2021 ~ My Year In Photos.

2021 is a wrap folks! Here’s my usual yearly round-up in photos, of what has been another very Up and Down twelve months.

Snow up Pendle.

January ~ We started the year still in lock-down , the rare snow in my hometown certainly made folk here completely giddy, everyone seemed to head up Pendle Hill for fun in the white stuff. There were sad times too as I lost a family member to covid.

Resting on a Bolton By Bowland walk.

February ~ From what I remember the first few months of 2021 involved lots of chilly local hikes and tramping through lots of mud. But as a certain Black Labrador loves his walks, this didn’t bother us too much. ๐Ÿ™‚

A friends Birthday ๐ŸŽ‰

March ~ This photo was taken on my friend Fi’s Birthday. We were still in lock-down and I’m not even sure that 3 people from 3 households were supposed to meet up actually. We took cans to a local beer garden and celebrated outdoors, not another soul in sight! Fi says it was one of her best birthdays!

Worsaw wander.

April ~ I remember how good it felt in April when we were officially allowed to meet up for walks in larger groups. An Easter walk took us to Downham via a wander up Worsaw Hill. Also in April we could start using our caravan in the Eden Valley again.

Miles of golden sand , Wells Next The Sea.

May ~ Hurrah, restrictions over and a holiday happened! A week in sunny Norfolk with Wil and Hugo, in a cottage by the sea.

Llama trekking , Brougham Castle.

June ~ It was good to spend a few days at the caravan with friends in June. A Cat cafe, the Lakes Zoo and Llama trekking were amongst the fun times had.

Afternoon Tea in Skipton.

July ~ Enjoyed the most decadent Afternoon Tea with pals this month. Life was truly getting back to normal.

All Aboard The Ratty!

August ~ We were fortunate enough to spend a lovely long weekend in Ravenglass & Eskdale in August. It’s become tradition to ride the Ratty on these occasions. ๐Ÿ™‚

A Wainwright Memorial above Blackburn.

September ~ I think my favourite walk in September may well have been a local one to find Alfred Wainwright’s memorial, in the hills above Blackburn.

Pumpkin Patch ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

October ~ Unfortunately Wil got sciatica which put a stop to our walks together for a while. Luckily he’s much better now. For once I was faster on my feet than my other half for a change! We went ahead with a mini break in Scotland, but kept our explorations to a minimum.

Birthday ๐ŸŽ‚

November ~ Unlike 2020 I got to go out for my Birthday this year. Happy days. ๐Ÿ˜

Spot the Slinky.

December ~ Theres been Christmas meet ups with family and friends and so far, touchwood, everyone has stayed safe and healthy. Can you spy my moggie Slinky Malinki in the festive photo above?

Wishing my followers and fellow bloggers a Happy and Healthy 2022.

See you on the other side. X

  1. Lots of great memories from your year, I love the llamas and that beach photo looks like it’s straight off the cover of a holiday brochure ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The llamas are adorable and are now based in the Melmerby where the caravan is, very handy. Somebody had left the colourful spade in the sand at Wells, it made for a great photo. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Absolutely beautiful. Iโ€™ve just been sitting putting together something similar and it feels like such a journey this year, had almost forgotten how those early months felt and how wonderful it was to get back to everything. Love seeing your holidays and birthdays and returning to everything! Hope you enjoy some peace in the last few days of the year and all the best for 2022 xx

  3. Wonderful photos and thanks for sharing memories. It definitely has been an up and down year. I love that many of your photos were healthy outdoors adventures – that’s definitely one bonus of the pandemic, it made many (incl me) get off the sofa and out into the fresh air ! May 2022 bring more happy memories, less restrictions and great health!

      1. Thank you shazza. After a bit of a traumatic Christmas few days I am trying to rally myself with positive thoughts for 2022 – amongst which will be completing some more WIPs (say the same thing every new year!) and finally moving house

  4. You’ve managed to enjoy a fun filled year, despite everything. It’s always good to spend time in the great outdoors.
    Slinky Malinki blends in well. X

      1. Hi Eunice the Cat Cafe was actually more of a Cat Bar that serves good and is in Hawkshead. It’s called Kitchen , there are 6 or 7 cats t here. X

  5. You certainly had quite a busy year in spite of any earlier restrictions. Where was the cat cafe you went to? I can just about see Slinky but she’s almost invisible ๐Ÿ™‚
