This is a photo I took last year when we went for a walk in Bradgate Park, the trees are very old, the lady sitting on the bench is Kathleen. We went back to this village yesterday, we had lunch and then went walking through the village, the sun had come out and everything looked ready to burst, buds were beginning to pop everywhere and the catkins are really long and luxurious this year. It is a very typical english country village with lots of thatched cottages a tiny country school, a cricket pitch and a few shops. There was a little shop which had just opened it was tiny but full of lovely bits and pieces, as we strolled back through the village we talked about how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful area, there is so much to be thankful for and liking where you live is one of them.
