Just a very quick entry to my little online weekend diary…I love rounding up what we’ve been up to so that I can look back and remember our adventures!
Last weekend we took a road trip up to Northallerton for the wedding of our friends Richard and Tara!
I’d made some confetti from the roses in the garden…although we never got around to throwing it!
After the very sweet ceremony there was a scrummy sit down meal… I couldn’t resist eating the sweeties from our favours in between courses though!
As well as the traditional wedding cake, there was also wedding pie!
We did lots of dancing, ate a late chip supper, and I got to take some of the gorgeous flowers home too!
On the Sunday we set off on an adventurous journey home, via Leyburn, where we found this stunning view!
We loved the shops in Leyburn…the wonderful independent supermarket, the galleries and a brilliant antique shop where we saw these beauties!
After Leyburn we went to view a house in Middleham. We loved it (and the castle round the corner!) but decided it’s a bit too far out for us!
This weekend we spent Saturday mooching about nearer home. We walked the dogs, had lunch in a local tea room, and did a little shopping.
We also drove to our nearest garden centre to see what we could see… which happened to include Father Christmas and this rather wonderful ‘Buddha’s Hand’ lemon tree!
As for this Sunday, we drove up to Ripon to view three houses there. The town centre was closed off for the Remembrance Day Parade at the cathedral, so we stopped off in Ripley on the way back for lunch and a walk.
We ate in the Cromwell Tea Rooms at the castle, then took the dogs to explore the grounds. We’ll definitely want to go back to explore properly!
Adam was delighted to get to try out the ‘World Famous Ripley Ice Cream’ for the first time too… despite it being pretty chilly!
Once home, we mostly relaxed and chilled. We were delighted to hear the sound of Otley Brass Band outside as we sat about though, and after racing upstairs to see over the garden hedge saw that the Remembrance Day Parade was passing.
I do hope you had a good weekend, whatever you were up to!
