At the start of December I was lucky enough to be able to go away for an early Christmas weekend in a country manor in Derbyshire. Lea Hall became the home to a bunch of us for a booze, present and fun filled weekend! For me, it was a lovely break from work, in the middle of a week off spent with the boyfriend and getting to know his family (eep!) The group that were going away were his brothers old course mates and friends, and there was a spare room going to we joined the fun!
The house itself was absolutely beautiful, as were the grounds and the surrounding area. We ate and drank loads of great food and drink – serious props to those of the group who cooked the amazing Christmas dinner! There was even an afternoon of present giving from Santa, Christmas quizzes and lots of walks. I won’t bore you too much but here’s a collection of photos from the weekend – some from my phone, and the latter half being taken by Ali on his big fancy camera :)
Warning, there’s a lot of photos!
And yes, whilst the above was the only gin of the weekend, there were still some sore heads in the mornings thanks to buckets of wine!
