Weekending





   



Last weekend Auntie Alison came to stay.  We picked her up from the station and whizzed up the A1 to Clumber Park.  We visited for the first time back in September and fell in love with the place and yet again it did not disappoint.  The colours all around were just stunning and there is something very satisfying about wrapping up in your coat, hat and scarf and walking when there is a nip in the air.

Jamie and Poppy had a great time, it's one of those places where they can run, jump, climb trees and be as loud as they like and you do not feel like you are imposing your family on other people. 





On our return, we tucked into a Gingerbread house that the children had built and decorated the night before ( sorry for the rubbish photo's!)  It was a kit given to us by Andy's mum which she got here and I have to say it was really well thought out.  It included the precut gingerbread pieces, sweets and a bag of icing, that you simply rolled to soften, snipped the end off and away you went. (with very little mess!)  Most important of all......



.......it tasted delicious!!
PS... a little shop news for you, we're running a festive 'Countdown to Christmas' over at Pretty Fabrics and Trims. You can find out more on our Facebook page.

  1. Hi Sarah
    Such lovely photo's. Clumber Park reminds me a lot of Stourhead, which is just down the road from us. Are the gardens designed by Capability brown ?
    Love the gingerbread house too.

  6. Gorgeous photos of the setting sun and long shadows. I've never made a gingerbread house (an edible one that is - I made a felt one!) but I'd love to have a go, it looks like so much fun. Yours is fab. x
