I Think I've Died and Gone to Heaven Part 2
Morning ladies! I'm back again with more photos of our holiday. As there are lots of pictures I'll try not to give you sensory overload with too much natter.So let's get going. We decided to stick close to home on Sunday after the long journey the day before. I'd heard lots about Sizergh Castle, so we decided to visit there.
To be honest, I was a little disappointed with the house itself. Every blind and curtain seemed to be closed, which made an already very dark house difficult to enjoy. I do appreciate the conservation issues but I would like to see the house I'm walking around. Take note please NT!
By contrast the garden were full of gorgeous colour and it was so relaxing walking around with the sun on my back and a strawberry ice-cream in my hand.
Monday was once again sunny and hot and my boys decided that they wanted to
climb the fell that sort of came with our cottage.Did I want to go with them?
Not on your nelly! I was quite happy to sun myself in the garden, enjoy the view from the living room
and complete this taxing project.
They did get to the top of the fell.
And bought back these picture perfect views.
Kirkby Lonsdale was our destination on Tuesday. It was a sunny day, but very, very windy, which made wearing my new skirt quite difficult but here's the photo to prove I actually got to wear one.
I think my legs are red with cold, rather than the sunshine of the previous day. As for Kirkby Lonsdale.
It was a shopping paradise for bloggers.
I did buy a lovely metal sign for my soon to be new bathroom but perhaps I'll show you that when the bathroom is done! After lunch we pootled along to Arnside, a small Victorian town on Morecambe Bay.
You can see the rain clouds gathering can't you? Time for a warming cuppa and a slice of chocolate cake methinks!
The Posh Sardine was just the place for this. As well as selling loads of funkiness it had a welcoming cafe area from which you could enjoy scenic views of the bay with a certain degree of warmth. I managed to spend some more money before pootling on once again.
It did rain as we journeyed back to the cottage but we were greeted by these little ladies once again as we reached home, eager to see if we had anything for them.
We were in just the right place on a cold evening! I love evenings like this, cosy and warm after a lovely day with my family.
