I just love the weekly Random Momentsof Delight and this week I am on holiday so have pre-scheduled this post, hopefully Meghan will be able to put it in to her linsky.
I will have left yesterday 🙂 Off to sunny North Devon, it doesn’t even matter if it is not sunny, it is always is in my mind and holds a special place in my heart. So hopefully I am about to all week have lots of moments of delight.
But I wanted to share a couple of moments of delight, and they are the fact that I have accomplished two things on my ‘hit list’ from my It’s a lonely place blog.
I am even more chuffed, because I only wrote this list up a couple of weeks ago. As some of you might know I suffer with ‘chronic pain’ and this restricts my mobility in certain ways, so things people might take for granted, might be a big obstacle for me. Also through having this, one gets to appreciate so many things in life, to learn to love slowing up the pace and for me just adoring what ‘Mother nature’ provides in the beauty around us.
I live near Richmond Park, which is a huge area of outstanding beauty, full of forests and yes, deer. One is generally not allowed too close to them, besides which they move away. Being in a herd and the area so large, I was pretty despodant as to whether I would get the opportunity to take any pictures of them. The walking distance would be too far for me.
But surprise surprise, there was a herd nearer the gate, so I took my compact camera, slowly walked and got some snaps. Next time I aim to get the fully grown stags, though they scare the beejeezuz out of me LOL.
My second thing that I achieved was to go to the cinema. My kids always ask and I love going. I have not been able to go for what a year or more? I happened to find an old renovated cinema really nearby in Art Deco style and inside they have not so many seats but they are large and reclining. Wooohooo. Plus they have small tables you can put drinks on and one can totally stretch out your legs straight which is a blessing. So I managed 2 1/2 hours sitting to see Noah. Which I must say is great, but i wouldn’t take my children to it, I thought it suitable for them but not really in my mind, some bits quite distressing. I had a good old sob during it. I won’t tell you the ending incase you see it!
Thank you for reading as always, Justine x
