We've just become members of the National Trust. Mainly because we're holidaying in England this year and there are lots of NT properties where we're going. But it was also a prompt for us to visit some beautiful locations in Northern Ireland (and get our money's worth says Mr SGS armed with his National Trust spreadsheet to ensure we maximise our investment!!)First up, Rowallane Gardens in Saintfield, Co Down...where I wore Neon & Wellies...
|Just like it said on the tin - Neon & Wellies|
Neon Vest - H&M
Jeans - French Connection (old)
Wellies - Karrimor
I layered this little jacket over the vest to tone down the neon a bit! I picked it up in a charity shop in Belfast a few months ago..
I'm as guilty as the next mammy in thinking there's nothing for kids to do in a lovely garden like this but I was reminded today that kids don't need face painters or bouncy castles to have fun. My three never stopped running about having a ball and they were surprisingly interested in the different flowers (they get that from their dad). Add in a few trees to climb and it was pretty much the perfect day out!
If you've a recommendation for a National Trust property near you, please add it to the comments below for everyone to see (and for me to potentially visit!). I'm particularly interested in ones in the Berkshire area and in Cornwall. Thanks girls!!
