Bank Holiday

It was bank holiday and we wanted to go somewhere not too far from home but still have a little holiday.

Somewhere, where we could see the open fields, yellow fields if possible.

Somewhere, where we could go for little walks.

Because the little feet do get tired soon...

...and pick  a bunch of wild flowers.


So pretty and relaxing. Just what we needed this extra long weekend.

So we went to camp close to Hardwick Hall. Loved this campsite. Was not loaded with caravans, thats how we prefer it.


I finished stitching this long due bunting for camping before the holiday.

I even got some time to start my new cardigan!

It's a funny yarn, not quite even, which makes it little bit difficult to keep the tension right. But it was knitting very fast. Oh! I love this yarn.

So soft and the texture is lovely. You can see in the knitting its not even yarn. It is thick and thin, have never knitted with a yarn like this one before. The sun was quite bright so the photograph doesn't do justice to the yarn.


Our vase was filled with a beautiful bunch collected on our walk. It was just perfect day for a walk and some quite reading later on. No not me but my hubby sat down with Olivia's book. Not too difficult reading Dad!

Hope you all had a enjoyable bank holiday too!

  1. You'll have to let me know where that site is - it looks lovely. xxxx

  2. This was not too far from Hardwick Hall Diane. The address is Tibshelf Cedar Farm Campsite DE55 5NP. There were only about 7 or 8 caravans during the bank holiday weekend. If you go any other time, I am sure will be just few. x

  3. What a lovely little adventure x

  4. Thanks Mrs B. It was a good break. x

  5. Looks like the perfect weekend with your lovely family. I like campsites that are quiet and you have the whole place to yourselves. X

  6. It was definitely a peaceful camping holiday Jan. x
