Summer adventures

I’ve mentioned before how one of the things I absolutely love doing is going on ‘adventures’ and travelling around England revisiting places I used to go when I was younger and finding new places to visit as a family in the future.
Some of the places we have visited recently have included a car vintage fair;
Our weekend ritual involves going out for breakfast, I pick a homemade outfit or something Cabbage & Roses inspired and slap on the red lipstick. Lots of car poses happen during this time – hey car journeys are boring okay?! Red lipstick makes me feel uber glamorous. This was on our way to the Lake District.


Picture now with added thumb. I really would love to learn some decent photography skills!


This was the hotel we stayed in near Cockermouth (yup it’s ACTUALLY called that, major props to us for not slipping up and renaming it!).

Beach walk with a gorgeous sunset. It was absolutely freezing here but so beautiful.


The beautiful Grasmere.

With added Cabbages and Roses inspired outfit:

When we’re not gallivanting round the country we like to go out for breakfast and pretend to be old grandparents by getting fish and chips and eating them in the car. I’m old past my time!

This breakfast was the best thing I have ever eaten. No lie. All visit Nick’s in Holmfirth!

We live in Holmfirth near Huddersfield, which is in such a beautiful part of Yorkshire. It’s a pleasure to drive 5 mins from our house and be surrounding by gorgeous scenery.

And finally a bad picture of me wearing my Lilou dress. I really need to take some better pictures, but we all know making and sewing is much easier than blogging and photography!
What do you like to do in your spare time? Any places to recommend visiting?
