There’s an opportunity to get out, be out, be in the fresh air, or is that be out in the fresh air. We had take the morning to come to Shugborough Hall, and I can say I don’t think much of it. I was expecting so much more than a few pieces of wood.
In front of me I found an octopus, a wooden one, but still very scary.
However Teggy was having fun.
More fun than me.
To which I had to put a stop to it.
And climbed the tree house.
She soon joined me.
Afterwards we walked the parkland.
So tranquil and fresh.
And then we came to something I didn’t know existed.
A second tea room. We stopped and had some lunch. The cake was temtping, but good me resisted. Did the other two?
We visited the shop and then carried on our tour of the
Just like being in my back garden.
And here we have some fake ruins. All the fashion apparently.
I’m thinking of getting some. And maybe a big fountain.
We wander over the Chinese bridge, most likely brought off ebay.
Admire the follage
And the statues inbetween.
This one is of a cat of sorts. What sort I don’t know but looks most refined.
We head over the river.
And we play twigs.
And then recross the river to
enter the haunted woods.
Well they disappeared.
On the otherside of the haunted woods, lay a pool, a quiet and rippling pool, with the most beautiful birds gently merandering through the icy water like it was a summers day.
They are not shy.
We walk to the far end of field with Sara asking, “your are sure aren't you Nack that there is another way out”
And I was right and was wrong. With all the surface water there was no way out, well not without getting your feet wet.
And unlike the birds, none of us fancied that!
Back at home I check the visiting hours of the hospital. In a way the information is pointless, anyway I get in the car and head up north.
A while later I manage to park easily, I manage to be in the right area.
I even manage to be in the right building.
If only the patent was in the right building. I find out they are in the cafe with their family and head over to join them. Eventually their family leave and we keep chatting.
Some four hours latter after we had moved to the ward, I try to leave. Only I’ve been locked in! I ask a nurse for access out to be told, I’m not sure my card will open the door, I’m not usually on this ward. It does though and I head south back home, hoping I’ve made someone's evening a more enjoyable one.
