Happy Sunday .. .. and happy October too!
It has all been rather quiet on my blog recently .. .. mainly due to Mr Heart wanting to whisk me away for a few nights .. .. and that meant I needed to work like a woman possessed to meet my deadlines before the escape could take place.
I needed the break in the end just to make up for the late nights which I needed to work!!
So where did we escape to?
Well a place where time seems to have stood still .. .. Masham in North Yorkshire. A lovely old fashioned and quaint little place where everyone seemed to have the time of day for you. We even saw a coal-man delivering sacks of coal on his back .. .. just like I remember from years ago when I was an annoying child!
Of course the main reason for going was so Mr Heart could enjoy tours around the two local breweries .. .. but as he puts up with such a lot from me I decided to just go along with whatever he had planned.
What a fabulous place to chill. Certainly a different pace of life to what we are used to. We parked the car and vowed not to use it until we set off for our journey home again. Lots of sleeping, walking, talking, eating and drinking and we enjoyed every second .. .. and our escape was made all the more enjoyable by the lovely couple who owned the fabulous bed and breakfast where we stayed .... Millgate B&B. Talk about being spoilt. I really hope we get to stay with them again .. .. their customer service and super tasty breakfast menu will stay in my memory for always!
Mr Heart has been wanting to stay there for years .. .. but whenever we were free the B&B wasn't .. .. but this year it happened and we had a really good break .. .. but I did take some colouring with me. I couldn't possibly switch off completely!
A little re-arranging of the furniture in the bedroom and I was well sorted for tickling a few images with my ProMarkers .. .. and today's snippet make uses one of them.
As always I am lazy on a Sunday and do not list my ingredients, but if anyone has any questions then just give me a shout. (But I don't know the winning lottery numbers for next week I'm afraid).
Of course as you would expect I am back to a longer list than I left behind .. .. along with a new "happy couple" who have been added to my list .. .. woo hoo!! Plus I have also added a mission of trying to make "beer bread". We were given it at a local restaurant whilst we were away as a little "treat" to munch whilst waiting for our meals.. .. definitely need to re-create that!!
So off I pop to share my card over in the Crafty Snippets Challenge as everything came from my huge pile of snippets.
Catch you again when I do.
Love Jules xx
