Firework Champions at Newby Hall

On Saturday afternoon, we drove up to Newby Hall to attend the 2021 Firework Champions.

We attended the same event two years ago with Rob, April and Isabel and had a fantastic time, so when we realised that the event was on once again this last weekend and that we had already booked and paid for tickets, we were absolutely delighted.

We pitched up the gazebo and enjoyed some wonderful food with great company…

There were ultimately thousands of visitors so having selected a gazebo pitch was a super smart move, to ensure that we could enjoy the show with plenty of space for us all. The following picture was taken v early on, before most people had settled in…

This year, we were to enjoy some aerial fireworks that were delivered from two planes that were also performing some incredible acrobatics to boot, before the main event as the skies darkened sufficiently.

Finally, we settled in to enjoy the three companies that were competing and we hope that we will be able to secure tickets for next years event…

Wishing all a very Merry Christmas

Wishing all our friends and family near and far a wonderfully Merry Christmas .

We hope that you are able to have a lovely time with your closest and that we can all meet up again soon in 2021.

Our Christmas Day isn’t quite going to be how we had planned as we were due to Be onboard P&O Britannia in the Caribbean celebrating our 20th Wedding anniversary.

However, as with likely all of you we are at home enjoying the coziness of the open fire and another terrific Christmas dinner courtesy of Mrs R 👌🍾🍷🍹

Have a wonderful time and we look forward to meeting you again soon for dinner, drinks, a dog walk or under whatever circumstances we can ❤️

Golf…

Lee and Simon managed to squeeze in 9 holes of golf tonight – it was lovely to get out on the course and great to catch up with Lee 👌

There were a LOT of golfers on the course all playing in 2-balls and the course was in terrific shape considering the lack of rain over the last few months.

Hopefully we can get out again in the coming weeks 🤞
