please help them out!) 






















We went home for a little rest, and then zoomed over to Dartington, where we were volunteering for the Outdoor Film Festival! Such a lovely little setting, and it turned out Matthew was there too. We had a nice little chat about collaborating on some exciting things on the blog!

There was a little buzz in the air, as well as a slight chill, and it was lovely watching people arrive with armfuls of blankets. There was even a couple who set up their own little table and chairs, complete with champagne!

As soon as it was dark enough, the film was on and there was a hush all around. I'd never seen Some Like It Hot before, and I absolutely loved it! So funny, sexy and romantic. It was lovely to see Marilyn Monroe on the big screen, with the eerie moon peeking out of the clouds behind it.

I was very chilly by the end of it, but it was the best day I've had in a long time. I think I'm going to go and watch Batman on Wednesday night! I will just have to remember to take some blankets and a flask of tea :)
