#MySundayPhoto – Lowther Castle

Last week Paul and I took the sprogs to Lowther Castle for the day. We were graced by the good weather but sadly cursed by the bank holiday traffic. What should have taken us just over an hour and a half in the car took us almost two hours or more.

Seriously, I must have a bladder the size of a pea as having drunk way too much coffee prior to setting off it was actually me that seemed to cause the hold up with endless pit stops whilst on the road.

Having finally arrived at the castle we settled for dinner in the courtyard (a picnic prepared by Paul).… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – The Fearless Foursome

Happy Sunday and of course, Happy Easter to you all! I’ve once again been busy behind the bar keeping the punters happy whilst Paul spent the afternoon out and about with the kids.

I often feel guilty for being out over the weekend, it doesn’t seem right especially with it being Easter. Needs must I guess, here’s hoping that with a little luck and a bit more time I might be able to find an alternative job with more sociable hours.

Anyhow less of the moaning as despite my absence the kids still had oodles of fun with their wonderful Daddy and the dog of course.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Wading In Wellingtons

My children have the most wonderful collection of footwear but should you ask them what they’d most favour to wear it would without a doubt be their Wellington boots. The kids seem to have the most fun whilst wearing their welly boots, whether it’s jumping in muddy puddles, blasting along the beach, getting into gardening or wading in the water.

We have recently ordered new wellington boots for the children as their boots are that well-worn the lining has now separated from the rubber boots. My own boots have also seen better days so along with the chocolate eggs and fluffy chicks I think it may be new wellies all round this Easter!… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Blue Skies

Excuse my rather late ‘Sunday Photo’ but we’ve been ever so slightly busy celebrating a certain hunky husband’s birthday. That’s right, Paul turned 21 again today and to celebrate we had a lovely dinner at my in-laws then took the kids out to the swimming baths to have a splash and a swim.

It’s been a great day, Paul was spoilt rotten by his family and friends. We had a wonderful time together as a family and to top it all the weather has been splendid. There’s nothing quite like blue skies for lifting your spirits and making a good day into a great day.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – Loving The Lakes

Firstly may I begin this weeks #MySundayPhoto post by wishing Mothers UK wide a very Happy Mothers Day!

I woke earlyish this morning to a mahoosive card, and an array of flowers and chocolates from the kids. Following being spoilt rotten I dragged myself out of bed an hour earlier than usual thanks to the clocks changing and got myself ready for yet another day behind the bar.

Following what must have been one of the busiest Sunday shifts this year so far, I returned home to find the hubby had been busy in the kitchen making a fabulous Sunday Roast which we all enjoyed.… Read more from this post

#MySundayPhoto – I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud

Following a busy day behind the bar I jumped into the car and began my journey home. Whilst driving through the valley I couldn’t help but to notice the beauty which surrounded me.

The sun was gently glowing from behind the hedgerows casting a golden light upon the shimmering spring shower puddles, the flowers were in full bloom and the birds were twittering in the trees.

Spring has finally sprung and the countryside looks fresh following its long winters sleep. Don’t get me wrong, I love the winter months as I do the warm summer sunshine but there’s nothing quite like those mid-seasons. Spring and even more so, Autumn for bringing beauty and endless colour to the landscape in which we live.… Read more from this post
