Taking it easy by the river ........

Happy Sunday!

Enjoying your weekend? .... I hope the sun is shining where you are.

Me .... I'm down in the Cotswolds,  Bourton-on-the-Water to be exact, and it's a beautiful day.  This is home until Friday.....

Fairlie Cottage, on the banks of the River Windrush, right in the centre of this beautiful little town.
We're enjoying some well earned, relaxing family time after all the madness of TT fortnight.
I won't bore you with lots of photos .... here's just a few of the highlights of our first couple of days

Grandad had a little help loading the luggage into the car .....

After a short flight to Gloucester, we picked up the hire car and before we knew it we were back in beautiful Bourton.

Meet the neighbours .......

We did arrive a little early, the cottage wasn't quite ready for us, but no worries, off we went to find a spot of lunch and light refreshment .....

What better way to spend a Friday afternoon .... lazing by the river with beer (or a cheeky G&T in my case!) and of course .... an all important ice cream

We got friendly with the locals .....

Even hubby tested the water .....

Until it was time to enter our holiday home ....

It's going to be a good week ....

Thanks for popping by ........ if you're doing anything special for Father's Day ....enjoy!

Cheerio from the Cotwolds ..... until next time ....
