A walk in the park

Last weekend we met up with some friends for lunch. After filling ourselves to the brim with delicious carvery lunch we took a stroll in Belton park to help burn off the calories. What an awesome sight it was to see the Reindeers wondering around the grounds, the air was crisp and certainly blew away any cobwebs. Its strange how we usually decline to move away from our cozy warm fires on cold damp days. But once out there we certainly felt invigorated and glad that we had ventured out. I must admit that I do often wish to live in a warmer climate, but there is something to be said for experiencing the environmental changes of the British seasons. The explosion of colour and growth in springtime and the rustic autumnal changes of the fall, blended together with the early morning songs brought to us from the vast array of birds and insects that migrate to our shores, just makes it pure bliss!

Cafe de Paris

My wonderful husband booked a trip to Monte Carlo as a special celebration for my 50th birthday! We both had a fantastic time and met up with fella blogger Jilly who resides in Monaco. It was so lovely to see her after all this time and Jilly proudly showed us around Monte Carlo with her new little companion. A little poodle that was dumped on her door step. Jilly as now named her 'Fanny' and you can read all about her on Jilly Riveria Dogs blog. Both myself and my hubby Gail's Man took plenty of photographs of our trip and I will be showing some more photo's within the next few days.
Hope that you like them and that they may prompt you to pay Monte Carlo a visit to sometime.
