My Sunday

My friend and I drove up to Hexham in lovely Northumberland on Sunday. Upon our arrival, we found a little delicatessen and coffee shop where I ate a Belgian waffle with ice-cream, cream and maple syrup along with a cappuccino.


I saw a double rainbow.


We then headed to Close House Country Club.


And admired the Christmas tree in the entrance with the gifts underneath.


I really love how the house is decorated.












We then went into the bar for a glass of prosecco.






And into the drawing room for a light bite.








And a final wander around before leaving for home.

  21. Beautiful images! I love the interior of the house... it reminds me of some of the older mansions I've seen in the UK which have been restored into hotels. And I'm glad you like your carbs ;-) (so do I for the record). The food looks amazing.

    Really glad to see you put up your Starbucks mug decoration a few posts back. I did too, but all my friends seem to think I'm nuts for hanging it on my Christmas tree...
