Please excuse the pun, I really couldn’t help it!
A couple of weeks ago I went to Darbyshire for a couple of days to see my family who were staying there for half term. I miss my family so much when I am at university so it was so lovely to go and see them just for a little bit.
Darbshire is a beautiful place in the Peak District where I now have so many lovely memories. We did a lot of walking, even in the rain. We went out for lunch, wondered around the little town of Buxton (yes, where the water is from – took me a while!) and found some cute shops. One of my favourite things that we did was go into some caves where they have these beautiful blue and yellow rocks. The ones I have here aren’t them, but they had a little gift shop and I thought that these were really pretty!
My brother and I spent ages looking in the gift shop at all the beautiful rocks. It was like we were kids again, when the gift shop is always the best part of an outing or school trip. In the end I think that my dad just felt sorry for us (or more likely embarrassed by us!) so he gave us each £5 to by some rocks and get out of there. In the end his plan backfired as we took even longer decided what to spend our money on. You really wouldn’t believe I am going to be 20 next year!
Anyway, I chose these two in the end. I love the blue shades of them both and thought they would look so pretty in my bedroom and in the backdrop of photos.
Just a little collection of some of the pictures that I took while I was there. Autumn was in full swing and looking back through I my photos I was obviously very excited by all the pretty coloured leaves! There is also a photos of the beautiful gift shop that I found. It was white, cute and perfect, totally up my street. In the end I didn’t by anything by I am pretty sure my mum snuck back there to get some presents for my sister and I for Christmas. She’s not very subtle with things like that!
