So as Absolute Vanilla and Lori have taken you on a tour of where they live, and Angela has baked us a chocolate cake to eat whilst we journey round I thought we'd better go on a walk to get rid of the excess calories of lots of cake. My walk will take in all seasons and times of day as these are the pics I have!
So going out into my front garden, we go to the end of the drive
Here is the damson tree that marks the driveway into the school opposite
We'll walk down the drive, the school is an old Victorian House set in 20 acres of land. It's where I'm chair of governors
Recently the Victorian fountain has been restored in the sunken garden
The trees in the grounds are just wonderful and I love seeing them as the seasons change.
Coming out of the school grounds we go down a hill to the old railway track, which is now a favourite dog walking trail.
It takes us to Rudyard lake, after which Rudyard Kipling was named, his parents honeymooned here!
We are going to walk all round, it is a very special place to me and one I come to a lot.
We come full circle round the lake to where we started, and we will return back along the track, up the horribly steep hill, which was never this steep on the way down!!
So you have now walked 7 miles I hope you are feeling good at having walked off the chocolate cake!
So now come into my house before you go and I'll stick the kettle on and maybe cause we've used so much energy up we could have another piece of cake, cause I think we deserve it.
