The perfect end to the week . . . Burghley House

You may, or may not have seen my post from yesterday but it really put a downer on my week. I have not been feeling well this week, migraines are plaguing me at the moment and since stopping breastfeeding that ‘time of the month’ has been a killer for me. Add to that an autumnal cold (or man flu as I have called it this week) I’ve been feeling pretty pants. This morning the sun was shining and I received a text from Karin asking if we were free after school and so a plan was hatched to meet up at one of our favourite haunts, Burghley House.

After school we hopped into our cars with scooters at the ready and spent a very enjoyable later afternoon in the grounds of one of the most beautiful houses. The light was amazing, the weather was perfect . . . it was the perfect end to the week!

      We all came home with the biggest smiles on our faces (and the children went off to sleep without argument as they were all so tired) ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a beautiful house and sounds like the perfect end to a not great week. Lovely to meet up with Karin too and share the fun for you both and the children clearly get on really well. I will miss this after school time in a few weeks when the clocks turn back. Thank you for sharing your lovely photos on Country Kids.

      It’s one of our favourite places to go with the children, you can go time and time again and have different experiences. We are so lucky to have it so close. The children have all grown up together so it’s lovely spending time together. Thank you for popping by xx

      I have always been one for walking when I’m feeling blue, there’s something to be said for all that fresh air. It certainly blows away the cobwebs x
