I didn't really feel like updating to be honest. But I'm sat here watching The X Factor, so figured I could do this at the same time.. My mind's not really in it at the moment to be honest. We've had some sad family news yesterday & I can't really think about anything else.

This is just a quick, half-hearted post to be honest - I do apologise. Yet again. I know. I'm crap. And that's why I'm losing followers too! Oops. Oh well. On the flip side though, hi to my newer followers - my blog will at some point be a bit better, hopefully!

Right, I said in my last post that I'd been to Blackpool last week & spent a day in the Lake District? Well here's a few pics from that day :)

I took these pictures in Grasmere (where William Wordsworth is buried, fact fans!)

I'm loving these autumnal colours at the moment, & those first couple of pics sum them up for me really - I am being inspired by those colours whilst shopping (so have obviously got LOTS of things to show you at some point..!)

These next pics were taken when we were on a boat cruise across Lake Windermere - it was such a gorgeous day. We were so lucky :)

So there's just a few I thought I'd share with you :)

Halloween. Yeah. Don't really do Halloween in my house. Never have! We do actually have plans for tomorrow night though, but totally un-Halloween related! We've got tickets to see Dara O'Briain, which we've been really looking forward to. Not sure that anyone's really in the mood anymore, but hopefully it'll be good..

I'm going to leave this there - hope everyone's good.

Take care,



  1. no need to apologize! i've been feeling like that recently, like i'm not posting enough, but at the end of the day it's our blog and we can post what we want, when we want :) the colours in the first photograph are beautiful, i think the colours this autumn are the best yet. i can't stop gazing at the trees when i'm out and about, aha. sounds like you have had a lovely time, i hope you have had a great half term! xx

  2. sorry to hear about that missus :( hope everything is ok... sending you a hug through the blogosphere! thank you for sharing those lovely pics, I wish autumn in scotland would dry up a bit so I can enjoy it! crisp leaves on the ground rather than soggy ones. anyways, enjoy mr o'briain and an extra hour in bed tomorrow morning xx

  3. Ooh I went to see Dara on Thursday and he was brilliant! Hope you enjoy him.

    Sorry to hear that you're having a hard time at the moment hun. Have a virtual *hug* from me.

  4. The lake district is so beautiful.

    Sending you lots of love and cuddles x

  5. Sorry about your sad news :( hope you're ok though; be strong! I've been to Lake Windermere a few times on camping trips but spent more time IN the water rather than floating on top of it :/ x

  6. hope you are ok my dear.. dont worry about posting.. some things are more important! :) im off to watch the x factor from last night now..gotta love sky plus :) x

  7. I hope things pick up for you very soon, lovely. Those photographs are stunning, I love all the colours in them.

  8. I love seeing photographs like these, I have never been to the Lake District but desperatly really want to go, hopefully sometime in the next year.

    Hope you are okay, my follower numbers always seem to go up and down like snakes and ladders, but really it doesn't bother me too much, if somebody doesn't want to read anymore then fine!

    Can't wait to hear about those new purchases x

  9. Chin up, sweetie! I'm sure things will improve soon. Love the pictures. I used to go to Grasmere as a kid on walking holidays. Grasmere gingerbread is gorgeous. xxx

  11. Hiya! Sorry I haven't commented in so long, i've been super busy with work and stuff!
    The lake district is beautiful. It's fairly near where i live too!
    I'm sorry to hear about your news - i hope everythings fine, and don't worry about not posting! I've hardly posted in ages apart from this past week, i just have had zilch motivation.
    Who do you want to win the xfactor?! I HATE cher lloyd!

  18. HEY :) I've had a look for you but can't find the HOPE or BELIEVE necklace in silver, but I'll keep looking. I've got the Teapot coming in silver and also a gorgeous silver and turquoise Feather that looks very native american :) Can't wait! Just let me know if you want one, I'd love to see something on your blog :) Hope you post something soon xx

  19. Don't feel bad! I was feeling guilty about not updating for months but then I thought blogging should be fun! We shouldn't feel pressured to do it or worry about losing readers....I'm pretty sure I only have a handful left!

    Hope things begin to look up for you soon x
