Good Morning one and all tis week 2 of Rocking Your World 2014 - how's this week been?
The journey down not being too stressful was definitely a positive - I don't normally drive but it made life a whole lot easier taking both our cars this time so I volunteered.
My sister keeping me company on the way down, another set of eyes on the road is always appreciated and definitely on the way back Sunday night when it was raining and dark, I'm not one to enjoy nighttime driving even less so when it's raining - so a big thank you to my sister.
I lovely clean lodge to stay in.
The weather being kind when we wanted to go out and actually getting time to walk, we had a walk on Friday, a really long walk on Saturday and another decent walk on Sunday - simple pleasures but the fresh air was bliss.
Finding something on the menu at the pub we could snack on that fell in with our plan - phew!
Said 13 year old getting the most out of his bike - fabulous stuff if I'm honest. Sometimes we hire the bikes and they get used a bit, this last weekend he really went for it - going out, cycling for a while and then popping back, think he liked the additional freedom!
The swimming pool, there is something magical about being in a warm pool outside, in Britain in January looking at the stars!
Lovely simple meals, we didn't take too much food, worked it in with our plan and didn't have a boot full of food items on the way back - spot on!
Woodburning stove and toasted marshmallows!
The world's best marshmallow fight in quite some time.
Hubby attempting to sneak me for a romantic drink just the two of us and ending up in the middle of the loudest kids disco - you have to laugh!
Said 13 year old easing himself back into school life.
Accepting that redundancy is looming and there's sod all I can do about it.
Hubby and son for helping keep top side of the house.
Some lovely homecooked food.
A day off with hubby on our own on Monday - we only wandered the shopping centre but it was lovely having a day off together.
And finally my big grateful this week is hubby not thinking i'm barking mad when I've asked if we can go for a walk in the evening, despite it being pitch black (and raining last night) we have gone, just half an hour and you come back feeling so much more positive and upbeat!
So there we have it, I would love to have shared a million photos from the week but we hardly took any and that includes when we were at Center parcs, not sure why - think we were too busy just enjoying the break.
So as it's photo light this week I'll leave you with a layout.
This one from a visit to Attingham Park, it was beautiful but absolutely freezing - hence the title!
Have a fabulous weekend and week ahead
