The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

HM2014 – 30th April

Posted on

Yesterday was another good day. I had a massive headache at work, but a walk around Golden Acre Park with Cameron in the evening pretty much cleared that up. I always seem to get headaches when I start to drink more water than usual, I don’t know if anyone else has that problem?

Before we went on our walk, I’d already had my chocolate shake for tea, but Cameron hadn’t had anything to eat, so we stopped off at McDonalds on the way home. It was hard to sit there drinking a diet coke while he ate all the lovely smelling food, but I resisted ordering anything, so that’s a bonus! Especially since I have a bunch of vouchers for free apple pies, and we all know how delicious McDonald’s apple pies are, even if they are hotter than the sun!

The walk around Golden Acre is about 2500 steps, so I think it’s a good one to try do more often now that it’s lighter on an evening. It’s nice to spend time just walking and talking rather than sat at home in front of the tv ignoring each other too! I think next time I’ll take my proper camera with me, I took some pics this time with my phone but what’s the point of spending all that money on a camera and then always using my phone instead?!

Fun with Maestro at Golden Acre Park

Posted on

The weather was so lovely when we got up this morning that we decided to take Maestro for a walk around Golden Acre Park. Unfortunately, a lot of people had the same idea, so it was extremely busy! The sun was rather deceptive as the place was still extremely muddy from all the rain recently, and as I was walking over the grass towards the lake, I ended up on my knees in the mud. I wish I could say that I had been pulled over by Maestro, but Cameron was holding him, I just wasn’t paying attention!

After we got home from the park, Maestro was still full of beans, so we tired him out in the garden playing fetch and making him run around like a loon!

Nostell Priory

Posted on

Since we just renewed our National Trust memberships, and it’s been a while since we went for a walk anywhere, we decided to stay close and go to Nostell Priory. We took a picnic with us which we ate in the car before our walk (still slightly too cold for eating outside!), then went for a walk around the lake at Nostell Priory. There’s a few different walking routes around the grounds, so we’ll probably go back and explore some more later in the year! By the time we’d finished, we were just ready for a nice cup of tea and a big slab of cake, rounding off a pretty awesome day!

While we were there, we picked up a big map of England with all the National Trust places marked on it, so we’re going to try and get to as many as possible this year! Not quite as grand as exploring the world, but much cheaper and still extremely fun!
