Can’t Stop The Holiday Spam! – My Sunday Photo

Sorry, I know, more holiday spam! But New England is so beautiful, especially with the sun out and the snow gleaming.

Look at the icicles on the building to the left! We spent a lot of time spotting spectacular icicles!

We love the town of Littleton, New Hampshire. It is the hometown of Eleanor H Porter, the author of Pollyanna. They have a statue of Pollyanna outside the library in town, and this year the lovely addition of the yellow Pollyanna flags on the lampposts. I like to think of myself as a bit of a Pollyanna, so this is particularly endearing to me!

New Hampshire in the Sunshine- My Sunday Photo

We’ve just spent the most amazing week in New England. We love this part of the world, we were even married here.

The main reason for the trip was to ski, but we’ve done some sight seeing too. There have been some snowy days, but isn’t it lovely when the sky turns bright blue in contrast to the crisp white snow?

Books Galore – My Sunday Photo

We’ve been having a massive book clear-out, and have a post coming soon about it!

In the meantime, we’ve shared some images on social media from a fantastic place we discovered a couple of weeks ago, Barter Books in Alnwick. It is inside an old railway station, and has toy trains going around on tracks above the book shelves, plus vintage seating, open fires, and a waiting room with tea and coffee.

We were there again on Friday, and will definitely be regular visitors now! We’ve even traded in some books of our own.

Wouldn’t you want to be a regular visitor to a bookshop this great?

Reception At Balmoral – My Sunday Photo

Our Sunday Photo this week is a throwback one – to memories of our wedding reception at Balmoral Castle. If you saw our Burns Night post this week, you would have seen that we held our wedding reception on the 250th Anniversary of Robert Burns’ birth. What a very special day to have a Burns Night supper, and at a very special venue. OK, it was just in the Piper’s Hall, but our guests got a tour of the castle, and we got to take some photos on the lawn too!

We had our actual wedding in New England in the Fall. ‘Back home’ we lived close to Balmoral at the time,  so to have a big party for all our friends and family when we returned was just amazing. Hope you enjoy sharing our memories!
