Living in the city is brilliant, but sometimes I feel a little hemmed in. Without sounding horribly hippy my soul needs some green spaces, open skies and a space to run. My children need time without so many rules, and freedom to explore.
We are so fortunate that in Bristol there are many lovely places to escape to locally, some have become regular haunts but there are still some places that we haven’t visited. Last weekend we got out our National Trust membership cards and headed for one such place, Tyntesfield, It was wonderful.
Wonder Girl walked far further than she ever gets the chance to in the city.
Super Kid kicked leaves.
Super Kid and Robo Boy explored, and ran, and explored some more.
I was even captured running.
It was a blissful, perfect day, I was reminded why I love my family and my life.
its so lovely to get out to spacious places isn’t it. our kids love it! and are so much better behaved because they’re so happy. B
Yes it’s really great for children to get the chance to be free, helps them behave better when they have to live with the usual rules.
Looks like you had a lovely day out. Great photos, love all the crunchy leaves.
Thanks, we love kicking crunchy leaves.
We live in the countryside but we still need to be reminded to get out and enjoy it more often. I especially love going out when it is cold and sunny.
Me too, nothing nicer than a hot chocolate in the warm after a lovely walk.
Looks like a beautiful setting …. will look even more beautiful in the snow!
