52 Project – W2: Clouds

Hubby’s thoughts behind last week’s theme was… “It’s been raining a lot lately, so there are plenty clouds around for you take pictures of!”.

I should know now that things don’t always work the way you plan them, specially when it comes to the weather. I had planned to leave the picture-taking until the weekend as I would have more time to spend on it. Saturday morning was spent tidying the house and the afternoon with family so I didn’t really have a chance to go outside and look for clouds.

Sunday was going to be the day! I woke up early and went straight to the window to look outside and yep there was a cloud, one single grey cloud covering the sky as far as the eye could see! Hubby and I went out to Tatton Park and walked around for a few hours but still things didn’t look any better. I decided half way through our walk to change this week’s topic to something else as the original one wasn’t going to work! I took the pictures and made my way back to the house.

Once at home, I was looking through my pictures when I saw the picture below. I had taken it a few days earlier with my phone, without realizing I had taken a picture with this week’s topic.

It was Friday afternoon when I returned from work, I got out of my car to walk to the house when I saw the sunset below. I took my phone out and took this one single picture, one single shot and it turned out quite nicely 🙂

Happy Pancake Day to everyone!

Day 332 – Fields

Here is a picture of the same fields as the previous post. This photo was taken at 8:21am and it all looks completely different.

Day 331 – Sun

The 19th of November was the last day of my Project 365. I can’t believe it has been a whole year since I started the project. I have a total of 365 pictures minus two (two days that I missed when hubby was in hospital and when I wasn’t well). Anyway, I hope to complete my posts in the next week or so and then I will be posting a recap of my 27th year.

Going back to day 328, picture taken as the sun was getting ready to set. Happy Friday to everyone!

Day 315 – Milk Cows

Here is one of the fields that surrounds our home. I get to see it every morning before I make my way to work and every afternoon when I return home from work. I took this picture on a Monday afternoon, the cows were on the field. I don’t get to see them anymore as the days draw in by the time I get home.

Day 199 – The Bells of Peover

Last Thursday hubby and I were meant to be going out with some friends to celebrate their recent engagement, but due to last-minute work commitments our friends were not able to go. In order for the reservations not to go to waste, we decided to go by ourselves and I’m so glad we did!

The Bells of Peover is a restaurant situated in the Cheshire countryside, we’ve been meaning to go for a quite a long time but never had the opportunity. The long anticipated wait did not disappoint as the food was completely amazing!

Below is a picture of my main course (forgot to take my camera and these iPhone pics don’t do the dishes any justice.)

Surf & Turf

And here is my dessert 🙂

Pecan Tart

Below is a picture of the entrance, with a very thick Wisteria trunk.

Day 177 – Geese in the Fields

Last Wednesday hubby and I went for a drive around the village of Goostrey. It is a pretty little village close to where we live now. While driving back home I saw all these geese in a field enjoying the sunshine 🙂

Day 175 – Birtles Lane

Last Monday after returning home from work (45 minutes drive), I realized I had forgotten some important papers at work. I needed those papers next morning so I had to go back there. Hubby kindly decided to join me and do the driving, something I was so thankful for as it is a long drive through narrow country lanes. On our way back we stopped on the side of the road and took some pictures around Birtles Lane. The views are very pretty. (iPhone pics)

Day 152 – The Hen Do

Last Saturday was a crazy busy day for me and sadly was not able to take any pictures with my Nikon. I was working most of the morning and the afternoon. When I left work, hubby and I went to see an Open House in Mobberley. We are hoping to put our house on the market in the near future and we went to see a lovely house in that area. While driving to the house we came across this lovely cottage that was also for sale. Sadly it was way out of our price range. Here is the picture for ‘Day 152’.

As soon as we arrived home, I needed to get ready to go to a friend’s Hen Do. She planned for her Hen Do to be at the Lowry in Salford Quays. We went to see the Full Monty. I have never seen the film but I had an idea what the play was about. It was funny and enjoyed it. Here is a sneaky picture I took of play. (Don’t worry they were still wearing all their clothes!)

Day 129 – Sandbach

Sandbach is a market town located in Cheshire. We drove there on Thursday evening to take pictures around the square. Sandbach is a picturesque town, its pretty cobbled market square has two Saxon Crosses. The town dates back to 1086 when it was known as Sanbec.

Day 121 – Tatton Park

I have to apologize for the lack of posts over the last few days. I finished working on my website on Wednesday and it is all ready! You can access it through the navigation on this page, any feedback would be very greatly appreciated.

On Wednesday I took the day off work to spend it with hubby and to finish my site (Hubby is away this weekend). We went for a walk around Tatton Park and after we had lunch in Knutsford. We went to a Turkish restaurant called Istanbul Grill. The food was delicious and it was great spending the morning with him.

I took lots of pictures around Tatton Park but the two below are my favourite of the bunch. I was hoping to take some pictures of the deer but we couldn’t find them. Oh well! Maybe next time 🙂
