The last couple of weeks here in the north west of England have been glorious. Beautiful sunny weather which just makes you want to get out and enjoy the countryside. I have certainly taken advantage of it by visiting the Lake District just over a week ago followed by Rufford Old Hall yesterday. I actually remembered to take my camera with me so here are some pictures for you. Enjoy!

I am hoping that the good weather continues for a lot longer, although I have to confess that it’s hard to settle down to write when the sunshine is tempting me outside! Wherever you are, I hope the weather is as kind to you.
love,
Jennifer.
