Munich

We went to Munich for a long weekend in December (an age ago now!) We had such a wonderful time visiting the Christmas markets, beer houses and even managed a trip to Neuschwanstein Castle - definitely googled how to spell that!

A few pics of our weekend.





Neuschwanstein Castle was truly breath taking. When we arrived the tickets had already sold out to go inside (bad planning on my part!) but it was still worth the train journey.





A couple of Gluhweins at the Christmas markets before we head off home!

Dad's 50th in Dublin

I'm not gonna lie, these pictures mainly contain Guinness and me looking very excited (maybe because of the Guinness!)

We all flew off to Dublin to celebrate my Dad's 50th! 

I have been to Dublin once before (on my work's 5th year anniversary) and I love the place so I was very much looking forward to going back with my gang!

Me and Mum - first Guinness of the weekend.



My Peter and his Mum on the way to another pub - surprise surprise!



We popped into the Guinness Factory while we were there. Definitely worth a visit. 




Looking a little worse for wear before we head off home.

What I've been up to...

I’m baaaaaaack with a few photo’s of the past few weeks!



Peter’s sister Rosie turned 21 and we celebrated ‘Alice in Wonderland’ style with afternoon tea in the garden. The Mad Hatter even joined us. 




My wonderful best friend Sophie got married a few weeks ago and I was one of four bridesmaid. It was such a beautiful day, it was hard to choose just a few pictures! 


We celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary with a meal out to San Carlo’s.



Our work’s summer do was at York Races this year. They always spoil us on our ‘do’s’ ! We had our own box with a fab view of the finishing line.

I had so many compliments on my dress too which is always a confidence booster! It is from Chi Chi – here! 



A day out in Bakewell with Peter. We haven’t had a trip out in what seems like AGES! 



Rosie graduated! She is now a fully fledged teacher and will be starting at her new Primary School in September. Go Rosebud! (Sporting my fav dress again!)

We are having a night away in Chester tonight. 

HAPPY WEEKEND!

Alnwick Castle

So I am now 24 years old! I have had a lovely birthday weekend with my family and have been truly spoilt.

Every year Peter surprises me with a day out for my birthday. He woke me up on Saturday morning and I rushed to get ready to find out where we were going.

Alnwick Castle!

I went to Northumberland for the weekend last month but the castle wasn't open so I was pretty gutted about it. Sneaky Peter remembered and brought me here for my Birthday day out.

We arrived at lunch time and had a quick stop for a bite to eat in the village. We went to The Olive Branch which I would highly recommend. The best ham and cheese I have EVER had and the staff are just wonderful.

After we refueled we went over to the Castle for a afternoon of pretending I was half princess and half student at Hogwarts.












The castle is really magnificent and there is so much to see. They have small rooms here and there for you to go in and read about the family who live there and have lived there.




It was slightly windy on top!


Some of the Harry Potter scenes were filmed at Alnwick Castle (the broomstick lesson in Philosophers Stone where Malfoy throws Neville’s Remembrall) which is one of the main (only) reasons I wanted to go so badly.

I didn't know though, that the Downton Abbey Christmas 2014 Special was filmed there too.


Obviously the icing on the cake for me right there and I was wondering when I could move in!




If you are ever in the area it is definitely worth a visit, even if you aren't pretending to be a Hogwarts student!
