At last I am back!! Sorry for my long absence! Unfortunately, we had yet another death - my side of the family this time and after this I just never seemed to get round to blogging (only reading others).  But here I am!!!

So today................

we decided to go to Leeds Castle 

Once you have paid the entrance fee, you can go back as many times as you want over the period of a year.  There are lots of events that are included in the ticket price (and a few that aren't).  The event that was on today was a Home and Garden show

A good variety of stalls

 including yummy foods - which my son and hubby treated themselves to!


There's me and my daughter in the blue cardigans - examining the pretties!


Lots of pretty goodies to drool over............but I was really controlled.  There were lots of things I liked, but nothing that really jumped out at me - so I restrained myself.  We have house projects going on and holidays booked - so only really really nice or necessary stuff can be purchased at the moment!

We had a really nice day though, we wandered round the stalls, had a picnic, enjoyed the sun and then walked some more, round the grounds.  


We are all sitting here chilling out now (with The Voice), all that walking and fresh air has worn us out!  We deliberately did not explore the maze, grounds or actual castle as we are saving that for another day trip in the summer.

Hope you managed to enjoy some long awaited sunshine too!!


  1. Looks like a fab day out and how great is it that you pay once and can go back any time in a year - thats brill! Scarlett x

  2. Glad to see you back, but sorry to hear of another bereavement. That is good that you can go back as often as you want!

  3. How lovely! That is one of the places on my 'to visit' list.
    That peacock is magnificent! :0)

  4. you are having a tough year so far.

    Lovely photos, what a gorgeous day out. We spent some time in Kent earlier this year, it was wonderful. x

  5. I'm so sorry to hear you have been having such a sad time of late. Glad to see you are all enjoying what looks to be a wonderful day out though. I am envious... Such a pretty place!!

    Thank you for leaving the kind comment on my crochet... And good luck to you for tues when you join SW... It was a bit daunting at first for me but once you get your head round what you can and can't have it becomes second nature! And there are so many lovely recipes too. Have fun!!!
