Saturday was all about the CHILL. No work, school runs, homework or housework.

Our Weekend in Pictures

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.

Our Weekend in Pictures-Family Fun in Thirsk

It's already Friday again with a new and long weekend upon us with the bank holiday in the UK (yay) so I thought I better share last weekend with you all, and quick! I love reflecting on our weekends together, our precious family time, where we switch off from the week before, simply hang out, enjoy delicious food, at home, or out, and take in the lush Yorkshire countryside we live in and relax.

A Weekend Away at The Coach House in Yorkshire

After a month of illness in this family, we finally all felt better and were in much need of a retreat, a break from the norm, not far from home to simply rest, relax and feel rejuvenated once more. The universe must have been listening, as the wonderful Gorgeous Cottages got in touch to see if we wanted to break in a luxury holiday home, The Coach House in Yorkshire.

Autumn is Here

Yesterday was a perfect Autumnal day at the RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate. With the trees turning russet and golden, it was a beauty to behold. I think Autumn might just be my favourite season of all-a time of change, leaves mature, reach their peak, the air is still warm yet fresh and Yorkshire, my friends is at its finest.

It’s Cold…Very Cold

My terribly talented husband Peter took these stills this morning. It was -5 and FREEZING but so terribly pretty! This might be a good time for him to remind me that I didn't want to move to Los Angeles when he suggested it a few years back but LA doesn't have magical forests covered in dusty snow and frozen hose pipes right?
