Horace's Friday adventure

Hello there lovely people. My little retreat is wonderful so far. I'm resting and recuperating as well as recharging my artistic batteries.

Today I decided to take a trip to Castleton, a very touristy kind of place, lots of shops and some stunning scenery too. I was most impressed with the coffee shop

And surprise! Look who I bumped into again, my pal Cedric. We had a lovely latte together.

Then I took myself off for a short drive, up to Surprise View, and what a surprise it was.

Panoramic views of The dales, how lucky was I to see all of this?

In fact, all the stunning scenery has inspired me. So when I arrived back at the holiday cottage, I cracked open the crafting supplies.

Fortified with a nice mug of coffee,

I made a thank you card

for my holiday home hosts, who have been most welcoming.

After making the thank you card, I decided to start on the bears' Christmas cards, as a nice surprise for the bears back at home, I know how stressed they get with all the projects we have on our to do list, so this will help alleviate some of the pressure for them.

I made all of these, Pooh will be really pleased with me!

With love from the bears.


  1. I know, Horace, how inspiring a beautiful trip to the countryside AND a delicious latte at a nice coffee shop can be! I am sure your chat with Cedric was fine and you had lots to tell to each other.

    So, I see, you put all the gathered energy into some cool crafting! Well done!!!

    Greetings from cold and grey Vienna,
