As is now a December tradition, I am sharing my year in photos. It’s been a pretty fab one. Life is looking good!
In January I started the #walk1000miles challenge again, determined to beat the 1600 plus miles I did in 2018. Had great fun doing the RSPB Big Bird Watch with my sister’s family, including Chloe the cat. And spent a weekend in Edinburgh. for Wils birthday.
February was pretty quiet , we changed the colour of the bedroom. I’m glad my other half is a dab hand with a paint brush. 😁
There was a weekend away in March with some walking in the fells near Coniston.
And more gallivanting in April , this time with pals, discovering Street Art In Bristol..
May felt strange, as I left my job of twenty nine years. I took my redundancy and have basically spent the rest of the year spending it! Highlights in May included Badger Watching at RSPB Haweswater and my friend Gills wedding. Wil and I scrubbed up ok.:)
June was the only time we managed to get a camping trip in. This is my fave photo from our weekend in Ingleton with friends. Our dogs on a date 😁~ Hugo & Bel the Bedlington terrier. Later this month I bought a static caravan in the Eden Valley in Cumbria!
In July we spent a tranquil four nights in a Tree Dome in Shropshire ( booked before my impromptu caravan purchase), got the caravan kitted out and I found work in a local cafe. I’m still there but it’s not the most stable of jobs. Who knows what the new year will bring..
August was mainly about exploring the area local to our van. Much of the rest of 2019 was devoted to this pursuit. 😁
I visited Amsterdam for the first time in September and the girls and I spent a chilled weekend at the caravan.
October was the month of Afternoon Teas ( in both Manchester and Leeds) plus The Winter Droving Festival in Penrith.
November is my birthday month and Wil treated us to a night away at the Haweswater Hotel. 🙂
And now it’s December and we are away yet again, this time in a cottage in Keswick, also booked before we bought the caravan. Despite losing my job this year, it seems I have taken more trips than any other! I know I have so so much to be thankful for and this little blog is definitely one of those things…..
I’d like to wish you all the best for 2020. Here’s to a healthy & happy New Year. Xx
