Holiday slide show

Hello! Did you miss me? It was pretty darn awesome exploring the world, but as Dorothy once remarked, there is no place like home. We got back on Sunday, and no only has the jetlag pretty much worn off, but the very last load of holiday washing is currently swishing away in the machine, and life is back to its regular scheduling.

I know quite a few of you followed our travels on Instagram, but for those who didn't, here are some holiday snaps. I really, REALLY loved travelling around Switzerland and the UK. If any knitting shops want to sponsor me to live and work over there, send me an email pronto!

Jungfrau in Switzerland. Cold but very, very beautiful.

Exploring the streets of London, near Marylebone.

High Tea at The Savoy. Pure, sugared-up bliss!

Hey look - it's Pemberley! Otherwise known as Lyme Park.

The ruins of St. Mary's Abbey in York.

We drove through Wales on a very wet and wildly windy day. Felt rather apt.

The harbour shops in Portree, Isle of Skye, Scotland.

The Quiraing on the Isle of Skye. There was no way I was going to try and climb that monster!

Wildflowers growing in a rock, of all things, at the Point of Sleat beach. Tough flora!

Point of Sleat beach. For most of our time there, we had this perfect beach to ourselves. Bliss!

Last but not least, Edinburgh Castle.


  1. OMG- you went to Lyme Park- this is the stately home closest to where I grew up (and spent many a Sunday afternoon walking/orienteering/sledging the grounds) and one that I always go back to visit

    Thanks for sharing those awesome photos. We went to many of the same places as you this April. I think I have an identical image of Portrea on my blog!

  3. Thanks for the beautiful pics, a bit of reminiscing for me too, of travel and times gone by!

  4. Oh how I loved following along on your instagram feed! I can only imagine what a wonderful family holiday you three had :) As soon as you're rested up and settled back into normal routines, I'd love to hear more about it!!! x

  6. Try again. That pink flowered plant on the Point of Sleat Beach is armeria. It flowers almost all year round in SA.
