It felt so fantastic to be able to get out of the house this week-end. Having been cooped up for four weeks with the allergic reaction to Amoxicillin it felt good once again to be fit and healthy!
Yesterday we visited Alresford in Hampshire. We walked around the shops and had lunch at Pizza Express.
I did take my camera with me but didn't take any photos!
I saw this lovely blouse / tunic in one of the shops and I commented to the OH how gorgeous it was but a bit out of my normal price range! Do you know what that wonderful man did he only went and bought it for me!
Today we headed to Selborne with the dogs. The OH did some quick internet research and found a cicular walk for us to follow. The walk was listed as taking an hour and a half to two hours but it took us two and a half! We did have a few stops though - to retrieve George, the spaniel from streams and puddles and Charlie and George from being over friendly with other dogs - bottom sniffing and the like!
Isn't the above cottage fabulous - it was one of the first we came across as we followed the route!
We came across trees and streams - the air was full of birdsong - Spring is surely not far away!
George - in the stream! He wasn't going to be hurried out of it!
All the leaves were dry underfoot. All was silent except for the birds singing in the trees and the crunching of the leaves!
This horse came up to the fence to greet us and without being able to speak he told us that he wanted grass!
Someone was very obliging!
We'd got the dogs back on the lead at this point as we didn't want to scare the horse. Having got the dogs under control, we had to get Miss. K. under control as otherwise she would have stayed here a good half hour feeding that horse which reminded me of Black Beauty! I can hear the theme tune from the 1970's going around and around in my head! It was one of my favourite TV programmes!
We came across a pond and some lakes!
The surface of the water was like a mirror!
And the reflections were stunning!
Many of the trees had ivy growing up them!
All too soon we were back to where we'd started!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
I'm off now to wash some dishes and to do some ironing!
