Leaving on a Jet Plane

I have had the flights booked for months and months but it is only just starting to feel like a reality. I will be travelling to the UK for the whole month of August and spending a good portion of the time visiting with my gorgeous mum.

I am lucky enough to have a travel buddy with me this time in the form of  my eldest boy, Red.  I hate flying on my own so when Red told me he was planning a trip in the UK and Ireland, I started conniving (er) planning my own itinerary.

Last night we did some serious planning and detrimental denting of the credit cards but I can now rest easy as everything has been itinerised and pre-paid so just spending money to organise. We have planned a trip up to my beloved Yorkshire together before he takes off on his own tour. I was born in Yorkshire but he has never been so I am going to show him the special places.

This is a spot that is very special to me as it is my dads birthplace and resting place, so we will be heading here one afternoon and taking a walk around the lake

At this stage, I still plan to blog while I am away. It will be from my iPad which I have equipped to be able to download photos from my camera so the giveaway will still be applicable through the month of August.
