We live about 6 miles away from Hanbury Hall, a National Trust property with lovely formal gardens and beautiful parkland. As locals we know all the footpaths that lead onto the estate but, as NT members, we always go through the visitor entrance so that the house gets its share of our subscription(...and because I'm the sort of person who always gets caught!) Yesterday was a perfect day to take the camera for a walk across the park..
Eventually we cut down some lanes to the Worcester to Birmingham canal tow path.
The reflections were spectacular...
At the bottom of these locks we turned back up the hill towards the park. The air quality was so clear that I managed to capture this shot of the whole of North East Worcestershire...
I'm going back to my 'indoor' life tomorrow.....but only for 18 more teaching weeks!
However I know that there's a blizzard of 'silly stuff' waiting for me at school. At the moment I don't even know who I'm going to be working with at 8.30 tomorrow morning. The Greek Supply teacher may still be there OR (following the incidents that he was directly responsible for in the week before the holiday) there may be the Lovely Lady Supply teacher who I interviewed on the last day of term OR the Adorable Ex-Pupil Supply teacher.
I'm aiming for a 'Zen-like state of calm' at 7.20 tomorrow morning...!!!!
Realistically, I'll settle for a day that only requires one glass of 'recovery red wine' in the evening!!
To all other teachers out there... "Bon Courage!"
Only 5 weeks until Easter...
