To make the most of the the last few weeks of the summer, Rob and I decided to spend some time camping in the Peak District, where we got to explore, walk lots, and cook some fancy camp-meals (gnocci, posh sausages, wine sauces etc.)
The camp-site was basic but nice, and I had only booked it because of the Lord of the Rings theme (following our trail of filming locations in NZ last year), Rivendale even has a pub called The Prancing Pony where we enjoyed a couple of dinners and drinks.
Highlights included a day at Alton Towers, walking around Chatsworth (Mr Darcy!), and shopping in the artsy shops of Matlock Bath, Bakewell and Buxton.
The big event of the trip though was Rob’s proposal camp-fire! Open fire, big jumpers and a bottle of bubbly, and a big yes from me!
Returning as fiancées and to more bubbly and lots of phone calls we barely had time to stop before I headed down to the Suffolk coast with the girls and Rob had a week of quiet relaxation. Even more wine and good food and walking and the beginnings of wedding planning (over more wine)!
And that’s about all the news I have for now; back to work and real life next week.
