Well it was time for our first holiday of the year. The destination was North Yorkshire, one of our favourite locations. With this years winter being much harsher then the last few years it was decided that our first holiday would be in the car.
We had booked a week in a cabin in Griffon Forest, just the two of us.
Its the perfect romantic getaway. Large Jacuzzi bath, hot tub outside, chocolates and a bottle of Cava waiting for your arrival, its something we can definitely recommend.
The first day saw us have a trip to Castle Howard, while the second we spend round York, Caroline found a quilt shop and we also visited a quilt museum.
We made good use of the hot tub and one night we even had snow! That did not stop us using the hot tub. Snow on the ground, gentle snow falling and us sat in the hot tub drinking a bottle of fine Champagne we just happened to have brought with us.
After a most restful and enjoyable holiday we had a joint birthday party to attend. The Sunday morning of the party saw me at at work at 07:30, upgrading some of our customers UNIX’ appliances, that all went well and it was a quick ride home to collect Caroline and then off to the party.
It was a full family get together and much chocolate cake was eaten!
Happy Birthday Sofia and Ethan!
The end of the month saw us making a shopping trip to Nottingham to spoil ourselves a little, as usual we ended up getting very little, were not very good at shopping but we had fun anyway, a nice meal out and a nice but tiring day.
