Outfit post

This little photo was taken by my boyfriend last night after we started watching series 2 of Game of Thrones (how amazing is it though?!!!). The dress was purchased second hand via ebay around Christmas time, I originally purchased it in 2010, but it shrank in the wash! Will be careful with it this time however, hand-wash all the way.

black smock - topshop via ebay (£4)
black tube skirt - h&m (£3.99) - this is worn underneath the dress as it is very short!

We are off to the lovely city of Cambridge on Saturday, expect another picture overload ;).

Berkhamsted Castle

Back in May, we travelled to Hertfordshire to visit Berkhamsted's Norman motte-and-bailey castle.

Originally a motte-and-bailey then, this was thrown up after the battle of Hastings in order to monitor the route from the Midlands to London - serving as a strategic fortification for William I. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, mentions Berkhamsted as the place where the archbishop of York, Edgar aetheling, earl Edwin and earl Morcar, surrendered to William (they probably didn't have any choice):

'He (William) went up with all the army that was left to him, and those who had since come over the sea, and ravaged all the parts he went over, until he came to Berkhamsted. There he was met by archbishop Aldred, child Edgar, eorl Edwin, eorl Morkere and all the best men of London'

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…


We now have a cat, named Bella!

She's absolutely lovely and is settling in well. Best decision we've ever made.

My next post will be about Orford Castle, where we're heading to on Thursday. Hope the weather stays nice!
