Country Walks and Blue Skies

I realised the other day that it has been a while since I last did a post. Unfortunately I've not been very well, so my days have consisted of vegging out on the sofa or in bed feeling rather sorry for myself! It didn't help that it has been gorgeous weather all week and I haven't been able to enjoy it, until yesterday that is. Me and my Mr decided that some good old fresh english air would do me some good, so we got Eden wrapped up and went for a drive.
As we drove through the stunning Derbyshire countryside, we spotted a lake in the middle of some fields and decided to investigate. After driving down a drive, we ended up at Longshaw Lodge, a stunning old building that was owned by the Duke of Rutland. The lodge was originally built as a shooting box for the then Duke for when he wanted to go shooting. The Longshaw Lodge is the central focal point of the vast Longshaw Estate.


Bit of history for you there :)
These are some of the photo's.






















I'm seriously hoping that this weather is here to stay, there will definitely be more days like this :)


I hope everyone has a lovely weekend xx
