Chatsworth House

After a very lazy pj day yesterday we all decided to have a little trip over to Chatsworth House.  We all got  suitably wrapped up warm with wellies, gloves, scarfs etc.  When we got there it was pouring it down and it was freezing. 

The Court Yard did look really pretty with trees surrounding the fountain and a choir singing carols in the background.  You can't tell from this photo but it was packed, really packed.  K said he would take the dog for a walk whilst we had a browse around the shops. 

K was suitably wrapped up and Betty was sporting her fetching wellies.

Lots of people sheltering from the rain

My lovely girls

Chatsworth is a lovely place to visit, today it was just a little too cold, wet and crowded - but we had fun, the girls laughed lots, dylan got a walk albeit short, we had a quick scoot around the shops and felt very festive.  Do you know it was £3.50 for a hot chocolate with the works - blimey £17.50 for five drinks, we didn't indulge we called at Tesco on the way home and bought all the ingredients to make our own. 

here they are yummy and with a shot of Bailey's in it too.

Happy Days.

Following the cold and rain you deserved a hot chocolate and how right you are to wait and make it at home.
Wishing you a great week

I just love Chatsworth :) we were invited to look around the house on Friday night to see the christmas decorations and listen to the carol singers, we had a lovely meal after, and we dind't have to pay! great idea with the drinks, they are expensive here.

It really did rain a lot - we went to Sharrow Vale Christmas Market - I felt so sorry for all the stall holders. Your Girlies look lovely - I bet you had your hands full when they were all tiny together. xxxxx
