Let the ocean worry about being blue

On Sunday I went on a little adventure to Haworth, a lovely little village not far from where my boyfriend lives. I was mostly excited about the fact that this was where the Railway Children was filmed and I had visions of children dressed in old fashioned outfits waving banners and flags at passing trains. Instead the reality was much more filled with dozens of ageing men with their tripods and SLRs lining the station platform waiting for the steam trains to come chugging down the tracks. I tried my best to make it very clear that although I was also wielding my camera around I was definitely not in the same classification as them so in protest refused to take any pictures when the train actually stopped at the platform, just on the off chance that somebody happened to mistake me for a trainspotter.

Haworth itself is a lovely little place, its also where the Bronte sisters came from so there are lots of references to them dotted around the village amongst the weird goth/magic type shops (apparently quite common in the villages around the pennines for some unknown reason), tea shops and cute shops selling masses of vintage/Cath Kidston style homeware. 

It was a beautiful day too so it was absolutely perfect weather for meandering round the streets; it was really lovely to escape the city for a bit and feel like I'd just stepped back in time away from all the hustle and bustle I'm normally surrounded by. I tried to just pick a few pictures to show how pretty the village was but may have gone a bit overboard (the horse and the food shots probably weren't necessary additions to this post but I decided a few more pictures couldn't hurt too much...). 













This weekend definitely won't be as peaceful as the last. Tomorrow I'm off to visit one of my friends from Uni with two of my bezzies so we can celebrate her birthday. Her birthday was actually in August but apparently its quite difficult for us as real people with actual jobs and limited free time to all find a weekend we can all see each other. Somebody send me back to Uni now please. I hate growing up, it really doesn't suit my social life.

    1. Thanks :)
      I'm not normally a big hot chocolate drinker (I'm more of a juice/lemonade sort of person than any sort of hot drinks!) but I saw someone else with one and couldn't resist the marshmallows!x
