So, I've already done TWO posts about my little mini break to Norbury Manor but I haven't actually TALKED about it, or really done a proper post about it. So, basically pretend like you're watching Memento and this is the first post you are reading about my little trip? Okay? GOOD.
The wonderful Alex got together a bunch of her blogger buddies and arranged for us all to spend a long weekend at a freaking manor house! Norbury is stunning - you can hire it through the National Trust, and oh, you SHOULD. It's got gorgeous grounds and a gorgeous inside and like four thousand bathrooms and did you SEE the rolltop bath? It sleeps 12 (although I think you could squeeze more in) and would be amazing for a hen do.
The Where Are My Knees girls!
Sarah's amazing Super Slutty Brownies
I'm ridiculous. But you knew that.
It was an amazing weekend full of gossip, chickflicks, cake, fun and cake. And more cake. There was a lot of cake. I got to meet some new lovely people as well as some familiar faces and I also had a super beautiful setting for outfit posts!
Gem and I ran out into the garden to snap some pics on the Sunday as I wanted to show off this pretty dress! I got this back in December but it didn't really fit - it's quite gratifying to see how different it looks now (look!). It's all silky and pretty and fancypants and oh so very Lady of the Manor, yeah?
It's lovely but I think Gem's dress might win. Doesn't she look beautiful?
