Tonight I went for an evening walk and explored the local green spaces. Realised how lucky I am to live minutes away from two parks and a beach! Each park is also quite distinctive. Orchard Park is a traditional, Victoriana Park with a large, lawn area, bowling green and play park. Barnhill Rock Garden on the other hand consists of rolling hillocks, lots of different plants, secret paths, ponds, streams and secluded areas to sit and relax in. Then there’s the beach but I write enough about that in this blog anyway!
By the way, having a technology-free day yesterday was really quite tricky, particularly with the political situation at the moment so I must admit to turning on the television to find out what the latest was! But…I did not look at social media or turn my tablet on all say, and actually it was a relief to escape the torrent of posts that people are putting up. I am a bit appalled at how difficult I found this challenge so if there’s one thing I plan to take away from this month it will be that I try to have more ‘unplugged’ days in the future – my target is to get to the point where this happens once a week, probably a Sunday. I’ll keep you posted with how I get on!
Well that’s Monday done and I only have three more days left of this challenge! Thank you for reading!
