Our Holiday :-)

Good evening

Well once again it's been over a week since I last posted but I haven't been crafting because we've had a lovely few days away in Stratford-upon-Avon and Gloucestershire.  We went to Stratford on a day trip back in May when we were away in Oxford for the bank holiday weekend and liked it so much decided to return.  However, it's the first time we had been to Gloucestershire.  We had 2 days in Stratford before travelling down to Brockworth which is well known locally for  the annual rolling of Double Gloucester Cheese down Coopers Hill!  We also went to Warwick Castle, Symonds Yat, Ross on Wye, Gloucester Quays and Bourton on the Water.  We also managed to squeeze in some swimming at the hotel!  It was lovely to spend some quality time together and the weather was pretty good ... it did rain a couple of days but had dried out by early afternoon.  

Anyway because I haven't made any cards for the last week I thought I would share a few of our holiday photographs.

I hope to catch up with you all soon ... once I have tackled the washing and ironing!

Hi Lisa...

You went to a fabulous area of the country and your pics brought back some good memories.... Not been in Warwick Castle yet - was it worth the massive entrance fee??

Thanks for sharing your pics.
