A little bit of the Peak District

Before going over to see one of my oldest friends get married (and partake in the old bridesmaid activity) we booked the day off to go for a bit of exploring in the Peak District.  In the morning I visited our local butchers, bakers etc to put together a bit of a picnic and off we set.  In typical sods law fashion there were two major accidents on our route which meant some pretty hefty navigation from me and it ended up taking 6 hours to get to there instead of 3.  The journey we planned meant a detour from the route we would have taken just to go to the wedding venue and hindsight meant we could have just gone straight to the venue and planned a picnic around that area instead which was just as nice.

Instead we picnicked at a service station and spent half an hour walking a route I had planned to spend more time at.

It was very lovely though and the drive through the Peak District was great - it felt like we were in Scotland again and we are very excited to go back and show our children how great Britain is.



These pictures were taken when I was exactly 20 weeks pregnant.  I was feeling pretty amazing and only having a little bump to take care of.  I'm now over 22 weeks pregnant and already I'm aching, tired and generally feeling a bit rubbish - and so it begins!! I think I've got away with it so far.  I'm now desperate to get the next few months of work finished and sit myself on the sofa and wait for the baby to come.

We have some nice things planned in the meantime though to take my attention away from it all.  Mark turns 30 in a few weeks and we've got a real treat of a weekend planned I can't wait I might be more excited for this than I was for our Menorca holiday and I worry I'm more excited than the birthday boy!!

We also had a really nice weekend away back home seeing family which I'll blog pretty shortly, not forgetting a few snaps of the wedding we went to as well.


  1. I love Monday's as it normally means a blog post from you of what lovely things you've been up to at the weekend :) That black and white shot of Mark is fun!
