What Should I take with me on My Christmas Break In TheDales ?

This year the boyfriend, the dog, and I are going away for Christmas. I’m quite excited as we are off to a cottage in the Yorkshire Dales.A roaring log fire,beautiful countryside and three pubs and a tearoom all on our doorstep.Yay!
However I have on good authority that we will have no mobile signal in the village.Yikes! My boyfriend is very happy about this as he isn’t into social media at all.So whil’st he is cheerily pulling on his walking boots,I will be moaning the loss of Facebook,Twitter,wordpress and everything else I take for granted on my android phone. But not for long I hope! Instead I plan to make the most of an Internet free few days:

I hope to get out and about with my camera and see if i can take a few good wildlife shots like this picture of a bluetit I came accross on a walk back in October. 🙂

I definately have to catch up on my reading.’A Street Cat Called Bob’ has been waiting patiently on my bedside table for a while now. It is a true story about a stray ginger cat who befriends a homeless busker.Bob certainly looks a cutie on the front cover and his story is supposed to be an uplifting and heartwarming read.

Last Christmas my friend Fi got me this pretty cat brooch to make and I haven’t got round to it yet.So this is definatly on my list of things to do. I might also try making some pom poms! Yes I need to get a bit crafty!

And of course everyone probably has at least one classic Christmas film they have never watched but really should.In my case it is an old movie called ‘Its A Wonderful Life’ starring James Stewart.I hope I can find a copy…..

No doubt there will be quite alot of walking too and quite alot of sampling real ales in the local inns…and maybe some romantic evenings in by the fire 😉

How are you going to spend your Christmas holidays?
