With the lighter evenings and mild temperatures, lately I’ve been enjoying spending my evenings exploring new hobbies and activities, rather than simply relying on the television for entertainment. As part of MoneySuperMarket’s Big Night In, I was challenged to blog about my perfect night in. The recent warm weather has given me a rare opportunity to enjoy the garden, so I planned to spend my evening outside, where it’s so peaceful and serene. With the budget I was given, I purchased a beautiful Steepletone Retro Radio and a white wicker picnic basket to make my evening outdoors complete. I adore the retro radio. Not only is the design lovely, it’s portable which makes it the perfect picnic accessory. So this is how I spent my night in – sitting amongst roses with music playing gently in the background and enjoying a hearty slice of strawberry pavlova with tea in vintage china whilst flicking through Country Living magazine. Simple pleasures are often the best.
