Im back !

Good afternoon,
Well where to start really ! I have just come back from a wonderful break in the peak district and wow what a place. We stayed in a gorgeous lodge with a hot tub. 

We had wonderful days out at Chatsworth house and if you love our history and finery you should definitely go. 

We took a cable car ride up to Abrahams heights ! And yes im not good with heights but getting better.

Well evenings were for relaxing. It was so quiet it was lovely. I took a bit of crafty supplies with me and crafted in the evenings. I made my charity kit from the talented Christine Emberson. I love it.

It was a sad build up to my hols as someone wrote off my little old car on the m6 ! And at the moment im looking for a new one. But the hol was just what I needed after that . Thanks for taking the time to look. Take care xxx
