Since Chris was doing the 3 Peaks Challenge at the weekend, I decided to go home to my parents for a couple of days. They only live about 17 miles away but it's more in the countryside so it's always relaxing to be out there. Chris and 5 other guys from his work did the 3 Peaks Challenge (Ben Nevis, Scafel Pike and Snowden) in 24 hours and they raised £2,500 for charity. Well done boys! I was so worried that Chris would have a fall or break something since the wedding is only 12 days away! Luckily he came back unscathed. It didn't stop me from worrying all weekend though. Phew!
My parents house is a total haven for me and I love going back to to chill out and spend some time with my family. I love their garden, it's so peaceful and we had the perfect weather to sit out, chat, have a BBQ and sip some vino...
I love the circular couches with the table in the middle that sits on the deck. You can push them together to make a huge sun bed so you can soak up the rays.
My mum picked up this great piece of driftwood at a local dump. There was a guy who was going to get rid of it, he picked it up in the Lake District in 1974 and had it in his garden but they didn't want it anymore. When my mum said she loved it, he gave it to her for free. I think it's a really nice ornamental piece for the deck and it's cool that it has such a history.
