Some views of Cheltenham and the surroundings.

Today was the weekly family walk up Cleeve Hill.  So today I decided to show some of the views that can be seen from the hill as it was a lovely blustery day with a low lying mist over the valley.

Cheltenham is famous for the races and this weekend has been a three day festival The Open.  We had a lovely aireal shot of the course.

From the distance their is a good land mark that is often used called the "3 masts" these are television masts and can be seen from a long way in the distance.

From a walkers point of view when being on the hill the wind swept tree and the three seats beneath is also a good point to head too. 

The cloud formation was lovely this morning with a really strong blue sky and white clouds.

From Cleeve hill on a sunny day you can see for many many mile, but today it was shrouded in a lovely reddish mist.

At the moment my blog can't be complete without pictures of the beloved Indie who is growing rapidly and becoming more adorable every day.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous dogs captured with some fantastic photographs. It really makes me happy to see them running and playing and enjoying the wide open space :) You must be very proud of them all.

  2. That's one of our favourite walks too, but each time I've forgotten to take the binoculars!
    We also forgot that it was race week and at the weekend went into town for a curry and it was heaving. Luckily, we went for an early sitting as we had Monkeychild with us, so were out of town by 8pm!

The break is over.

Looking back on my blog my last entry was October, so a long break of 6 months!

A dear friend suggested I get back into blogging. I was unsure as I am a private person and wondered whether too.

So over the past week I have been going through the reading list of people I follow and really enjoy the ability to read and view image's.

I started this blog as a type of diary to be able to look back. I am definately not they tyle of person to do a "visual" blog and admire people who can sit in front of a camera and do that and I do so love to watch. So from the safety net of words and picture's I will share my love of photography, which is all done on my phone. My passion for knitting, my garden and what ever else I want to record for "safe keeping ".

So if you have a spare bit of time please do enjoy with me and let me know what you think.

I'm kicking off the blog with some of the trips I have had.

My first trip out was in Decmeber to my special place Slimbri…

Trip to Tewkesbury

This morning I woke to this poignant message having being sent to me by a good friend. I was unsure what to do with my day as I had no plans and the weather was set to be nice. 
So I decided to heed the advice and set off to Tewkesbury. 
On Friday I had treated myself to a nice new pair of walking shoes so this would be a great first outing for them.

Not even five minutes into my walk I spotted this beautiful Bluebells.

My first stop was a place called Lower Lode, Tewkesbury  you come down to the River Severn and the viewing point looks over to the 13th Century B&B/pup/campsite which was very popular today.

I decided to sit and people watch and listen to the bird's singing for 5 minutes whilst knitting a little of my new sock.

I then headed back the same way and walked across the park with the majestic Tewkesbury Abbey as the backdrop .

Here I sat for a little longer and listened to the bell ringing and watched as a coach load of visitors from Nottingham came to look around t…

Road to happiness photo session.

I live in the cotswold town of Cheltenham.  It is a very multi cultural town with some great area's for photography.

Today I decided to cycle along a route called the Honeybourne line which is an old disused railway line.

In 2017 #cheltenhampaintfestival create an amazing event that meant many area's were painted by incredible street artists.

One of who was done by Vanesa Long Champ an incredible artist based in London who has travelled widely.

Inspired hughly by Laine magazine I took photographs of my newly completed garment which I have called Road to Happiness.  One is a short sleeve top and the other is a love sleeve jumper. 

The garment is a boxy style comprising of lace, cables and moss stitch. I love the garment so much I will be making another and am going to design socks, cowl and wrap to complete the design idea's. 

Please do enjoy the picture's .
