Our aim as a family this year is to visit more National Trust properties than we did last year. In 2018 we were very bad at visiting places but we want to correct this for 2019. The first one that we ticked off the list was Bateman's National Trust which is the former home of Rudyard Kipling.Read More
It's at this time of year when National Trust gardens really come into their own, the flowers, the trees and the wildlife.
Our local garden Sheffield Park is simply stunning, they have the most beautiful waterlilies filling the ponds. Mix this with the wonderful rhododendrons their really isn't a better sight at this time of the year.Read More
National Trust properties and gardens are one of my favourite places to visit, they're always looking so perfect. Just down the road from us is the wonderful Sheffield Park and the other afternoon it was looking stunning.
Across one of the lakes, the waterlilies were really showing off. Over the next month, they've got their annual waterlily festive and it looks like it will be amazing.Read More
Whilst staying in North Wales we had plans to get out as much as possible and see a lot of different things. We have a soft spot for a castle or two...or rather I do.
We looked at all the ones local to Bangor and most places seemed to say that Penrhyn Castle is the best one around and the views are also stunning.Read More

Some days you just need to see lots of prettiness. After Tuesday I certainly need to seem some.

Daily Photo - Favourite Type of Monday
What type of Monday is the best...that would be a Bank Holiday Monday.
Last Sunday we all headed off the Blenheim Palace which was hosting CountryFile Live. It was a good event and the whole family seemed to enjoy themselves. As we were leaving to battle the massive traffic jams over the river Blenheim Palace stood proud.
Have a great Sunday and I will comment over the week as we're enjoying a childfree weekend in London.
The awesome people at PhotoBox have joined in and are offering a 60 x 40cm Classic Canvas as a prize each month until the end of year. I will pick a winner at the end of the month.
The winning photo might not be from the person who took the most amazing photo but perhaps it will be a photo that tells a beautiful story, or a photo that brightened up the day.
Again thank you every much and please feel free to add the badge to the post.
