Holidays

We’re Engaged!!

So I have exciting news for you, Cameron took me away for a few days at the beach in Scarborough, and while we were there, HE PROPOSED! It was such a great weekend, obviously, and I still can’t stop smiling… Continue Reading →

Packwood House

After visiting Croome and driving a bit further up the motorway, the plan was to visit Hardwick Hall, south of Sheffield. But we spent so long looking around the lovely Croome that we realised we’d get there about 15 minutes… Continue Reading →

Croome

Today was our drive back to Leeds from Bristol, and rather than break up the journey with service stations, we decided to break up the journey with a couple of National Trust properties instead. The first was Croome. We didn’t… Continue Reading →

Chedworth Roman Villa

This was a slightly longer drive away from Bristol than I had anticipated, and a lot of small narrow country roads, my idea of driving hell. But it was interesting to be walking around a place that was built about… Continue Reading →

Tyntesfield

For the next trip of our holiday we decided to go to Tyntesfield. Alan had been there a few times before and loved it, but we’d never been. It was a beautiful house inside and out, and the gardens were… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day Five – Midland Air Museum & Baddesley Clinton

For the final day of our holiday, we didn’t really know what we wanted to do, so I googled things to do in Coventry and the top result was the Midland Air Museum, based at Coventry Airport. At only £6.50… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day Four – Castle Drogo

Day four of our holiday involved a drive partially home for the next stage of our holiday in Coventry. We didn’t want to lose an entire day to travelling, so we decided to pick a National Trust property on our… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day Three – Lands End & St Michael’s Mount

No trip to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to Lands End, so we decided to venture down there on day three of our holiday. We arrived quite early, but it was already packed with visitors! There were quite… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day Two – Holywell Bay

On the second day of our holiday we decided to go for a drive and find one of the National Trust car parks on the coast which are free to park in for National Trust members like us. We picked… Continue Reading →

Cornwall Day One – Fowey

The first day of our holiday was mostly spent driving from Bristol to Cornwall after staying the night with my uncle the night before. But after we’d unpacked at the hotel, we decided to go for a drive and check… Continue Reading →

Holiday to Ashington

Well after a hard couple of months at work, we decided to take ourselves away for a long weekend, heading up north on Friday afternoon and coming back late Sunday evening. We stayed in a Premier Inn in the Queen… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day 5 – The Caravan

Well today was the last full day of our holiday and the day that Julie and David came back up. They were due to arrive just after 7pm, so we were cooking a two course meal for them. In the… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day 4 – All over the Yorkshire Dales

Well we had no idea what we wanted to do today, and since Cameron turned off the alarm and went back to sleep without waking me up, we didn’t leave the caravan until about 12. We decided to go for… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day 3 – Bolton Abbey and Aysgarth Falls

Bolton Abbey was our destination for today, only £7 to get in (per car, not each), and only 20 minutes from the caravan. When we set off, the weather was cloudy and a little bit cold, but after about 20… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day 2 – Skipton Castle

Today we decided to invite my parents and my grandma up to Skipton to take them out for lunch, so that my grandma could enjoy the sunshine. Then Vicky decided to come home from Sheffield for a few days so… Continue Reading →

Holiday Day 1 – Trip to Hawes Creamery and the Yorkshire Dales

Today was the first proper day of our holiday to Cameron’s Aunt and Uncle’s caravan in Skipton. We decided that we’d take a drive out into the dales and visit the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. We were a bit disappointed… Continue Reading →

Holiday to Edinburgh – February 2013

I’ve been a bit slack about blogging recently; between work, gym and sleep, I’ve hardly had any spare time. But I have lost a significant amount of weight this year, so the gym is obviously paying off, and I’d gladly… Continue Reading →

My Year in Pictures

Well as it’s coming to the end of the year, I guess it’s time to start writing all those ‘year in review’ type posts. First up is a collection of my favourite pictures from the year, it’s been a busy… Continue Reading →

No, I’m not married!

For my birthday this weekend, I went on holiday with Cameron to Whitehaven. It’s a lovely place in the lake district right next to the sea. We stayed at a Premier Inn again which was pretty nice (even if the… Continue Reading →

Scarborough and Whitby – Typical English Weather!!

When I realised that the Jubilee would give us two bank holidays in a row I decided to take the rest of the week off work. Cameron finished his final exams at uni a couple of weeks ago, so I… Continue Reading →
