Hello, Everyone, I’m Back
Did you miss me? Feels like it has been ages since my last post. I have been up to quite a bit so I will update you and with all the last photos on my phone, that I have to go with it. First of all, I have been at my boyfriend’s for a long weekend (wish there was a different word for boyfriend as it makes him sound like he is 12 years old; which he definitely isn’t).
Last Photos On My Phone
This is a beautiful rose that I received with an equally beautiful poem. I am sharing the rose with you but not the poem as I want that to stay my own. This also came with a bottle of my favourite perfume so feeling very spoilt and loved.
I took my partner to meet my parents on their narrow boat “Cor Blimey” named after my amazing late grandfather; it was his favourite saying. My partner and I are seriously considering getting a widebeam narrowboat to live on up North and build a lodge in a few years ready for retirement. While I was there I actually saw two beautiful rainbows; one full rainbow and one part rainbow. I am not sure if I have mentioned this before but I adore rainbows and whenever I see one I feel like it is a sign that I am on the right path. It could not have come at a better time.
While we were on the boat my youngest sister, husband and children visited which was lovely. Living so far away from each other it is always lovely to meet up. Time seems to be going so quickly.
We were just on the way back to my partners home when we noticed this chap walking down the street. Think he is a long way from home.
I thought it was about time I shared a selfie of the two of us. This was taken Saturday at Donnas Nook. For anyone who does not know Donnas Nook is a place in Lincolnshire where sealions come to give birth. They return this time every year and this year there were 1800 of them. You can get so close to them but obviously not allowed to touch as they can bite and badly. Quite a few had just given birth before we arrived.
As you can see in the photo above the cub is quite chunky and the mother has slimmed down a lot from the rich milk she provides. She will, therefore, be leaving and going back to see after doing her job.
These two are about ready to give birth. As you can see they are very close to the boundary as a lot are so you can see them in all their beautiful glory.
As you can see in the photo above the sealion cub is now very large and his coat is changing from the creamy white fur to that of an adult sealion.
If you are ever in the area at this time a year you must go and visit the sealions; you won’t regret it. There are also tea and coffee facilities; I had a hot chocolate as I was freezing. Make sure you wrap up warm.
My apologies for the poor quality of the photo. This is the building in which the officers lived who went on the “dam busters raid”. It is now a hotel and a beautiful looking one it is too. In the area is also a decommissioned runway last used by the RAF in the second world war. It gave me goosebumps when we drove down it. A small glimpse of the view of those very brave men who gave their lives doing their duty.
This decommissioned church was shown to me Saturday afternoon and was told that this is where my partner wants to marry me. It is a beautiful extremely old church which goes back to the Doomsday Book. It is not in use now and hasn’t been for a long time but the plan is to clean it out, fill it with candles and wildflowers and have a wedding in it with close members of the family. There is room outside for a marquee for the reception. You can not tell from the photo but the area around this church is full of archaeology which is a bit of a passion of mine so it couldn’t be a better place.
Not only do I have the most generous, loving, caring, romantic boyfriend he can cook too and I mean really cook. His bolognese was the best I have ever tasted. With the exception of an Indian, he cooked for me every day and felt like a princess. And yes there was bound to be a photo of food in my photos as usual.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and I just want to say; make the most of every day you don’t know when they will end. Live for today, don’t ever give up on your dreams and cherish every second you have with loved ones.
