February is here - bring on the dancing hearts! ♥

Every February, I try and have my personal 'heart--thon' and post a hearty story a day up to the 14th - it was late (late late late) last night I realised that I'd not even thought about my heartfelt posts for 2016 and almost decided against doing it this year.

Then I had a change of heart!  So, to kick start (a little later than usual) my February heart--thon, please welcome Heart number one!

We'd spent a most glorious sunny week on holiday in the lakes (yes the sun did shine last year) and had planned on visiting this particular cafe.  We'd noticed it on the way up to our campsite and agreed that this was definitely a place to visit ...
So our last day was earmarked for a cup tea and fresh cakes before returning home.
Only, when we landed, salivating at the thought... 
Discovered it was closed.
Not good for moral but certainly good for the purse and the waistline!
Hey ho.

To my new followers - welcome to my little corner of the world, delighted to see you :), hope you enjoy the ride :) 


  1. So glad you are doing your heartathon again this year. It is always fun to see what you are going to bring us.xx

  2. Cakes and wi-fi ? My type of place. I would love to be there to take a chair and enjoy my cake eating slowly with a cup of decaf coffee.

  3. Aw what a shame it was closed!
    Bring the hearts, can't wait! xx

  4. What a great start for your heartathon. Love the carved stone. Take care.

  5. I did wonder yesterday that you would be too busy to do your heartathon this year but yippee it was here today. What the heck it is a day late but the lovely stone made me smile and I wanted to reach into the screen and touch it. Lovely heart shape on the sign.

  6. Looking forward to seeing this 'hearty' posts each day during the month of love.

  7. glad to see you in good heart! xx

  8. I too am happy to see the hearts again, but I'm struggling to accept that a whole month of 2016 is already behind us. Where did it go?!

  9. What a lovely idea, intrigued as to where that cafe is............care to share?

  10. I don't think I knew you then, but if you come back this way in 2016 it would be lovely to share the cuppa with you. The Cycle Cafe is not far from Bag End :-}
