going home and coming home





We have just got back from a fantastic week in Northumberland where we have done some walking, sightseeing, eating, seen family, partying and chilling out. It's been just great. I thought I would share some of our pics with you... these ones are from a place called Steel Rigg on Hadrians Wall, which has given me lots of landscape inspiration, the rolling hills, the winter colours, the ice and the wind... it was freezing but beautiful and we soon warmed up once we started trekking up the hills!! It was hard to believe that the wall has been there so long, as we imagined Roman Centurions patrolling this harsh landscape in the depths of winter, and without fleeces, thermals and goretex to keep them warm and dry!! Not my idea of fun really!!
So we are back now, back to work tomorrow, big boo, but maybe feeling a bit more up to it now my cough and cold is slowly getting better! Will post more pics and sketches as the week goes on...
