I am a confirmed countryside lass, but if i did have to live in a city again - it would probably be Sheffield. ( Although the steel city is on the edge of the dark peak so would that be cheating 🤔... ?)
Anyway, this is the quietest I have ever seen the Peace Gardens. I love the gothic architecture, and sandstone of the Town Hall - especially when the skies are grey and moody 🌫
Ayup! You probably know Haworth as the home of literary giants, the Brontë sisters, but did you also know that there’s a tradition amongst the market traders at Christmas known as ‘scroggling the holly’? I saw that on Wikipedia and was intrigued but it gives no further information whatsoever. As if they can just tantalise me with that and leave me hanging?!! So I did my own research and apparently it just involves gathering holly to decorate the town with and they don’t even do it any more . I feel like a revival is imminent though, just so’s I can incorporate the word ‘scroggle’ into my vocabulary. Who’s with me?
And just like that, it is time to go back to school. Baba is going back to the nursery tomorrow and I feel at peace with it. How was your week off with the children at home?🙂 I usually struggle during the school holidays. Being a freelancer, I can not stop working altogether for a week or two. I usually end up a bit frustrated and guilty most of the time when I ask Baba to keep himself busy 🙈
But this time around, I simply let it go. I actually decided not to work to spend some quality time with this coolster and I am so much happier! 🙌🙌 No mum guilt this time!🥰🥰 There were some days when I did not even turn the laptop on and I was barely on my phone either! It was so refreshing.
After all, I decided to become self-employed back in 2018 to be with Baba and have my own hours without any constraint 😋 It was a good reminder and I shall do this more often 😊🙌 It was just so awesome to go for a little getaway with this cute dude and not to worry about deadlines and emails.
Now I am feeling more inspired and ready than ever to work again this week! 😆
How do you manage school holidays as a working parent? Do you slow down or even take some time off to look after your little ones? What have you been up to last week despite the rainy and windy British weather? 😘😘 📸📍 Eastbourne @grandhoteleastbourne

One of my favourite spots in the Northumberland national park. The beautiful linhope spout at the head of the Ingram valley

Sheltering out of the battering winds on the summit of Hedgehope hill in the Cheviots. A cracking viewpoint where you can take in the majority of the northumberland coast and the Surrounding Cheviot hills
Thanks to all our visitors this week! After the storms and having to reopen 2 days later than planned we were very grateful the rain let up and kids on half-term were able to get out and about again. It's great to see so your tags and feedback and it's lovely to be open again 😊
We're open Wednesdays and weekends now until Easter. Looking forward to a nice (relatively dry) spring 🙏🌱🌿
My Saturday afternoon nature fix certainly didn’t disappoint.... I’ve just spend a few hours exploring Puzzle wood. We are so blessed to have this on our doorstep. It’s like an insane hidden land that reveals a magical ancient wood of moss, fern, trees and rock formations .... ( I am a bit obsessed with moss on rocks and ferns ), the atmosphere, peace and energy here has certainly nourished my soul.
Puzzlewood is the result of natural underground caves , that has been exposed over the years by water erosion. I loved my geography at school.
I don’t think the video even does it justice, but if you appreciate nature then I can highly recommend a visit.
The grey and gloomy weather doesn’t seem to be letting up does it? If January felt like a long month, February has certainly been a wet one.
We’d love to know how many umbrellas have lost their lives in the wind and rain recently - especially in Edinburgh where you are only ever one street away from a mini tornado.
Hopefully this is all the bad weather in one month and it will be all sunshine in March - let’s see!
