Chasing Autumn #4 - Exploring

It was my birthday last week, just one year off a milestone. Not looking forward to THAT very much! So we went on a distraction mission and went to visit a lovely little town we've meant to visit for a long time - Southwell.
It's a small, charming place of mellow red brick cottages, Queen Anne mansions and with lovely shops and cafes too. We walked around the green, taking in the wonderful setting and the scent of Autumn,

We bumped into Woody's old editor in Boots. Really nice to see him again, think he was a bit shocked to see us all the way over in north Nottinghamshire.

And the Minster. Well there's little I can say that the pictures don't. For a girl who loves early medieval history it was a bit of a pilgrimage for me. Just superb.

Happy birthday. I suspect that your milestone makes you very young in my eyes! It is a great decade so embrace it! The minster looks amazing, I always think about the people who built these places and wonder what their lives were like. History is amazing. Lovely posts recently x

Happy birthday for last week Steph, I'm 42 now and I'm actually enjoying every bit of being in my 40's, so relax it is all GOOD I promise! What a superb day out for you and your family, I only hope that one day I make it across to see all of this for myself, you captured the wonderful architecture of these amazing old stoned heritage buildings is truly stunning. Thank you as always, Simone xx
