Summer Links & Likes.

Hey , I totally missed putting up a Links & Likes for June, so without further ado, here’s  my Summer Edition. It will most probably come in two parts,  as we have some way to go yet,  thank goodness!  There’s definitely a bit of a travel theme going on here. So hopefully a bunch of holiday inspiration. 🙂 . Enjoy!

Know where to find the best Ice Cream Parlours in the North East?  Chloe has put in some serious research!

Paul is galavanting round Iceland , ticking off Game Of Thrones filming locations. 🙂

Polly attends a family wedding in beautiful Portmerion , and gets to wear a gorgeous vintage dress. 

The Greedy Sisters do great City Travel Guides!  Look out for their latest adventures in Athens and Avignon. 

Church yards make perfect haunts for summer wildlife, as Amanda finds out,  in Yorkshire.

Yarn bombed Seahorses and Mermaids! Where else but Saltburn by the Sea , with Jo of course!

And more seaside fun. 🙂  The Retro Poodles are in sunny Seaham….and look at the treasures they have found. 🙂

Christine is Wild Swimming amidst stunning Lake District Scenery.

Piia  has wrote an informative guide  Ten Free Things To Do In Helsinki. Makes me want to get up and go!

How lovely to holiday on the beautiful Island of Islay , as seen here on A Mischief Managed – and other Adventures.


And Bev celebrated her blog’s Birthday….by drinking Champagne in Champagne!

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the blog posts. 🙂

Sunday Sevens ~ July 3rd.

Hi I thought I would join in with Sunday Sevens this week ,as devised by Natalie at Threads And Bobbins. Here’s what I have got up to lately! 

We booked a break down in Cornwall at the lovely Spring Park in the Tamar Valley.I am beyond excited as it is somewhere I have wanted to stop  ,ever since I discovered the owner Kitty’s blog,a few years ago.She doesn’t blog anymore ~ I think she’s just to busy with the park,two dogs…. and a new baby. Spring Park is a collection of colourful Showman’s Wagons,all beautifully done up and decorated with vintage touches.We shall be staying in The Duke, which even has it’s own Hot Tub.Roll on August.:)

I had an Amazing Surprise this Week.I got a nice little windfall from claiming back a PPI refund!  If your a bit like me ,and really can’t be bothered with stuff like that,then I would advise you to give it a go anyway. It’s something you can do yourself over the phone,without going through a company. My bank ( Barclays) simply gave me a number to ring ,when we discovered I had been paying £6 a month for a ppi ,that I didn’t realise I had taken out. Six weeks later…….and I’m feeling quite flush.;) Silly story though,I went on a mini spending spree,got as far as buying the above new bag and sunglasses……and promptly lost my bank card! I had to cancel it and wait for a new one.Spending Spree temporarily over.What am I like!

This week has seen the Season Six Finale of That show. That tv show that literally makes my teeth chatter whenever I watch it. Game Of Thrones has gripped me from the very first episode.And now it looks like the next season could be the last! But if it is, its set up to be a humdinger.Is anyone out there a fan? I kid you not about my chattering teeth!!

 

Yesterday I went to the Races for the first time ever.I went with Wil and several of his old work colleagues,a trip they plan yearly. There were certainly elements to the day that I enjoyed.I enjoyed dressing up for a day out and seeing all the lovely ladies parading in beautiful dresses and hats. It was fun to sip cocktails and prosecco. It was even fun picking potential winners ( or losers in my case), but then there was the uncomfortable moment when one of the horses didn’t want to race. The poor thing was incredibly stressed as several of its trainers tried to push it blind folded into it’s starting block. Then some stupid moron shouted ‘shoot the thing’ because the horse refused to play by the rules. Luckilly in the end that particular horse and rider pulled out. But the situation did make me think, is this really such a good day out? What do you think about horse racing?

And finally I will leave you with two pictures from the Euros. I’m not really a football fan but I do enjoy a good tournament. And if I was actually a betting type,I would never have fancied my chances with either Wales or Iceland.Who knows ,one of these passionate nations may just reach the finals. Good luck with your match this evening Iceland. Can’t wait to hear that Haka like War Chant! 🙂

#BEDM Tell Us Something New.

So here’s my first post for Rosalilium’s  Blog Every Day In May Challenge. Five very quick facts about moi…

1. I once got tutted at by Lenny Henry.He was behind me in a queue in a shop in Leeds and the mere sight of him made me forget my cards pin number. Luckily my other half stepped in with the cash.

2. I feel compelled to pet every black labrador that I meet, despite having one at home. 🙂

3. I have enjoyed eating 20 Afternoon Teas. And all bar one were consumed after I started this blog. It gets the blame entirely.;)

CELANDINE.

4. My teeth chatter when I watch Game of Thrones.

5. I have a black cat called Slinky Malinki. She’s a rescue and i didn’t have the heart to change such a fantastic name. 

Thats all for now.Let me know if your doing the challenge too. X
