PLACES TO VISIT: RICHMOND UPON THAMES

 Not sure if i'm going to make this a regular post on my blog now but I thought i would write about where I have been this weekend. As I mentioned in my previous post for me it's really important to make the most of my weekends now that I am working full time - and I also feel with the longer days and nicer weather, it's definitely time to get out and explore.

So today we took a drive over to Richmond - if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that when we arrived, I then realised there was no access for any vehicles today in Richmond Park where we normally leave the car. This did mean we found somewhere to leave the car for free and go for an extra long walk through Richmond park and into the town.

 Richmond is probably another real favourite place of mine, myself and James go quite a lot throughout the summer months - especially as it's not too far for us too drive to. Today we walked into town, looked around the shops and got a late lunch in a cute little cafe - unfortunately I don't know the name of the place and for once I didn't even take a picture of my food! Can I even call myself a blogger!? 

 We did also have a drink in the Slug and Lettuce by the river. On our walk back we found this little square which has a weekend market - this was a really cute corner to stumble across. The name of the market I believe was Duck Pond market, in Herron square? 



 A fairly short and simple post today but wanted to share what I have been up to this weekend - also in total we've ended today on 16,736 steps, which is 6,87 miles.

We've also just had Ladies Day and Derby Day at Epsom Downs this weekend, so the past couple of days I have spent enjoying the races with friends and family.
