Not a Million Miles Away!

Just thought I would mention that this past weekend we took the caravan out up into the Peak District, not too far from where we live, maybe 30 mins. Some may say a bit of a waste of time going that close to home but the thing is, if we had stayed at home we will have been flooded with visitors or found jobs to do etc..

Anyway we stayed near Buxton which is central for most parts, we love walking up in the hills and so does Milly our dog!

I thought I would give you a taster of what its like to live up here in Chesterfield and its surroundings. It really is well worth a visit if you can manage to get booked in a holiday cottage.

Here are a few pics, unfortunately I had to take them on my phone because my son seems to have commandeered my camera:

She sure is. We love her to bits. I just came across the recent pictures of your cats, don't they look the business!

I read that "phrase" in a book a week or so ago and it to made me chuckle, how true it is..

We consider ourselves very lucky Lindags. We love it here and HJ is right, it really is a gorgeous part of the world.

HJ, do you recognise Curbar Edge and Cavedale?

The walk along Curbar Edge is amazing, more so if you do it on a clear day. I took Milly up there on Sunday morning and the weather was appalling. We got drenched!

Just a short way from there is the Grindleford Station Cafe which provides huge helpings of walking (and climbing) fuel by way of amazing breakfasts.


You mean this?
