getting out somewhere different...


Blimey it has been a bit chilly in the UK recently hasn't it? This cold weather is just making me want to build a little nest from fleecey blankets and cushions and hibernate on my sofa with a good book until Spring arrives!!

So getting out of the house on Saturday to do something a bit different was like a breath of fresh air. We had a drive over into Leicestershire to the Vale of Belvoir (and a gorgeous little pub we know called the Red Lion at Stathern, lunch courtesy of lovely husband!!) and took Mac our border collie for a nice walk along the Nottinghamshire Canal before we went to the pub to sit in front of the roaring fire!

After lunch we had a drive over to Belvoir Castle and it was truly BEAUTIFUL!! It was a bright crisp and cold day and the scenery took your breath away. It was lovely to visit somewhere different and see new sights, not that far from the well-trodden footpaths we usually frequent on a weekend. And it was great to have my trusty camera with me to record the views and bring lots of my inspiration home....
