Hi, so how have you been?
All good with me thanks, I’ve been trying to get out and do more walking and enjoy the weather while it’s still relatively mild. The season change is so beautiful, everything has that warm Autumn glow which is a photographers dream.
Jason and I stopped off at Caister St Edmund last Sunday after work and just did a quick walk around the old roman town and took some photos. I’d also nipped out from work on Friday as it was such a beautiful day with clear blue sky’s. My theory is, if the weather looks good, get out and enjoy it.
On Wednesday we went to Loddon and Chedgrave to do a walk locally, the weather was quite drizzly at first but thankfully got better. The main issue was there had been heavy rain the night before and as we were walking along the marshes, it was understandably very wet underfoot and pretty muddy. I’m a real girl when it comes to mud, I don’t like it, but we had a good bimble through the countryside, the path was very overgrown and so making our way through the undergrowth, my legs got pretty soaked, jeans were not the best choice of clothing that day I can tell you! Our walk was cut short by a broken bridge, literally half the bridge sitting in the heavy flow of the river so we had to turn tail and come back which was a shame. At least we still got out and got some exercise, I think we ended up walking approx 4.5 miles so better than sitting on my backside and always lovely spending quality time with Jason.
Friday night we went to Scaresville at Kentwell Hall. Some of the guys I work with had suggested and arranged it. Jason was dubious to say the least, the thought of walking round a hall and grounds with people dressed up as ghosts and ghouls did not fill him with excitement as it did me, but as it turned out, he loved it. I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was, such a well organised event. There were 1400 people visiting this spooky attraction that one night alone!! We went through in a group of 10, single file, holding on to the persons shoulders in front and proceeded through many dark rooms where people leap out at you and try and frighten the heeby geebies out of you. We were very ably led by my colleague Scott who did a grand job of guiding us through. It was quite simply one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had and I will definitely go back for more next year, I can’t recommend it highly enough.
After having had yesterday off and attending a beautiful wedding reception last night, we also had a day off today. Jason and I having a weekend off together is pretty much unheard of so we have made the most of it. We did another 5 mile walk today, even more local this time, left the car at home and set off from the house. We walked into Bungay and all round the back of the golf course which was nice and peaceful. It was quite wet toward then end as the drizzle turned into rain but I need to accept you can’t always just walk in sunny weather. As long as I manage to get some decent photos, I’ll put with with the weather.
All in all, it’s been a great week. Next time we catch up, I can let you know how the joint 40th birthday party goes, it’s Saturday 24th October, smack bang in between J’s birthday and mine. Watch this space x
