It can only be said that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I was grumpy, I was sad and just generally unmotivated. Yet, amazingly, for the first time in months, I’m writing a blog post!
Basically, my husband used his incredible patience to push me out the door and onto a walk down to Sutton Gault as he was leaving for work. He knows me so well. He knows that a walk does me the world of good if I can only get started. It did take me about 15 minutes to actually start enjoying my walk but I knew that if I hadn’t got to the gault then, well, he’d pull a sad face at me.
But I made it. I read the new sign they’d put up that told me about the area. I promptly forgot everything the sign said except that it wasn’t far to Mepal Bridge. So I decided to walk there. Turns out it was a bit farther than I was expecting, but I didn’t have any pressing errands to do today. I’m so glad I did though.
I walked farther along the bank than I normally do and discovered a beautiful hidden wonder. The path split in two and down one path was a cute little copse with some beautiful trees – it felt very secretive! Beside the other path was a beautiful reedbed. Some open water and lots of reeds. I have a soft spot for water and reeds and the animals found in them so I’ll definitely be going back to visit some more!
So who’d have thought it? Woke up on the wrong side of the bed, but nevermind, I found a beautiful new place to go and visit.
