Happy New Year and a Birthday Outing

Happy New Year to all blog friends!

Just before New Year it was my Aunty Frida's 3rd birthday. She had a special trip out with my Mum, Saoirse to visit Harewood House gardens before they close for the winter. It is very pretty there even when it is cold and wet!

Here are Frida and Saoirse. Frida always wants to be on the go so no time for photos BOL

Saoirse is happy to pose though.

There are a lot of water birds at Harewood especially beautiful swans.

And although it was muddy there was still plenty to see...and this puddle looked like the entrance to another world beneath their paws:

As it was so cold, the staff at the House had set up fire pits for peeps to toast marshmallows.

There were warming drinks for sale too.

Frida was hoping for a taste of that marshmallow!

No luck sadly!

But Frida did get plenty of birthday treats when she got home and she did enjoy her trip to Harewood too.


  1. What a wonderful birthday treat, such a beautiful place to visit.

  2. Those are fancy marshmallows. We only get the common ones...probably children's ones...Another fantastic day out. Happy Birthday Frida.

  3. Happy 3rd birthday, Frida! My first schnauzer was named Freda, and of course a miniature schnauzer has affenpinscher in their makeup. Of topic there...anyhow, I hope you had a great day and will have a wonderful 4th year.

  4. Happy Birthday Frida!

  6. That looks like a fun place but we think you should have been able to roast a hot dog!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  7. Reading this as a blizzard swirls around us makes me feel very warm and comforted.

  8. Moth you and your sibs and peeps live in a most lovely place with such a great variety of fun activities for everyone.
    Happy New Year my sweet friend
    Hugs Madi

  9. If I were Frida I would have been wishing for a taste of those hot drinks. I think an Eggnog Latte or Salted caramel cappuccino would be just fine for us. It says it opens back up March 23, 2018. I think I would like to visit The Terrace Tearooms. You know with the Chinese New Year it will be the year of the dog, yep our year and maybe you could get into The Terrace Tearooms.
    Thanks for being a friend
