nightclubs and donkeys...



After starting my new job almost a month ago, I've been spending my weekends at work, it's part of the parcel when working in retail and it's made me really appreciate the Saturday's and Sunday's when I do have them off - like the weekend just passed. I came home to celebrate one of my best friends 21st birthdays in a true Hereford fashion aka. cheap wine and a visit to the local nightclub.

Feeling a little delicate the next day, I joined my parents and took a stroll across the village to a neighbours house as they were hosting a "donkey tea"- I bet you're thinking "what the bloody hell...". It was all in aid of getting their pet donkeys socialised and an excuse for a little get together for everyone in the village, as it really doesn't happen very often.

The donkey's themselves are gorgeous, so calm and cuddly - I'd love one myself. Both of the lovely animals were rescued and now live a luxurious life in the countryside, after chatting to a lady at the tea she described their home as the "Rolls Royce of Donkey living", acres of land and a roomy shelter for them to sleep in.

A lovely weekend all in all, I'm now preparing myself ready for 4 days of blood, sweat and tears as I'm heading to Reading Festival on Thursday. Wish me luck!

  1. Sounds like the most glorious weekend - a boozy night with friends followed by a neighborhood gathering and donkeys! I'm envious of the donkey cuddles, they look so sweet. The gingerbread donkeys look pretty good too. I hope you have a fab time at Reading xx
