A walking weekend in Derbyshire

Our walking has now progressed sufficiently to tackle a mini walking weekend. Not many miles really, but enough to make us stagger bow legged back to the hotel, grateful that there was a bannister on both sides of the staircase to haul ourselves up to our room. ☺
 The weather was bright and sunny but as we climbed higher it became bitterly cold and it started to snow.
 Ilam village is very peaceful.
 Then we were in exposed White Peak country.

The scenery is breath-taking. I used to hate walking. Now l can not imagine not walking~that gentle methodical plod of your boots seems to transport you away from life's stresses. And for those walking hours you are away from it all.

Looking through my photos there seem to be some common themes ~ walks, flowers, gardens and skies; lots and lots of skies. It seems that I look to the skies quite often. I think to look up from the busyness, stresses and trivia of the every day and see a vast sky reminds me that I am just a minute figure in a huge and glorious universe and my every day trivia is just that. L.x.

Ok, truth is I couldn't resist them. They smell amazing.

My phonics working wall at school. It amuses me that the one which has slipped is "ow"!
The kids choose a phonics star each day and they are in charge of the light sabre to point out the phonemes. Funny ~  I love it as much as the children ~ lol!

Keep calm and crochet!

My "to do" list is lengthy but it can wait. Today I will be drinking tea and crocheting.
I was in hospital earlier on in the week so I am savouring homey moments right now.
This weekend we shall see all our sons; altogether is rare these days as we are all scattered across the country.
And the weather is forecast warmer! What's not to like?!!
Happy weekend ☺
