Hi there everyone 😀
We seem to have been out and about all over the place since we've been back from The Llyn Peninsular. To finish off May we had our random meander around the Leicestershire countryside and a visit to Shugborough Hall, which I still have to tell you about.
It's only 10 June and we've already managed to visit Tissington in Derbyshire for the annual well dressing festival and we've also had our annual catch up with a group of old work friends, this time in Broadway in The Cotswolds, where we weren't totally thwarted by the typical British weather and managed to get out and do a bit of exploring.
The rain is most definitely set in for this week, which has put the mockers on a planned visit to Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens, but to be honest, I think both Martin and I have been glad of being able to just spend a bit of time at home, before he is back into work for the next two weeks. We might even have a sneaky afternoon of binge watching the second series of Killing Eve 😀
|Day 2 - After spending the morning on a long overdue tidy up, I spent the afternoon doing some button art, which I haven't done in absolutely ages. I always seem to be inspired to do more crafts after I've been to my craft group.|
|Day 4 - This rose has just been absolutely beautiful this year 💜🌸💜|
|Day 5 - All of a sudden it is looking like it will be another bumper year for blueberries 💜💜💜|
|Day 6 - We were off to Broadway for a long weekend, for our annual catch up with old work friends. It's the eighth year we've done it and we always have a great time. We always tend to try and visit somewhere on the way and this year we made our first ever visit to Sudeley Castle. I will tell you lots more about it in a separate post, but it was absolutely beautiful. This photo is one of my favourites as the sky looks very foreboding. Look the other way and it was blue skies and sunshine.|
|Day 7 - Today, it rained pretty much for the whole of the day. We had a walk up the High Street in Broadway, mooching in the little shops, trying our best to avoid the rain. Obviously there were call ins at tea shops and pubs too.|
