Can you believe it, my last post was about Summer finally arriving?! Well, I can now confirm it has pretty much said it's good-byes.... to the residents of NE Scotland anyway! Short lived as always, we've flaming snow forecast for September, I kid you not! My tan is fading faster than a Big Brother evictee, how depressing!

It has been a VERY busy few months indeed, freelance jobs have been coming in thick and fast, hence my extended absence from Blogland. But I am happy to report it wasn't all work, work, work..... amongst all the craziness we did manage to get away for a few weeks. Armed with a tent, map and gig tickets, we jumped in the car and set off round Britain, stopping in past Cumbria, Bristol, Somerset, Wiltshire, Hampshire, Sussex, Dorset, Devon, Cornwall and Yorkshire. Ok yes, I did pack slightly more..... well, a LOT more! But where exactly does it state camping in the Great Outdoors ultimately means slumming it? 

For two nights of our trip we decided to leave our modest 5-man in the car in favour of 'Glamping' in a Bell tent at the oh so cool Jollydays, Buttercrambe! En-route to Scotland, I found an amazing last minute deal on Facebook.... then 24hrs later, were firing up the stove in a wonderful Yorkshire woodland! The whole site was a shabby-chic dream!! While my husband was suitably impressed, I myself, being the Cath Kidston obsessive, was beside myself with excitement. With a big pan of Chilli simmering away, a few glasses of vino on the decking, we were in heaven!

More holiday snaps to come..... I've literally thousands still to edit! But don't worry, I won't bore you with them all! And I promise not to leave it so long next time! :) x
