Happy Halloween Everyone!

Halloween is by far my favourite holiday! I can't wait to be lying in bed later watching scary films with sweets! I carved my pumpkin last night, It's my little tradition every year ;) Hope everyone has a great night dressing up, drinking, partying, & of course, SCARING ;)

Sunday Morning

So I finally had my day off, It's really unfair as I get one day off a week from college & work & it just happens to fall on a sunday, which is just great because everything is closed.

As I live in a very rural area there isn't much to do anyway so me & M thought we would pop over to our local national Trust Castle to see if the gardens were open as the sun was shining. The castle is called Powis castle & it's my favourite, M is french & had never been to any National Trust places before so I thought I'd bring him here. Fortunately the castle was open as they're showing the place off before it closes for the winter season. 

It's such a beautiful place. I wish I could have taken more photo's inside but the mean old volunteers go crazy when they see a phone or a camera out because flashes can ruin the old paintings so I managed to sneak just a few.

The gardens are so beautiful They are taken care of everyday & the statues are gorgeous & the flowers are my favourites. M had to drag me away from them as I was taking to long.

The castle looks so gothic in black & white, I felt like I was re-reading Northanger Abbey.

Unfortunately my cameras on the blink so I have to make do with my Iphone. 

I hope everyone else is having a good weekend.


A very belated 21st

Nearly a month ago I turned 21! I still don't feel it. I suppose you never do! 

I had a lovely day in which mother dearest woke me up to a little sing song, the smell of coffee, & scrambled eggs. She tried to make it as reminiscent & nostalgic as my pre teen birthdays as she just can't get to grips with her "baby" aging. I had banners, pink balloons, & a table full of wrapped presents in which I was itching to open!

My family, friends, & extended family kindly treated me to some odds & ends that I have been lusting after for a while but I had asked for money as I desperately need a new computer & have my eyes set on a Macbook Air as I am a huge Apple lover.

As I live in a very rural area, there just isn't much to do at all! But a small Vineyard had popped up just down the road so off me & mother dearest went to explore! 

We had a few cheese boards & a few wine tasters, & as my first vineyard experience it was rather enjoyable, even though I know nothing about wine, but the owners were very enthusiastic & helpful to fill us in!

When I arrived home, I little too tipsy than I care to admit, oops, I was welcomed with these beautiful flowers from my boy. Unfortunately he works 18 hours a day & I didn't see much of him until he finished where he surprised me with champagne, more flowers, & some books that I've been after for awhile. 

I had such a lovely day considering I live in the middle of nowhere, my friends couldn't be there, & that I had to work in the evening! Not a wild 21st, but good enough for me.
