Up hills and down dales

We went for a walk with boyfriends parents yesterday in the Derbyshire Dales, it was one of those damp misty days, that eventually turned to rain.
Very sensibly the cows were lying down.

It's stil raining today so I've been busy catching up on my knitting!

Finally a joyous post. I have a job for next year. It's at one of my old placement schools, and I couldn't be happier! It won't be without it's challenges, but it will be somewhere I an be me, and not feel guilty about it!

I think the cows would approve!

Lots of hills

I've spent the week riding in Mid Wales, the area just north of Hay-On-Wye. None of the hills round there are very big, but they are beautiful swathes of open land where we saw no one all day. Beautiful wide grassy tracks to ride on, and of course the sunny weather all helped to make for a memorable week.


This picture was taken from the top of The Begwns at a place called The Roundabout, which I can't find any information about. It's a circular stone structure on top of the hill, with trees, the sort of thing that there must a history to, and if it was in snowdonia you'd have no trouble, but in this less visited part of the country you struggle!
