Sunday Sevens 19th November.

I’ve just realised whenever I post a Sunday Sevens ( 7 or more pictures from the past seven days) I seem to average about one per month, not one per week! But anyway I have just had a week off work…and that seems a good enough reason to join in. ๐Ÿ˜

Last weekend it was my Birthday get together so here I am on a Night out with the girls. I’m holding an Espresso Martini , which does look more like a Guinness! 

A week off means more time spent walking with this gentleman of course. It’s been pretty muddy and squelchy in the fields. But that doesn’t stop Hugo’s enjoyment. Whilst I am busy pulling myself out of bogs , he whizzes round like a whirling dervish! Here he is in a rare still moment.

On my actual Birthday my friend Lisa took me to Manchester and we had a great time mooching round the Northern Quarter. This is a colourful area in the city full of quirky bars, cute cafes and independent shops. Just my cup of tea! I am sure I will blog about it soon. ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿธ

My Guilty pleasure at the moment is watching Grimm, a supernatural series about a homicide detective who inherits the ability to see monsters.Those goblin, witches and werewolf types inspired by Grimm’s fairytales. And there are a lot of monsters in Portland for sure!  I have also finally finished watching Son’s of Anarchy with Wil. All 7 seasons! When he first started watching it I thought it wouldn’t be my thing, a drama about an outlaw motorcycle gang. But hey it became an addiction! What TV shows are you enjoying at the moment? 

Presently I am stopping in an apartment in Harrogate with Wil ( my Birthday present! ) and yesterday I got to cross something off my Bucket List. ๐Ÿ˜ I had booked us into the Turkish Baths which are Britain’s most fully restored Victorian Turkish Baths. As you can see , I took one very sneeky pic in the Relaxation Room aka the Frigidarium. Photography is not allowed but I wanted to prove I visited this beautiful building with its gorgeous ornate tiling. Bliss..

 

We also had early morning coffees before our spa experience in a Harrogate institution Betty’s Tea Rooms. I think having breakfast there maybe before 9am , is one way of beating the queues! 

But I will post more about our stay in Harrogate very soon. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks to Natalie at www.threadsandbobbins.com/ for organizing. 

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. You’ve managed to fit in a lot of lovely activities. Harrogate is still on my wish list and it’s not even that far away! I have been to that part of Manchester and near Christmas too, I agree it’s great isn’t it? Must give those series a go. I’m always up for trying something new.

    1. Harrogate is lovely. You will really have to visit. And I definitely recommend the Turkish Baths, even though I am not much of a spa person. Its just so atmospheric with the elaborate tiling, so full of history. Glad you have been the Northern Quarter. I do not go there enough! I am looking for something to watch now we have finally completed Sons of Anarchy. Stranger Things was a fave too. X

  2. I think you mean the mud adds to Hugos enjoyment ๐Ÿ™‚ Sending you belated Happy birthday wishes. If there’s one person i can rely on to celebrate their birthday in style, it’s you ๐Ÿ™‚ xxx
