Peak District Dreams

We have been to the Peak District and Derbyshire a few times now and every time I go I fall more and more in love with the area. This time was no different. With little larry lambs in every other field and surrounded by beautiful countryside and quaint little sleepy traditional villages it is everything I have ever dreamed of living in. For now it is just a dream....but who knows what the future holds....the very VERY far future :(

Well it was a lovely break away. We made a little visit to the town of Bakewell, home of the famous bakewell pudding and tart. It was a lovely little place where we picked up some fabulous bargains from the local market....luvly jubly! Just what bargain hunters like ourselves crave for!

A funny little moment was when we were walking in a random little field full of sheep in the little village where we were staying (in the middle of nowhere, too small even for a little village shop!). In the distance walking towards us was a young couple with a little baby. As they got closer I felt I recognised them....sure enough it was a friend from church that I spent time with at uni who had now moved away and got married! And here we were bumping into each other in the middle of nowhere! What are the chances! It was a lovely surprise :)

All in all it was a lovely mini break where the beautiful area cast more of it's magic upon us......
