Travelling On a Lemonade Budget

Travelling on a lemonade budget but maintaining the champagne lifestyle , alas No I am not whisking you off to Bali or Mauritius ! We are back on the case of fragile travelling in the UK if you do look around there are places to visit that are either free or £5 or under with children often free. So when said child safely deposited at his holiday job it was off on an adventure with £10 only in my purse , I am not quite sure if my husband is sighing or just breathing heavily when I announce we are off , then again lately my hearing isn't the best. We drove to Shepshead Watermill was a mere 20 minutes from my doorstep by car and oh my what a beauteous place it was and totally and utterly free. I like free things I do but if there is something to buy /donate I always make sure that I do this.



The mill is only open on set open days at is a private venture so please do check but you set off the 14th September is the last open day so keep your diaries free, the day we went there was a car meet there of BMW 's and there were some very beautiful cars there old and new. The mill has one of the most beautiful mill settings I have seen in a long time and reminds me of George Elliots book a Mill on the Floss.
