June 7th 2016
Today was a day of two halves. A house the first half and the garden the second. I have a plan. My plan is to go somewhere every week. My plan includes drawing a circle of about 50 miles from our home. 50 miles takes us about 35 minutes of travel. My plans include finding somewhere different to go to every week or so.

Stepping back in time
How wonderful that the beautiful, old house is being cared for and that you can return to visit when renovations are finished--something most travelers can't do. I love your idea of exploring a new place each weekend, especially since you have your CADW card. I love these old properties and gardens so full of history, but had to ration myself due to shocking costs. I also recently finished James Harriot's "All Things Bright and Beautiful," set in your Yorkshire Downs, so I love reading about your travels around there.

lovely places
Hi - the cost here can be high too . We join CADW as we are welsh and its cheaper than the English equivalent. National Trust is almost a hundred pounds a year to join. I find myself saving to pay for membership as it gives us such pleasure through the year. There are so many places to go to but I am gradually finding I am whittling them away and we need to go further afield . Price of diesel here is expensive. Most goes in tax to our government. It has gone up from 98p a litre to £1.10 this week and seems to be creeping up. Life is so short . Would love to get a motorhome and travel around NZ. It looks such a beautiful country.
