I celebrated my birthday on Friday evening.
A few of my oldest friends came round and we had a little 'carpet picnic'..
On Saturday I continued to celebrate with a lovely walk round some National Trust land,
just to the south of Bridgnorth...
The sky was a fabulous colour...
There were shadows and reflections everywhere..
At the top of the valley we tried a new route, which extended the walk by a few miles..
We picked up an old lane, which was in surprisingly good condition..
Eventually we reached higher ground and the views started to open up..
These two cottages have a stunning view towards Clee Hill and the Welsh borders..
We picked up another old lane and dropped back down to the River Severn..
By this stage we'd walked about 9 miles and had a huge appetite
for the 'eat ups' from the night before..
I even had a small glass of 'drink up' red wine (birthdays and all that!!)
The end of November is a funny time to have a birthday....
My cards always have to fight for space with the early Christmas ones
and work commitments can be a nightmare.
However, I loved my 'low key' celebrations this time.
Winter picnics are really fun!
On other subjects...
At the moment I don't seem to be able to access any of the blogs that I follow through my dashboard.
I haven't a clue what's going on - but I just can't get to your latest posts.
Is anyone else having the same problems...
I wondered if I'd missed an update or something.
