If you go down to the woods today..

Deep in the hundred acre wood where Christopher Robin plays,
You'll find the enchanted neighbourhood of Christopher's childhood days.
A donkey named Eeyore is his friend, and Kanga and little Roo.
There's Rabbit and Piglet and there's Owl, but most of all there's Winnie the Pooh.
Playing 'pooh sticks', do you know how to play?
Winne the Pooh and Sally.
Isn't it funny how a bear likes Honey? Buzz! Buzz! Buzz! I wonder why he does?

Hello!
I hope you all know and like Winnie the Pooh! Today me and Sally visited his hometown of 100 Acre Wood (or how he spells it - Aker) in Aldenham Park in Borehamwood. I used to visit this place a lot when I was very little and haven't been back in over 10 years, so it really was a trip down memory lane. If you aren't aware of Winnie the Pooh, he is a lovingly character in a children's book! The 100 Acre Wood was extremely muddy but I thankfully had my new cute Sainsbury's wellies on that cost all of £8! I matched them with this amazing Simply Be spotty top that I had to immediately buy when I saw it online. We did eventually find Winnie the Pooh as he kept hiding from us. We did find Eeyore's, Piglet's, Owl's, Rabbit's, and Roo's hideouts too but this post was already pretty photo-heavy so didn't want to bore you further! Make sure to check out Sally's blogpost of our fun day out too.

  3. I didn't know there was a real place recreating the world of Winnie the Pooh. How sweet! I loved this post. I thought it was so whimsical and playful and nostalgic. What a fun way to channel your childhood!

    1. I think theres more than one place in the UK that is Winnie the Pooh themed, but this is the only one I've been too. Thanks, it was really fun! :D x
