Where I stand ~ Autumn

I really don't think of myself as brave when I go out adventuring , I will adventure anywhere but I do love particularly being outdoors where there is a distinct lack of people so my mind can relax.I recently took a walk down a ancient monastery route alas the monastery is no longer there but a skeleton of a priest was found some years ago in a farm house. I am most fortunate to live near many villages and I do love walking I could do with a nice pair of waking boots with ankle support and some of those walking poles. Is there a walking equipment fairy I do hope so as I really would like these items and a nice new shiny camera ones that's portable as I like to constantly take pictures with my minds eye I have  particular eye and see many a thing other people don't see or choose not to see * who knows.


The area round here is farms and rolling fields and we fall within the art of the National Forest which is the largest tree replantation in England and covers a woodland across 3 counties.






That little wander can lead you to stunning scenery and the wonders of Autumnal colours.




And the scenary I came upon in the National Forest I thought I just might come across Frodo Baggins and Gandalf. It really is that magical here and the thing is with scenary each day is different and it is really something I embrace and going back to the same place again is never dull.



You don’t need a lot to get walking you really just need a sense of adventure and to dress accordingly hence why I’d like a new pair of walking boots.

Betwixt the ground and the sky that's where you find me seeking out life and adventure ~ here is hoping you find adventure too.

My Cat is Such A Show Off

I don’t know if it was the free lunch I was eating from the Coop or if it was the show tunes I had playing through the laptop. The free lunch has a great message behind it as every time you choose Co-op water they donate 3 p to the One Foundation for every litre sold.




But I think my cat Jack was channelling his inner Rose from Titantic ( ps he’s not named after Jack in Titanic but is named after Jack Black the comedian). Jack was getting all 

“ Paint me like one of your French women “











I also think my cat is middle class because it eats Waitrose cat food , I have no idea how I entered up with a middle-class cat but I have as it won't touch Aldi cat food as my friend puts it "Aldi cat foods smells like dead Zombies ".It was at this point I said "My cat eats Waitrose #Middleclasscat " So there you have it I have a cat that has no conception of the Brexit process and increasing food prices while he indulges in his Bourgeoisie ways.

High Tea At Little Morton Hall

If you're wondering what life is like when your child has flown the nest to university and you're rattling round the house then I have a few answers for you one is going slipper shopping and believe me that is complicated in itself. I don't think slipper shopping could be complicated but it is there is slippers with memory foam slippers without memory food and so the choice goes on.

Footloose and fancy free and with the teenager at university I decided me and Mr T should get out though it seems if I want the DIY doing then I can keep running out on little jaunts boooo. I do love myself having a go at DIY though Mr T does worry he will have to redo himself but trust me I am getting better. Trouble is with DiY once you spot one thing then you notice another and the one usually noticing is me and I promise I am not causing the DIY issues .. well mostly not.

Little Morton Hall is a beautiful National Trust property not far from Derby it is in Cheshire and it really is the place of dreams with a beautiful moat running round it and it is the archetypical chocolate box black and white timber framed building. little Morton hall does have some scaffolding around it at the moment but that shouldn't  round for look and the elegant lady of a building does have to look her best . I promise you I don't have scaffolding and I even let my husband take my picture at Little Morton Hall without tilting my head not quite sure why I tilt my head in pictures but I do and I am trying to be more confident.




At Little Morton Hall there is a exhibition on what the Tudors thought of sleep there is even a dream library in the grounds where you can describe and file your dreams how magical is that !

Tudor sleep remedies


 You can explore the hall on your own or take one of the free tours that the National Trust run. Little Morton Hall is really stuck in time and the misfortunes of the Mortons is the fortunes of the National trust now and this has kept the hall as if it was still in the Tudor times.

You can always have a little tea at National Trust properties and in particular I think the High tea you can have at Little Morton Hall is exquisite value at £9.50 and for that you get sandwiches ,accompanying relish, some salad, shortbread and a choice of cake and of course tea. The size of the cake is huge and trust me you'll not need anything else to eat after you've had this.
