A YOUNG SOUL IN YOUNG SOLES

I TOOK Elsie to Yorkshire Sculpture Park a week or so ago. It was the perfect place for her to scamp about, run amok and ‘break in’ her amazing new boots.

I’VE been on many holidays in my lifetime. And I’ve seen some truly wonderful places. But I don’t think a holiday has ever touched me quite so deeply as this one – a short two day stay in a beautiful painted gypsy caravan in The Lakes. We stayed in the spectacular caravan at The Blue House Bed & Breakfast in Ayside, a beautiful location just ten minutes or so from
