Leeds Castle Visit

I love sunny days in England. In fact I love sunny days anywhere, but when I’m in England, I like it in England!

What I love even more is sharing the lovely sunny days with people you like to hang out with.

After school drop off the other day, Karen (one of the mums from our school) her little girl, Caitlin, Anabelle and myself got in the car and headed to Leeds Castle for the morning/lunch/early afternoon. We had THE perfect day for it. It’s April so the place was almost empty with no groups of people, and plenty of parking. Not to mention we couldn’t have asked for a better, sunnier, warmer day. Proper summer’s day actually!

The girls were absolute angels and enjoyed each other’s company. We could even walk through the castle and look at all the rooms before going to the castle playground.

I can’t believe we have never gone before! It’s a beautiful place that I think everyone should visit who comes to Kent.

It really was a lovely day out. I hope you enjoyed looking at some of the photos I’ve taken. (obviously not the areal photos)



Aww… Ian took the camera with him, so I won’t be able to take pictures of anything recent until after the 22nd of this month. But yaaay for back up photos on the Mac! (Yay for Macs for that matter! Aren’t they great? I was a pc girl till last year but I am now a converted Mac girl!)

You know how sometimes you wish you were so rich and famous (topped off with lovely loveliness of course) that a whole village would be named after you? Well… we’re neither famous nor rich (however we ARE lovely lovely!) but still have a village named after us! … ok, ok, so it’s not named after us per se, but how cool is this??

This gorgeous little village is in Switzerland. Ian and I drove across the Alps in May 2008 when we visited ‘Lavey’. The trip itself was absolutely fantastic. We drove topless… hang on I need to clarify this before this site becomes PG rated!… Ian has a beautiful veteran ’73 MGB, which is convertible. When we take the top of the MG off we call ourselves ‘topless’. There! … So we drove topless all the way through from the UK to Hungary as the weather was just wonderful. A bit chilly occasionally but not a cloud in the sky. It would have been a crime to put the top on really! We had proper panoramic views and …. I WANT TO DO IT AGAIN! Great quality time too, it was!

Seriously, how beautiful is this? Or this?

Come to think of it, we do need to do it again, but the other way around! Hungary to the UK. Good… that means I get to take photos from the other side of the road too! 🙂
