Sunday was all about 'wind-down time' after a slightly wild Saturday night celebrating my birthday with twenty friends (post to follow). So fresh air, a long walk in the forest, hot chocolate and heartwarming food with friends and family was just what we needed, and the perfect place to find it all (and more) was Stockeld Park.
I've not posted a 'Weekend in Pictures' for a while so I wanted to today.
This weekend has been pretty damn perfect.
Oh the wonderful weekend, where did it go? It feels so long ago now and it's only Tuesday, and I'm missing running through russet fields at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and breathing in that crisp autumnal air, squinting at sunlight filtering through the trees.
The weekend was one relaxing affair, we stayed at my folks' house, the home I grew up in on Saturday night so Peter and I could enjoy a rare date night, and all woke up to buttery warm bagels and the best babysitters in town. Bliss.
There's nothing lovelier in my book, than spending the weekend with happy-making friends and family. The weekends are our time to simply recharge our batteries and relax. We mostly spend them outdoors enjoying gorgeous Yorkshire, eating copious amounts of great food (luckily we have 4 restaurants in the family nearby) and resting from the busy week before, with the best of company. Last Sunday saw us do just that when we met up with our great friends Rachel, Richard and their sweet family in Leeds.
