Report From Northern England

The BP's have arrived in Northern England! Get ready for three weeks of across the pond blog posts... but there's one twist. These blog posts are written by another BP. Guess who? Read on to find out.

We have arrived in our smashing little English country cottage and are more than excited, oh so beautiful it is here, as well as absolutely stylish, incredibly charming, and superbly chilly (not like the burning hot 35 degree Celsius summer that awaits us at home).
        I believe that this view enhanced the overall enjoyment of my life so far purely by its beauty.
 Today as we were walking around the downtown of our little village there were at least 20 cows in this field in the middle of the town (see picture above). Obviously, it filled my imagination with five million thoughts of impossible things. Like, for example, what if there was a cow field in the middle of Toronto? That would spice up city life.

 I couldn't help but imagine how Scout would love squeezing her little snout in between the beams of the bridge to overlook this glorious river view.

 Have you guessed who I am? I'll give you one last clue... I enjoy leopard... maybe too much leopard.

My name is....

  1. 'Superbly chilly' - I love that quote, this is our summer, now you see why I tan myself silly and lie in the sun in bikini when it's 67 degrees.
    So so excited and congrats to you know who for a wonderful post.

    1. I sure wish it was cold back at home. If I ever dared to try to tan I would be a lobster within 30 seconds.

  3. Great job reporting Miss. I am all for cows in the middle of everywhere! They are charming and kind and what they lack in intelligence they more than make up for with those eyes! Can't wait for next post!

    1. A cow field is always needed, and Toronto could spare a skyscraper or two. I think a nice open field with such beautiful creatures as cows is exactly what the doctor ordered.

    Dear YR.
    Such enthusiasm and beautiful innocence must come from the Youngest Rascal..!!
    What fun to see this beautiful part of the world through your eyes.
    Are you donning your leopard skins in the country? Helen :)

  9. I thought I recognized that perky prose style from your very insightful commentary during the Little Women book club. Now listen YR, you rock the leopard print and I look forward to your next post!

    Oh my gosh she kills me!
    What a lovely post - and did she take the photos? You have found yourself in the most bucolic of countrysides and what about the weather - lashings of blue skies and sun out. Ripping! What a veritable treat, George (reverting to my Famous Five speak)

  17. Toodle Pip YR,
    There is actually a field of cows right in the middle of Toronto, but only sculptures, sending you a piccie. Agree the real deal would be cool, stop a few people from crossing the street.
    Poor Scout and her snout, left at home from all that lovely Englishness. But I am sure you will spoil her properly when you return.
    Give your wellies and your cardi/ jumper a good workout. And watch out for stray leopards...
    Happy hols!
