Adventures in The North

So we're back from The North.  
Everything was so BIG especially Manchester, it's huge!
We knew we were going North when we spied snow on the fields. 
 Heather took us on a tour of Manchester city centre, big shops, canals, a metro, and around Chorlton where she lives, good beer and interesting shops selling lots of tasty goodies!
Sunday we visited Yorkshire Sculpture Park near Wakefield we had a lovely day out the weather was actually warm for a while and we all enjoyed walking around.
The sculptures were interesting but taking pictures of them artistically was virtually impossible as there were so many people enjoying the sunshine!
Anyway here is a selection of piccies, starting with Heather our guide and leader! 

Oliver spent the weekend trying to photobomb my photos!

The Barbara Hepworth sculptures were my favourites

It's a shame the light wasn't great.

Some things on chairs with no heads LOL I've decided that I really do not like surreal art, especially things without heads, but the tree was magnificent.

Beautiful Camelia 

Uh oh Oliver strikes again!

Heronry over 25 nests!


Heather and Tom

Henry Moore sculpture

All the gang!

Spring's here

Another Henry Moore. We tried to get a shot of us sitting on this one but everytime we went near it other people came along to spoil our fun! We gave up and I took a long shot instead.

And then there were the lambs. 
Everyone all together

We had a lovely break and a glorious time with Heather. It was so lovely to spend time with my girl, we did alot of hugging and laughing. I love her so much and she's so far away I have to top up on Heather love whenever I get the chance!

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.
