A short break from routine

Good evening everyone.

I have managed to get a few days away from work - just a couple of days but added on to the weekend that makes four whole days so I am very, very happy!

So this afternoon DH and DD and I pottered off to one of our favourite places to have a gentle stroll - Matlock Bath in Derbyshire:

Lots of water...

 ...lots of greenery...

...and a wonderful Victorian bridge, marking the Jubilee in 1887...

I love to got to this little village, it is lovely at any time of year.
We treated ourselves to some chips, sitting outside the café watching the world go by, then also had an ice cream....
A lovely afternoon, very much needed!!!


  1. So glad you are having a pleasant break in your busy routine, Helen! Thanks for letting me see and enjoy some of what you saw and enjoyed :)

  2. We love it too....always feel like I'm at the seaside...very bizarre! Just wish it wasn't so busy! :) x

  3. Looks like a perfect place to visit!
    Have a great weekend,

  4. I went to Matlock Bath in 2000, fell in love with it, a wonderful place. Hope maybe to go back one day. Pleased you enjoyed your trip,
    Joy xx
