Stepping stones in Surrey


stepping-stonesThe window cleaner took me to Box Hill this weekend to walk. We did a short, steep, intense walk to the Stepping Stones and back up Burford Spur, where the picnic scene in Jane Austin’s Emma was filmed.  It was a beautiful place in its autumn colours.

I loved the film Emma, but was amazed to think of the huge effort the servants would have had to make to get the tables and food up to the top. It is a mighty steep climb.


We had already done a long dog walk in earlier in the day so cake was called for…

Our earlier walk was to the local park and we had a giggle watching this fisherman reel in a wayward umbrella…big-catch

Feeling very good after all the exercise yesterday I am afraid I have totally over-indulged today – more cake and biscuits and no walking!! Yikes.

Tomorrow is another day and all that.

One more week before the A&E placement starts and it has been good to have time off the ward. My cold bug lingered and only now am getting over it.

Today a good friend put up some coat hooks for me in the Tardis like room in the hall and I now I have a downstairs ‘cloakroom’. Things have been hung up and it is all looking so much more streamlined. Very happy.
