A summer evening

12 Jul

It was a beautiful stroll home from book club last week and I tried to use the travesty that is an iPhone camera to capture the lovely views I enjoyed.

It’s times like this that I remember why I like living here.

The idyllic view

We went to look at this place because there was chance we might be able to take it on. In the end, it was not to be, but it’s cemented a charming ideal in my mind of what we should strive for later in our lives, when we have real £££’s to invest in it and the desire to work exceptionally hard for a few years and follow it up with a beautiful little family to run around the grounds.

Not yet, though.
