Easter, Everton & The Elstone's House

Firstly, I hope you have all had a lovely Easter weekend and bank holiday. Here's what I've been up too…. 
P.S. Sorry for the no-so-great photo quality, my camera died and I restored to my iPhone. 
On route to Manchester, we stopped of for a tasty Sunday lunch and a beautiful country Pub, just outside of Lancaster. And once our tummies were full it was off to meet my family at Everton Football Club (my Uncle Robert is CEO). 
Although my boyfriend would kill me for saying this... I'm really no big football fan - but knowing many would give their right arm to be in the directors box at such a big game, I couldn't really complain. 
 And although at some points I was completely unaware of what was going on I tried my best to look the part in my blue dress. 
 After a 2-0 win it was off to the board room for a glass of champagne to celebrate! I even got to meet Roberto Martinez's little girl… (I though is may be inappropriate to start taking photos). You'll have to take my word for it…. she was adorable!
After leaving the match, we went straight to a local Italian for more delicious food and wine. And a great family night never ends without a good laugh at the old photo albums. 

On Monday morning I got to meet the newest addition to the family Cruz Carter Taylor… my cousins little bundle of joy - along with my other Auntie, Uncle and my crazy but loveable Granny for a beautiful day in the Garden. 

I love family days!
My Easter Vacation is getting better and better.


My Happy Places

Myself, my mum and my little pup Archie love walking down our secret track behind our house.  Oh and yesterday, I climbed a popular mountain route just a few miles from my house...

And the view from the top…

It's good to be home. Where is your happy place?


Do You Want To Go To The Seaside?

I've just had the most perfect weekend with my lovely boy in his cosy flat in Leigh-on-Sea. Nothing better than a bit of English seaside. It's officially Easter Vacation time. 
What's everyone doing?  


Great Britain

I'd be lying if I told you that over the four years I lived in Australia I didn't miss the UK. Yes… the sun shines everyday, the beaches are out of this world and having a pool in your back garden is pretty dreamlike. But there truly is nothing like home.
Keswick, Cumbria
I live in the Lake District. And coming home to all the Autumn leaves and having to wear a coat for the first time in four years was a heartwarming feeling. 
The View From Our Cottage (Appleby-In-Westmorland)
    And to my delight this was followed by much missed snow! Inches and Inches of it for the most perfect white Christmas, reunited with our family. 
My Granny, Auntie Rachel, Mum and Lovely Cousin Niamh
As those of you in the UK know, once Spring was over we had one of the best summers Britain had seen. Perhaps not Australian temperatures but I still managed a day or two at  a very pebbly beach.   
Beautiful Brighton
The sunshine meant lots of lovely day trips, travelling all over the country in my little car to explore with Thomas. 
Camden Markets, London
There is nowhere quite like England. No matter how far I travel and the time length I'm away….. When I board my connecting flight and hear a lovely English accents there is nothing better than knowing I'm going home.
