Choosing The Countryside

And Kapoow I am back , well not exactly as this was taken yesterday where I pushed myself to go for a walk , little did I know I was quite ill with a inflamed dingy thingy at the back of the throat. It wasn't my tonsils they were whipped out in 1997 and then I had secondary bleeding . Any way enough of my medical history and onto the pictures. This time out of my village I took a different turn and headed up the hill with inhaler firmly in hand.

Looking down the lane where I work.

Looking on towards the secret manor house

Swarkstone Pavillion

Sometimes I wonder why i do what I do then I stop dead in my tracks and look at eh calm this is why I do what I do. That light is never going to shine on the water that very same way again and I was there for that : me yes me.


  1. These really are beautiful photos, what a photogenic part of the country. I'd love to end up living somewhere so tranquil looking. You want to watch out or you'll end up with me landing on your doorstep ;-)
    Hope your throat is on the mend xx

    1. You would be more than welcome to turn up on my doorstep ! . The throat is on the mend xx

  2. The photo of the Pavilion is so beautiful! I had to rush off and find out more about Swarkestone as I'd never heard of it.
    Isn't it weird how just before we realise we ae ill, we feel so low and can't fathom why. An inflamed dingy thingy sounds nasty but I'm glad you're on the road to recovery.

  3. Hope you are feeling better. It looks lovely where you live x

  4. Nothing like a blast of fresh air even when you don't feel great and with views like that walking distance from home who wouldn't want to march up a hill and admire the view. Beautiful countryside around you and that Manor House with the entrance in the wall looks most intriguing. I hope you didn't over do it and are feeling a little better now too.

  5. Lovely photos! This urban jungle lover is starting to think there's more to life than city living after all....

  6. love the rounded domes on the pavilion, very oriental
