Making a #wish by tying a ribbon on the #wishing tree
The Nunnington Wishing Tree – I love any opportunity to make a wish, so when I spotted the Wishing Tree at Nunnington Hall, I was so excited to tie my wish ribbon to the tree… here’s hoping it comes true!

Historic Houses – I adore places like historic houses, they’re my “happy place” so my weekend was just perfect as I was able to visit two stunning properties. Newby Hall in particular was just breathtaking! As an added bonus for me, I discovered that they filmed one of my favourite shows, Victoria, there.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 16th July 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created and hosted by Diana at Part Time Monster.

If we were having coffee today, you would be joining me at the stunning Newby Hall. My husband and I are here primarily for the Historical Vehicle Rally, but I also took the time to go on a guided tour of the house which was fantastic. I’ve visited many beautiful stately homes over the years but Newby is particularly exceptional.

My apologies for missing our coffee share last week, but I was helping mum with the last part of her house move and she doesn’t have a phone line set up at the new place yet. I’ve also been having a nightmare with our internet connection at home, it’s currently taking at least quarter of an hour to load a page which isn’t exactly ideal!

So how have things been for you these past two weeks? My big news that you might have seen from my Three Things Thursday post is that my husband and I are finally in a position to buy our own home! We’ve already started looking around a few houses and I can’t wait until we have a place to call our own.

Apart from house hunting, most of the days have been taken up with the usual house and office work… yesterday was absolutely lovely though. We went to Nunnington Hall in Yorkshire and after looking around the house we strolled around the beautiful gardens, played Pooh sticks, croquet and giant jenga. Later on we had a fabulous evening meal at The Nags Head and had a late night walk around the quiet little village of Pickhill.

All in all it’s been the perfect weekend, and exactly what I needed after several weeks of stress and tears. Here’s hoping next week will be even better, I hope your week will also be lovely! Thank you for joining me for this Coffee Share, don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up.

So sorry for the delay this week, I’ve been having major technical troubles with the internet (which also caused me to miss the Weekend Coffee Share). Hopefully everything will be back up and running now!

Number One

My Husband – It’s been a tough few weeks recently, with plenty of stress and tears… but my husband has been a total rock throughout everything. I am so grateful for everything that he does, and for always making my smile no matter what!

Number Two
3TT1.13.07
House Hunting – At the very start of the year, I mentioned that there were going to be big changes for us… and I’m over the moon to say one of those changes will be buying our first home! We’ve finally reached the point were we can start house hunting and I’m so excited!

Number Three
3TT3.13.07
Mermazing! – I absolutely love mermaids, so finding a huge range of mermaid related items for sale (and incredibly cheaply too) at The Card Factory totally made my day! I might just have to go back for the rest of the range…

Walking in the Countryside – I went for a beautiful walk with my husband on Sunday. I’m so grateful to live in an area where these lovely views are just a few minutes walk away.

Loving this set from @soapandglory 😍 #TreatYoSelf

Treating Myself – I was moving some books the other day and I found a gift voucher that has been missing since my birthday! I love Soap & Glory products so I treated myself to this gorgeous Happy Glamper Festival Kit.

A Good Sleep (Hopefully!) – I suffer from insomnia, so I was delighted to discover the Sleep Essentials Kit by Feather & Down whilst I was treating myself. I love anything lavender scented, so I’m looking forward to trying out their products.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 2nd July 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster and hosted by Emily at Nerd in the Brain.

If we were having coffee today, you would be joining me for a relaxing drink at home. Would you care for a cup of cherry chocolate coffee? My friend sent me a jar last week and I’ve been looking forward to trying it out.

How have you been this week? Mine started off very stressful and upsetting, but thankfully things have improved somewhat. I’m not going to keep focusing on the negative, so instead I will talk about all the nice things that have happened…

Mum finally moved into her new house and is settling in. I’ve only seen one or two photos so far, but it looks great already. I can’t wait to visit and see it all… it’s going to look especially wonderful at Christmas with the log fire.

Friday marked 14 years since I randomly decided to have lunch at Pizza Hut, and just so happened to meet the man I was going to marry. Obviously there was only one place for us to go to mark this momentous occasion, so we had a lovely evening meal.

Yesterday my husband’s parents came to visit us for the first time, so we took them to the Nene Valley Railway, lunch at the Tobie Norris in Stamford and drinks at Charters Bar in Peterborough. The highlight for me was eating pancakes for breakfast whilst watching the steam trains go by in the glorious sunshine.

This morning I was rearranging my books and as I moved them, a gift card fell out that’s been missing ever since my birthday! I must have put it inside the book “for safe keeping” as I was travelling home that day. I’ve just checked and it’s still valid, so I’m looking forward to a mini-spending spree later!

My husband has just made the excellent suggestion that we go out for lunch, so I best be getting ready. Hopefully next week will bring more happiness and less stress! Thank you for joining me for this Coffee Share, I hope you have a lovely week ahead. Don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up.

#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 25th June 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster and hosted by Emily at Nerd in the Brain.

If we were having coffee today, you would be joining us in the middle of a major packing operation. Everything has been sorted with my mum’s house sale and the contracts have finally been exchanged after 5 incredibly stressful months. Moving day is next week so we’ve not got much time to get the last of the house in boxes!

Have you had a nice week? I had two surprises on Thursday, my friend sent me a parcel filled with lovely things to congratulate me on my job, and our wedding photographer sent us some classic car books just because he thought we would like them. I love getting happy mail! Have you had something good turn up in the post recently?

Sorry this chat has to be so short this week, but we only have a few hours left to finish the house so I best get on. Thank you for joining me for this Coffee Share, I hope you have a lovely week ahead. Don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up!

I've joined the Wizarding World Book Club from @pottermore #HarryPotter

#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee on 18th June 2017

Thanks for joining me for this Weekend Coffee Share, created by Diana at Part Time Monster and hosted by Emily at Nerd in the Brain.

If we were having coffee today, we would be having some ice cold drinks instead. It’s absolutely scorching here today so we’re having refreshing fruit juice and plenty of it! What’s your favourite way to cool down?

How are you today? It’s been a relatively quiet week for me, with being in the office and getting the housework done. Friday was good fun though, the company my husband and I work for held a big awards ceremony in London. Pixie Lott, 5 After Midnight, Calum Scott and Ella Eyre all performed at the after show party. It was lovely being able to get to know my colleagues more and to see my friends be nominated for (and win!) some very special awards.

It’s Father’s Day today and unfortunately I now live too far away to be able to visit my dad’s grave. Instead I have bought a lovely memorial candle/photo frame for home, which I have lit. For those of you who are celebrating today, I hope you’re having a lovely day with your dads and cherishing your time together… for those who aren’t for whatever reason, I’m sending you lots of love and strength for today and every day.

Thank you for joining me for this Coffee Share, I hope you have a great week. Don’t forget to visit my fellow bloggers for a cuppa and a catch up!
