30!

BlogEmily Rollings

This weekend we celebrated my 30th birthday in a beautiful barn in Sussex. Alongside my family and closest friends the weekend was made up of walks, board games, cosy pubs and a lot of very delicious food. Tagents Barn in Sussex is the best entertaining house. Although a lot of the bedrooms are on the mezzanine floor overlooking the main space and therefore privacy isn't at a premium we lived by a code of #nowalls, which kind of works with your nearest and dearest. The main kitchen, dining and living space are all adjoined with incredible floor to ceiling windows either side of the barn, overlooking the South Downs. There isn't another house in sight and you feel truly away from it all.

Everyone pitched in to cook a five course meal, including a Leon leg of lamb recipe that I have been dying to try for years. My sister baked a delicious coconut cake, adorned with white icing and gold glitter. In case you haven't spotted there was a white and gold theme running through the evening, as you may know I love gold!

We ended the weekend with some Christmas tree shopping. A perfect end to a perfect weekend.
