Kirkstall Abbey

Yesterday The Mister and I went for a little wander around Kirkstall Abbey. Two years ago I came up to visit The Mister for the first time and it was one of the places we visited on that weekend. It is a beautiful Cistercian monastery and is so imposing. I still find it incredible that it was built so long ago. It is so close to the centre of Leeds that it always surprises me when I see it on the bus on my way to work. When I was on the bus the other day it was really foggy and the Abbey kind of loomed out of the fog. Very eerie.

It still amazes me that it is two years ago I first came up here. Time has flown by so fast and so much has happened in that time. As I was walking yesterday I realised how grateful I am for the place I am currently in, and how grateful I am for The Mister. I am so fortunate. I live in a beautiful part of the world with a wonderful man, I have a house to live in and food to eat and a job I love. Life is good – it’s very good indeed.

This picture was taken in the same but I had to take the recent one with my phone because I forgot my camera. Doh!

    I love the difference between the two photos. The top one you’re all “we’re cool with this and not freaking out AT ALL”, the second one is “yeah, this is IT!” Lovely!

    I’ve heard the getting a baby thing is contageous, I’m sure you’ll catch it soon :-P
