Off to Cheshire

Sorry this is a bit late in the day posting but I've been enjoying the beautiful weather out in my garden too much to sit inside and toil away at a blog post! ;)

My two centre holiday continued as I left Lancashire for Cheshire to visit with my other friend in Macclesfield.

I drove to Quarry Bank Mill where we met up and spent the day.

Fabulous gardens

A very informative talk at the Apprentices House

Wonderful kitchen garden but it looks like someone is lying down on the job! LOL

Then we just had to pay a visit to a large M and S on the way back ;)

I had seen some lovely white dip dishes sitting on slate platters whilst at the garden centre a few days previously but they were priced a bit too steeply for £25 to £45....eek!
I came across some lovely little dishes in M and S and as I had some vouchers (and my friend can get discount!) I bought them because I suddenly remembered there was some slate pieces in my shed that were left overs from the fire hearth being made by the previous owner!

I just knew they were worth keeping for something LOL ;)
A laughter filled evening followed.

My final day of holiday tales will be posted on Tuesday so do come back and see where we went :)

  1. Glad you got your beast back, Sioux. Have fun with it.
    Thanks for sharing more holiday pics. I had to laugh at that scarecrow sleeping on the job!!
    Have a good week.

  2. Yes, the scarecrow made me smile too!

  3. What a lovely day :D XXX

  4. What a lovely place to visit and you got the weather. See, keeping old things pays off sometimes especially when it's a lovely piece of slate, which is one of my favourite things after visiting Bathesda in N. Wales - famous blue slate quarry.

  5. Gorgeous dishes, the slate is perfect for them. Great pics, lol the scarecrow!!
