As part of the walking festival, we have been doing evening walks this week. We have started at 6.30pm and managed to finish just as it got dark. The walks have all been very local, but we have walked places that hubby and I have never walked before. As I mainly "sit" at work, it has given me something to look forward to at the end of the day, and the weather has been perfect for it.

The walking group that we joined recently is holding a week long walking festival where they are walking in the local area every day. I am managing to walk all but 2 of the walks and loving walking a fair few miles every day.

When I was little, I spent an enormous amount of time with my grandparents who only lived a couple of streets away. They were more fun and far more interesting than my parents! And I didn't have to pester much with my Mama's before she gave in! Their sideboard (which now has pride of place in my home) was filled with the most fascinating items, most of which I ended up with over time - due to my pestering skills. One of the items I loved was this very old parish magazine which I didn't realise at the time was from the middle of the first world war. It survives in a fairly decent state, however the front page came back ripped of when I loaned it to the church to display 30 years ago.

You know I love the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and with it only being a few miles up the road from me, and free entry, I make the most of it.
