Today is my husband’s 40th birthday.
Here is the birthday card I created for him
We are going out for a meal with his family later today, and meeting up with friends tomorrow.
I came across this lovely idea through this blog, about Where you live weekend on the Just Pure Lovely blog. The idea is simply to post about the part of the world you live in. As we are up at our cottage this weekend, where we spend some weekends and most of the school holidays (hence the part-time bit in the title) I thought this time I would share a few photos of what I can see within 100 yards of our house.
Our cottage is situated on the north coast of Northern Ireland, close to the Giants Causeway, and outside the village/hamlet known as Lisnagonugue – now there is a name to tackle!
It was a bit hazy when I was taking the photos, but you can just make out the sea, and that is Rathlin Island on the right. On a good day you can see Scotland too.
The view “over the gate”.
This is down the lane – it is a proper bumpy lane, as it has grass growing up the middle!
This is an old abandoned cottage.
The other end of the lane.
Some locals across the road – there are also usually some cows in another field, but only sheep today. In the distance, on the horizon, that is the top of the cliffs above the Giant’s Causeway.
Finally some old dry stone wall in the lane – there used to be lots in the area, but more and more is being replaced by modern fencing.
So that is a glimpse into the area around here.
If you enjoyed this mini-tour, be sure to come back again, and see what I will share next month.
On a Digital Scrapbooking note, the NSD (National Scrapbooking Day) I did make a few purchases yesterday. There were lots of bargains around, and I stocked up on some more NitWit designs, as I especially love to use her kits for baby and kids cards.
Take care until next time. Please leave a comment or sign my visitors book if you have a moment.
Thanks, and have a lovely weekend.
