A glimpse of England over Christmas

It was our first Christmas as a couple in England this year. Finding places to go when it constantly rains and little is open can be challenging, but we found a couple of ways to get out and about, which normally involved driving around and being outside for minimal periods.
 
On Boxing Day we drove through the country to a village where Jane Austen used to live. On our first 'date' together, I took A to Winchester where I insisted he took a picture of her grave in the cathedral despite him having no idea who she was. He's lucky I didn't make him watch the BBC adaption of 'Pride and Prejudice', needless to say he was more 'aware' this time around. He loved the traditional style village!
 

On the 29th, we went and took a ride on an old steam train, which earned me major girlfriend brownie points. Couple this with the  meat pie we invested in on the way home and it was a super day for being a bloke.
 
I'm not about today, as it's time for goodbyes again until February. I seem to live in airports. I'll be back tomorrow though with some craft. Have you seen my craft challenge of 2013?
 It would make my day if you'd pin it, or even better pin-it so you can take part.
Happy Friday!
