Two chocs

Headed over to meet a friend for an early morning ride around Blickling. It’s fast becoming one of my favourite places to take Buddy. Another thing that could become a favourite is a National Trust hot chocolate. Oh my goodness! We both had one when we got back to warm up.

I’m so grateful to have my own transport, a horse who loads and travels well and friends to ride with.

Another little outing

Buddy and I headed over to Blickling Estate NT today to meet my friend Katie and Archie for a long hack. Felt very autumnal today as so many of the leaves are turning.

We met up with another friend Maria and her dogs on our way back as she’d come to find us.

Great to catch up with them both. Even better to have a spot of lunch in the sunshine.

I do love our little outings. I’m so grateful for the Buddymobile. I love being able to get out and about. Blickling is so beautiful. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to ride round.

Blickling Hall

Ruth and I headed over to Blickling today. Well it seems appropriate given she works for The National Trust. It’s the first time I’ve been inside. It’s definitely worth it.

Things I have learnt today…

  • Anne Boleyn was born there
  • it has the most important library in all of the National Trust properties
  • when Globe Artichokes flower, they look like giant thistles
  • the Tamerind deliver!!

OK so that last one wasn’t about Blickling, but it’s still very exciting. We had the best curry tonight and didn’t have to leave the house. This could be rather dangerous!!

National Trust

Today my friend Colette took me to Felbrigg Hall NT for my birthday outing. First time I’d been there. In fact it was the first time I’d heard of it. So glad we went though. It’s beautiful there. Wandered round the walled garden, had lunch in there cafe, then wandered some more through the woods and to the lake.

It was a lovely day indeed. And we managed to include a saddlery and a garden centre on the way back.
