Weekend Away...

Whilst yesterday may have been back to the normal work, life routine the weekend had at least been a fabulous one.


It amazes me how refreshed you can feel after such a short time.


And whilst the weather was a little chilly we had a great time just the same.







Not only did we stumble across the most stunning views but we also visited Lyme Park and had a great day with the inlaws.


Roll on the next break.
(Thankfully its only a few weeks away)

Casual Sunday....

Sunday, the day for relaxing and catching your breath before all the madness starts again.
This Sunday we are away relaxing (I hope).
So I shall share last Sundays outfit with you instead.


Whilst Andy and his work colleagues yompt up Snowdon I relaxed doing a little crafting and sorting out wardrobes and cupboards.
Exciting stuff I know.


Unable to spend the time outside as it was bucketing down.
(I'm hoping this Sunday is sunny and bright?!)


Hope you guys have had a good weekend what ever you have been up to.
And don't forget to enter my giveaway.

Only On Holiday....

I don't know about you but I totally relax when I go away.


No one knows me and I have no commitments other than having a great time.
But I do tend to make a few faux pars.
No where else would I wear this get up!


Lets be honest I need a little extra fabric & support for these boobs!
Oh well, least said, sooner mended.
These were taken whilst visiting one of the beautiful Chateau's in the Loire Valley.
The gardens had a festival on which was very pretty to see.


Our favourite had to be the mist gardens, but this had more to do with us being hot rather than anything else!

That said it did make for very atmospheric photos.

So Much To Do & So Little Time To Do It In...

We are off for a weekend away afterwork and I'm ashamed to say I am so far behind in getting ready that I'm meeting myself going forward (silly phrase but I'm sure you know what I mean)

This is our destination:


Chatsworth House
Not that we are staying in this beautiful house, but in our home from home caravan.
We stayed here last year and enjoyed it so much we just knew we would have to revisit.
You even get a key to a secret gate to let you in and out of the grounds.

Wednesdays outfit
Dress - H&M
Shoes - Debenhams

Thankfully not a lot of packing needs to be done. Its just a case of raiding the wardrobes and food cupboards.

Wednesdays casual outfit
Top - Thrifted
Jeans - Tesco
Sandals - Old

We are both hoping for some nice weather, that said it was predicting awful rain. Typical eh.


As for the youngest, well you'd think we were leaving her for months, not a night or two.


Oh well, I don't suppose many 18 year olds would rather have mom and dad at home instead of a house to themselves, so we mustn't grumble.
And I do love having the girls around, they are such lovely company.

Wait A Minute Mr Postman....

The postman or post lady tends to bring me bills mainly but of late I must admit they have also been bringing me a few goodies too.

And this was a very nice package to receive:


My watch win from the lovely Laura over at A Daisy Chain Dream
Not only is she a stunner but also a fabulous blogger.
So if you haven't visited before, what are you waiting for?


This has been a perfect solution for work, as now I am store based I can't carry my phone around.

Thanks again Laura, I love it!

End Of the Line...


Today was the funeral of my friends husband.
A huge loss at such a young age.



So many people filled the church (It was overflowing in fact) to give thanks for having known such a lovely man.
So happy, cheeky and a little naughty too.


So many tears, bur also much laughter and memories shared.


Whilst it might be the end of the line for this part of the journey we know he will be setting up the pranks ready for when any of us join him.
