We managed a mini break last weekend opting for a weekend at Darwin Country Forest in the Derbyshire Dales. You can see how we got on here. What I wasn’t expecting though was all the snow, I know it was January and cold so perhaps I shouldn’t have been so naive. So anyway, here is how we got on in photos, enjoy.
COME ON DADDY WE’RE WAITING. We don’t normally get the Friday feels in this house but we’re off on a mini break this weekend. As soon as he Mr gets back from work that is. I am in a bit of a quandary though, we’ve been looking forward to this break for a while now which usually means it’ll be a let down. It would seem the key to parenting is low expectations. Anyways happy Friday y’all.
We arrived! We made it to Switzerland 🇨🇭. Nope definitely not there. Try Derby 🙄. We are an hour from our house and we have snow. Even more came down last night. Can’t say I was expecting that one. Anywho we’ve got a lovely little lodge @darwin_forest to call ours for the weekend. It’s basically a Swiss cabin in the mountains 🙄😂Yesterday was pretty successful, if you exclude the car sickness and bed wetting, from the kids like. Let’s hope for more of the same. Although I’ve already been awake for hours whilst everyone sleeps. Sigh. A quiet, hot coffee is my consolation price.
The snow in these parts was insane today. Road closures, crashes and skids everywhere. It was definitely a day for sitting in front of the fire. We did venture out for swimming and Sunday dinner but it’s nice to be back all comfy and cosy in front of the fire in our @darwin_forest lodge. It’s been an absolute blast this weekend, what a lovely surprise this place was 💛. Now, if someone could just hand me my voice back that would ace.
