  1. Visiting from Sandra's :)

    The Tour de France came through our township yesterday. It reminded me of what a beautiful bit of country we live in. Where abouts did you like in England?

    Your photo is lovely. :)

    1. Thanks for visiting Sarah! I used to live in West Yorkshire (very near to Steeton/Keighley). I certainly miss seeing the spectacular countryside outside of my window every day.

  2. Yum your menu as always, looks amazing. Love your photo, how pretty :)

    Hope you're having a great Monday so far, and wishing you a good rest of week.

    1. Thank you for the sweet words Sandra! We saw the deer on the way back from my in-laws home. Have a wonderful week.
