I have read The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, and while it is an excellent book it did not actually prepare me in any way for the real genuine country lifestyle. And Farlows, where I visited last week, is a real genuine country store.
I did enjoy looking round the store - I definitely understand the appeal of barbour, tweed and jumpers with animals on them, even if I've never been within a country mile of, well the real countryside (ok that's a lie, I went on holiday to Wales once), or even a conveniently muddy festival.
Farlows gave me the chance to dress up and play Lady of the Manor for the evening which was great fun, and if you'd like to see the results of all the bloggers who visited check out the Farlows facebook page. For now though you tell me - are you a country Lady? And do you think I could pass?!
