Just under a month ago* S and I took a long weekend to celebrate our first decade together. In addition to a handful of sentimental places we visited some great English estates like Chatsworth (see previous post) and Lyme Park.
I really do enjoy traipsing through these houses and their extensive grounds. I especially love visiting the beautifully tended gardens, weather permitting.
Yes, summer was that bad but never mind, autumn's here and I'm embracing it fully. It's not so much that the grey skies, mist, incessant drizzle, hail, thunder and lightning (very, very frightening!) got to me - it's that they all occurred IN FULL FORCE in the wrong season!
On the upside it's woollen weather, right?
In case it looks familiar, the pictures above may be better known as Pemberley from the BBC's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, the Colin Firth one.
Enough with the rambling, disjointed thoughts; for whatever reason, I struggled writing this post. But I'll be back to my usual, upbeat self (complete with yarny goodies and maybe even some knitting!) next day.
*the gap in-between posts is due to camera issues. Despite my best efforts, I had to delete all 300+ images on my camera's memory card. In vain I fought this simply because the pictures on my camera
are were not just sentimental but also kept me company in moments of need, sorta like silent friends. Mostly, photographs are deleted from my camera once uploaded to my computer but I make a point of keeping the best ones. These are the ones I flip through in moments of homesickness whilst on holiday or field trips; when anxiously waiting at the doctor's; when waiting for the bus/train/plane; when I stop for a snack on a long walk...the best/happiest moments of my life in recent years.
