This week my '10 Things Tuesday' is very special- 10 things I'm looking forward to, as I go home for the summer holiday.
This is the view from my parent's kitchen window. Our house is surrounded by fields. My own house is rented out whilst I live abroad- so home for me is 'Home, Home'- My parents and grandma's houses that we have had since 1973.
Meeting up with friends will be a big bonus over the summer. Friends from my school days, nursing days, workplace and the US. Finding time to see them all might be tricky, but I'll try.
4. Afternoon Tea
It's funny the things you want when you can't get them- proper afternoon tea, with scones, jam and cream. Sandwiches, little cakes etc- all those lovely delectable things- whether it be for morning coffee, 'Ladies who Lunch' or afternoon tea- I can't wait:)
5. Days out and about
Whether it be the Lake District, Scotland or anywhere else for that matter. I'm looking forward to visiting old haunts and new places.
6. Wide open Spaces
Living so near to the lakes and Scotland means that I have a world of wide open spaces to explore. It will be great just to get out and about.
One particular highlight will be the annual Rewind Festival. I'll be there singing along to all those 80's tunes although I won't (Unlike many) be wearing some dubious 80's clothing!
So looking forward to visiting cute little craft and gift shops.
I love camping and I'm looking forward to spending some nights under canvas. Unfortunately,
This year my dad isn't too well, so my mum and I won't be able to have our annual camping trip- Instead it might just be me- unless I can drum up some others who are mad enough to want to spend an English Summer in a tent- English Summer = Rain!
No visit home will be the same without good old fashioned home cooked food. Cumberland Sausages of course, but also rhubarb, fish and chips, steak pie, bacon, cheese, fresh bread, scones...etc etc...
So many things to look forward to... The count down begins!
