I've been doing a lot of catching up on everyone's blogs this weekend, apologies to those I haven't visited yet, I'll get there I promise :) Anyway whilst visiting Amy at Love Made My Home I noticed her Sunlit Sunday post last week, linking up with (Karen of My Little Home and Garden). Karen is hosting a link up thingy - no idea what the proper term is, sorry! - the idea being you look for the sunny moments, literal or figurative, in the week. After a rough couple of weeks (Dad ill, more on that another time), I reckon I could do with a reminder to sit up and notice the good moments in life. So this is my first Sunlit Sunday. I missed week 1 so this is week 2. But hey, who's counting.
In anticipation of writing a Sunlit Sunday post I dragged the family out for a walk, and where better than Basildon Park (Basildon Park which is where Amy works :) And no I am not stalking her!!!
I've posted about Basildon Park before, we love it there, it's a National Trust property and is open all year round. There wasn't any actual proper sunny sun but it was very mild, and there was lots of running around to be had. Seeing as it's been so mild generally this winter there were lots of flowers in bloom, (maybe some are in bloom normally at this time of year, I am not a great gardener!), but still they looked lovely. And then of course we had lunch in the cafe including scones and tea :)
Rather than waffle on I'll just show you some (ok a lot of) photos - enjoy :)
I hope you enjoyed my first Sunlit Sunday :) Thankyou Amy for the inspiration and to Karen for organizing it! You can check out who else is joining in at Karen's Sunlit Sunday
Til next time, have fun looking for your sunny moments :)
