Did you get the snow on Sunday? we had a light covering but it didn't stay long as the sun came out and it turned into a beautiful day..my favourite weather blue skies and very cold! The snow stayed on the hills for a while and they looked like those coconut mountains we used to make at school.
Pete and I went out for a drive..no stinky boys..its too uncool to be seen with parents nowadays. I've wanted to visit Ludlow for a long time, it isn't really that far and I've read on other peoples blogs about how lovely it is..so off we went with Red, all excited in the boot.
Halfway there the skies went very grey and we were in a snow blizzard! but when we got to Ludlow the skies were clearer and we only had the odd flurry of snow..it was still freezing though!
We walked along the river (Red is like a sealion when it comes to water,there's no stopping him, but it was too cold even for him!) and back up through the town where they had a little market selling antiques and nicknacks, it was coming to an end and people were packing away..(which was probably a good thing as I had no money for spending on pretty things!) but we could still have a quick look.
Then we walked through the lovely, mostly Georgian town...
These houses looked onto a pretty green and the castle walls...
all the houses are kept immaculately,
past the castle ...
and back down to the river.
(pity about the satelite dish on this pretty stone cottage!!)
Ludlow was much smaller than I had imagined, almost like an island with its bridges going across on one side.I also thought it would have more Tudor houses, but it was a really lovely place none the less and I would love to go again when the shops are open and I've got a bit of spare money!
We drove home via the Clee hills, you can see them on a clear day from the top of the Malvern Hills..we went there when George was little and a sheep stole his banana they're a bit over friendly up there..and greedy!!
You can just see the faint outline of the Malverns on the horizon.
So off home through the little villages and winding lanes to get back to our hills.
Thanks for all your support on the house front, we had another viewing on Saturday..really nice couple not daunted by the work, but wanted more rural..a different estate agent showed them round from the same company who totally got the style of the house and loved Cath Kidston! yay! She was great. The previous couple said the stairs were too steep (!?!)..they are normal stairs of normal steepness...I think they may be needing a bungalow!
Oh this is such fun!!
