Three Shires, Four Ladies and a Picnic Basket

Please follow and like us:

Friday, September 5th would have been the day I commenced the hustle and bustle known as the Toronto International Film Festival in my old life with the entertainment industry in North America. For the first time since I started my adventure in Derbyshire I have had pangs of missing those red carpet premieres, movie-binging and starstruck moments, that was until the Ladies Take On three shires, four cheeses from said shires, a picnic basket and Boots the dog on that very same day.

I may have stepped out of the spotlight in North America but have stepped into a more natural and flattering light in the great landscape of Northern England and of course, nothing shines as brightly as friendship…

Lady Tiger Lilly had the fabulous idea to celebrate the cheeses of the three shires – Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire – by visiting the Three Shires Bridge with cheeses from each of the shires. Lady Sky provided some thirst quenching Rose Lemonade from Fentimans, Lady Metal and Lady Wordsmith took pictures of what can be easily described as a grand day out.

Photobombing at its best. Thank you Lady Metal.

I can only suspect Lady Sky is providing some health and safety measures so Lady Tiger Lilly doesn’t follow Boots into the river.

We all had our favourite cheeses from the sampling. Lady Sky loved the Cheshire, Lady Tiger Lilly still and always will love the Sage Derby, Lady Metal leaned towards the Staffordshire Cheddleton with chives and Lady Wordsmith couldn’t get enough of the Peakland white with smoked tomato and garlic.

A fabulous end to a fabulous day.

Another successful adventure deep in the heart of the North of England. Yes indeed, we are Ladies, we are friends and we love picnicking in those picturesque Northern landscapes.
