First up I had an Instagram message from a blogging friend who happened to be in the area. We met at a lovely tea room in Beetham, not far from the garden centre of our first meeting!
Beautiful Celtic Cross.
A cottage that was festooned with foliage and flowers of all shapes and sizes.
I would have loved to look inside the church but sadly it was closed.

... and two.
Having fun with the selfie mode on the flip screen, Gerry and Me :-) Those tearooms are well worth a visit and they offer an excellent gluten free range. Due to its popularity it is advisable to book first!
The blue skies soon gave way to a steady stream of rain and in a last minute decision we hopped in the car and visited my mum for her birthday. Tesco saved the day regarding the food and we were able to tuck into a decent selection of gluten free fayre.
A lovely mum, nanna and great-nanna x
Our third stop was a visit to Kathryn and Mary Grace for tea. It was good to see them both but the visit was marred slightly by Benedict's blood sugars suddenly becoming quite unstable. As a result we left in haste and I was glad that we did because he had a horrendous hypo attack in the car and was quite unwell. It really was a relief to be home.
Jorgen, a mighty eating machine bones, dog food, cuddly toys and wallpaper! In short a tiny tearaway :-) Good job, Kath and Mary love him!
