We decided quite out of the blue, to go away for a few days so we took off on Wednesday mornig, and that's why I have been missing for a few days. We went to Cheshire first to see friends and at the same time visit Little Moreton Hall, a National Trust property which I had been wanting to see. John had been when he was young but it was nice to see it together.
We then went to the Peak District and did some walking and had a great time. The weather was just perfect for walking. They were circular walks so I could lace up my boots and walk too.
On the way home we decided to visit somewhere else I had been really longing to visit - the National Memorial Arboretum. Oh my goodness, what an experience! Truly moving and very emotional! We walked around for almost four hours and still didn't see everything. So that means another visit because I really want to see everything. I felt just the same when we visited the War Cemeteries in France. Both totally moving experiences.
Some of the monuments were fabulous and I took loads of photos but I won't bore you with them. One of the things which really moved me was an inscription on glass on one of the memorials. It was of two poems written by an 11 year old girl. - amazing! If you open them in a new tab you can read them easily. The second poem brought tears to my eyes.
Anyway, sorry for waffling on for so long! I have just got a couple of new embossing folders and another Spellbinders die, so I will play with them now and hopefully post the results for you tomorrow.
Enjoy the rst of the weekend and the great weather. With love from Christine xx
