We're back!

Well, after a month in France (was it really a month? I'm not convinced, it felt far shorter), we've finally returned to cool and drizzly home. Looking at the positives, we have hundreds of fab memories and in some ways it's good to be home (mainly because it's lovely to have cooler temperatures that allow you to sleep through the night and we've missed Gizzy dog a ridiculous amount- we became dog perv's in France and petted any dog that would let us near it).

To be honest, I can't be faffed just yet to deal with the mountains of photos to share with you (I'll be selective, I promise), so instead I thought I'd tell share with you the weekend away for my parent's ruby wedding anniversary...

We spent two days in Middleton in Teesdale (in County Durham), staying at the Forresters Bed and Breakfast. We'd been there before with Simon and Kim as a birthday present for Simon last year. The place itself is sweet with each room individually decorated and the food in the restaurant is too die for!

We spent the first day walking at High Force Waterfall and the second at Raby Castle, Ben loved getting close (but not too close) to all the gorgeous baby deer leaping around at that time of year. 

I'd say that as weekends go, it was pretty much perfect!
