If you could be any character in Downton Abbey, who would you be? Mrs Patmore? Lady Sybil? Mr Carson? Obviously I would be Lord Grantham as I quite fancy posh slap-up dinners being served to me on a daily basis 😋 Love this Autumnal shot of the real life place behind the TV series - Highclere Castle in Newbury, England. Lovely photo by @r2taggy
@r2taggy is a great person to follow if you want to see behind the scenes of this beautiful place, for Paul is the real life Rolls Royce Chauffeur at the castle! Now that's a job I would absolutely love.
If you do manage to visit, you’ll notice how this castle (@highclere_castle) has a different feeling than many other grand places in Britain because it feels like a home. A very warm and welcoming feeling. And what history! The first written records of the estate date back to 749 when an Anglo-Saxon King granted the estate to the Bishops of Winchester. Bishop William of Wykeham built a beautiful medieval palace and gardens on the park. Later on, the palace was rebuilt as Highclere Place House in 1679. Today, the Castle is home to the 8th Earl and Countess of Carnarvon.
I visited a few years ago during the Christmas fair and bought a pair of socks in the library. Not kidding. Hearing the carol singers in the main room of the castle next to the roaring fire whilst scoffing on a mince pie was a brilliant memory for fans of the telly show like myself.
Go follow @r2taggy for more shots from the real life Downton Abbey! Have a lovely peaceful Thursday 🇬🇧 Want to be featured? Follow and tag us. 'Ta! 🇬🇧
RELAXING ~ #mrshinchphotochallenge
This is a photo of my bed, where I spend most of my time relaxing😌 I know it’s not perfect with the fairy lights over the bed falling down (I have since taken them down), and I know I’m not the best at making the bed! But it’s cozy and warm and just how I like it🥰 I’ve always been obsessed with my headboard, I saw it in a local bed shop about 6 months before we got it, and was adamant I had to have it, it’s plaid/tartan which is my favourite pattern!! The throw at the bottom I got from @primark a few years back, it cuz me £50 which is abit pricey for primark, but it’s so warm and thick and soft, I love it!! You might also have spotted Sylvester, this is a hot water bottle cover/big teddy, and I love him, he was my older sisters when she was younger and she used to bring him over when she used to stay with us and a little 3 year old me begged her to let me have him, which she did!! He’s always been on my bed ever since and is super nice to cuddle up to with his hot water bottle filled up in the winter😻 I got my ‘L’ from @shopmatalan a while ago too which sits nicely ontop of my bed😌 It’s perfect to me❤️ #bed#cozy#warm#relax#bedroom#sylvester#plaid#tartan#whiteandgreen#geometric#throw#primark#matalan#chill#hotwaterbottle#cute#uk#comfy
New foldable phone player is in the town..#Moto #Razr is back, with #1499#USD#price tag and it does not have #SIM#tray which is a step ahead for the #future !! The new #Motorola Razr merges #classic#mobile#design with #cutting-#edge #technology, and one area where the Razr is firmly ahead of the curve is with #eSIM technology. In fact, you can only buy Motorola’s #flip#smartphone in the eSIM-only variety. That means no #physical SIM card slot, which has a whole host of implications.
There’s also the question of #network locking. With the Motorola Razr, purchasing from #Verizon locks the phone to the carrier for #90#days until you’ve paid the phone off, at which point you can then switch to #T-Mobile or #AT&T. Although keep in mind that the phone is #missing#bands 12 and 14 used by these carriers for #rural #coverage! In the #UK, the phone will arrive as an EE exclusive, so we’ll have to see if it’s permanently or temporarily locked to EE as well.
The bottom line is, prepare for a much more limited range of options when picking eSIM-only over a phone that supports traditional SIMs too.
specifications: it has a small battery at 2,510mAh and runs the older Android 9 Pie operating system on Qualcomm’s sub-flagship Snapdragon 710 chip. It lacks the 5G option and bountiful memory of its rivals. Aside from the U.S. and Europe, it’ll also be on sale in Latin America, Asia and Australia.
My little guy turned 2 recently. I just had to make him a giant cookie with all his favourite things!
Swipe to see it to scale & a cute little video of him figuring it all out and trying to make off with it! 😊😂
This is why I do what I do and he makes me want to do it for everyone! ❤️
