Back from a divine holiday :-)

Monday, August 26, 2019

A very long time since I blogged here. Firstly my partner had heart trouble and then a cancer op - successful I’m happy to say. After that, I wasn’t well for a while - more or less 18 difficult months in all and I have been very dispirited because of it. I have some answers for the fainting fits I've been having - nothing life-threatening and am following all recommendations offered by the specialist and everything is much better now - for both of us. After all this, my younger son, DIL and grandkids invited me to go glamping as a relaxing treat and no one could have done anything kinder or better for me. A week in a very luxurious tent - lots of fresh air - peaceful, beautiful and green with lots of fun and some trips out. Truly I couldn’t have asked for better.

This was our 'tent' though glamping tents are worthy of a better name!

This was looking out of the tent

AND this was the view from the veranda - could have spent all day gazing at this - known now as 'Granny's View'!

A pretty little river ran along the bottom of the field

By the river was a fire pit for evening socialising - and toasted marshmallows!

The sunsets were gentle but glorious

We even had a rainbow to the delight of the grandchildren

All in all a great time was had by all that I will be forever grateful for. Lucky me!

    Wow! Now that's the way to camp! I've never seen anything like that here. Maybe in Africa, where you get a safari thrown in (my dream vacation).
    Glad all has gotten better for you two. So glad you posted a blog with pics...much appreciated! You have a nice family! Did you ever take any pics of Spain when you went there, to share with us? I was looking forward to hearing about that one too. But, I know you did get sick at the end of that trip.
    Have a great week and take care. Love ya.... xxo

    "Zelena" this was just the tonic you needed after what has been a rough time for you and your partner.
    I am delighted you were finally able to REALLY relax and reconnect with your family and that your medical problems are sorted.
    And it's lovely to see you back posting, have missed you on here, as I know "Sam" and others have too.
