Scandinavian Love

I have recently come back from a trip to Ireland (I'll share a few pics soon!), We had a great time there, but  whilst I was in the airport I felt an ache whenever I saw the Netherlands, Sweden, or Denmark on the list of departures. I haven't been able to stop thinking about living in one of these beautiful countries. I loved Amsterdam but I think I really want to live in Stockholm one day (I think it will be awesome, like living in Ikea 24/7 ;) 

& the worst thing is that my Pinterest feed is full of Scandinavian style! So I thought I would share a few pictures that really make me want to move to an edgy, apartment in Stockholm where it's okay to eat lots of cheese & dress cool.

How amazing is the traditional fireplace?^

My boyfriend & I have decided to do a big move next year, we have our sights set on somewhere, I won't say where just yet, just for a year then I get to pick where we can live! Can you guess where I'm choosing? ;)

Crumble Castle

 On saturday I looked after my bosses little girl, Rocky. I asked her what we could do for the day she shouted crumble castle. Crumble castle is what the residents of the nearest local town call the ruin castle that is housed on the hills above the village.

I won't expose the name & place for privacy reasons as we live in a very rural area. 

We got into our boots as it was a bit wet & windy & got ready to rock & roll.

This is Matts vegetable garden. Rocky has been given the task of de-weeding it for him.

& off we went.

This is the view of my town. This is it. I wasn't joking when I told you it was rural...

I told rocky to watch out for dragons! She replied she wasn't scared.

Under these boards is a well but of course I told rocky it was a dungeon.

We finally decided to head back as it was starting to rain & thought it would be a good idea to try a cafe in the town.

This is the cosy little deli/cafe in the town. Everything is freshly made in the morning but it goes fast!!

Rocky got impatient waiting for her brownie.

I love our little walking trips! I'm already thinking of places to go next!
