We spent six days in Dorset last week. We went to our favourite place, a gorgeous campsite high above Swanage and I was looking forward to it so much. But as ever at the end of August the unpredictable British weather conspired to make it something of a wash out. There were a couple of nights when I thought our tent was literally going to take off and go flying down the hill with us in it! We would have stayed until this weekend but after a particularly bad night on Wednesday and waking to the sound of rain on the canvas yet again, my lovely husband announced that enough was enough and I was more than happy to go with his decision. I have never been so happy to step into our lovely hot shower and snuggle up in our cosy bed on Thursday evening knowing that we were safe from the wind and rain.
We were lucky though that we had one really lovely day of sun and we visited somewhere I have wanted to visit in a long time. The lovely town of Shaftesbury was not a disappointment and the view down Gold Hill was everything I had imagined it to be. There's always a silver lining in every rain cloud.

Is there anyone out there....?
I can't quite believe it's been nearly a year since I last wrote a blog post and I doubt there is anyone out there still dropping by. But I have decided to take the plunge back into blogging again. I feel rather nervous. Like it was my first time writing again. I suppose it may as well be as I'm sure I must have lost every reader I ever had.
Life has been busy this last year and is set to get even more busy towards the end of the year. But in the best way imaginable and I think it is a good time to step back in here again.
So if you are out there reading this, bare with me, I am back and will write a more interesting post in the next few days. I'm so looking forward to chatting with you all again. x
