The other week Tom and I went to Akamba Garden Centre in Shirley, Solihull. Neither of us had been before but I've heard some good things about the evening entertainment they do. We went thinking it would be somewhere nice to walk around on a Saturday afternoon whilst it was sunny but we didn't expect it to be so, epic.

It was about a 20 minute drive from my house and I can't believe I had never been before or heard more bout it.

It's an African/Caribbean themed garden centre which stocks loads of exotic plants and garden sculptures. You'll see from the photos I took, it was walking through a little jungle.

A couple of weeks ago Tom and I went on a short camping trip to Penkridge. The campsite we went to was at Pillaton Hall Farm and it was a truly beautiful campsite. It has four fishing pools and we chose a pitch which looked over one of the bigger pools, perfect for Tom to spend his days fishing.

We got there on a Thursday and stayed until the Sunday. The Thursday we got there the weather was beautiful, it was so hot and sunny! After putting the tent up and setting up all the 'furniture' Tom did some fishing and I did a BBQ. The rest of the weekend was dull and rainy but that didn't ruin our weekend though, Tom still fished and I still sat under the umbrella next to him reading and taking pictures.
