Time for those 'happies' again, how the weeks are flying by now! Here are four things that have made me smile during the last week
1. A Walk from Baslow - On Wednesday we went over to Chesterfield to visit my sister. We decided to have a walk on the Chatsworth Estate at nearby Baslow. The weather was damp and drizzly but the autumn colours in the trees were wonderful.
2. The Yards - The yards is an area of narrow passageways and individual shops and cafes in the centre of the town of Chesterfield. Up high along the walls are sculptures of gloved hands holding a variety of different objects relating to the businesses nearby. The reason for the gloved hand is because of one of the former trades of glove making which took place in the Yards during the 18th and 19th centuries when it was full of cottages,workshops and outhouses.
3. A visit to Sudbury - Saturday was such a lovely morning that we decide to go to Sudbury and walk in the grounds of the Hall. We didn't go in the Hall this time as we'd visited last December for the Regency Christmas (post here) so this time we went into the Museum of Childhood which has changed quite a lot since our last visit.
4. Wall Art - I was fascinated with the paintings and decoration on some of the walls in the Museum of Childhood. I particularly liked the mouse pictures - I think they were depicting five differing ages of life, unfortunately a couple of them were behind a display case so I couldn't photograph them all.
Linking up with Little Birdie where '52 weeks of Happy' started. Each week you find just four things that have made you happy to share.
