Taking a little break… | NinkComPoop

Breaks are important. Week long ones, two week long ones, day ones, even just a couple hour ones. If we don’t take them often enough, we can easily overwork ourselves and burn ourself out…

My boyfriend asked me whether I fancied a week away with his family in the middle of Huddersfield (close to Manchester if your Geography is terrible like mine). All I knew was that his lovely mummy wanted a break away for her birthday with all her children. Of course I jumped to the opportunity and felt that it was a great excuse to look forward to something while in the dreary month of February (have I ever told you how much I hate February?).

Throughout our time there in this absolutely huge cottage (cottage blog post to come!), we had a few little walks around the area. However, Huddersfield is one of the hilliest areas I have ever been to, so a “quick pop” to the shop turned into a sweaty half hour hike. This kind of holiday was almost a ‘first’ for me, as most holidays I’ve previously been on have involved lots of planning and arrangements for various sights, areas and activities. It was a nice change to just sit sipping whiskey and playing card games in a fancy looking mansion and pretending we were rich for a week!

I managed to take some snaps of just a few of my favourite sightings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I just had to take a photo of this cash machine. Yes, that’s a cash machine. But also a phone box… Can you even get anything more perfect?

We had to take a drive into York while we were near the area to do a spot of shopping (keep eyes peeled on my channel for a haul by the way…). The buildings in York were just beautiful, particularly down The Shambles (a famous street lined with timber-framed buildings housing a range of touristy shops).

Within the Cathedral, there was a little area where you were able to light a candle for friends or family who have passed.

To finish off, a lovely picture of Adam sat beside a fancy Prosecco cocktail…

Isn’t he dishy? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me know in the comments your favourite places to visit when you need a small escape and why. I’d love to hear them!

Best,

  1. Omg you were so close to where I live in Leeds, it’s about 30 minutes away from Huddersfield. I love York it’s such a lovely town with quirky shops. You should come to Leeds and come explore. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. The pictures are so beautiful! I like how the one time I’m in Brighton and you’re up North somewhere, my kinda luck. My family and I do a massive camping trip to Cornwall, always at the same place. No wifi, no signal for any phones. But we get to the point where we are just ready for a complete break from society, so all is good.

  3. My all time favourite place to go to is Manchester! I have soooo many good memories there; meeting Shannon, seeing all my favourite bands and all my family live there too ๐Ÿ™‚ oh, and the airport which is my favourite place to be but also the worst ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    However, I have a feeling Manchester will soon be replaced when I go to Cornwall for my birthday ๐Ÿ˜Š X
