Jensen and Jaden

 Our two adorable Grandsons

Dramatic Sunset

I just had to share these pictures with you!  I took them from the bedroom window on Sunday 8th December.

Sutton Scarsdale Hall

You can see from these pictures how grand the place must have been.  The hall was bought by an American who shipped the interior back home and left the shell - what a shame.  You can find out more information about the hall on Wikipedia

Sutton Scarsdale Hall

 These pictures were taken at Sutton Scarsdale Hall near Bolsover.  Even though it is just a shell now, it was very impressive.  Imagine what it was like in its heyday.

The picture to the right is of Bolsover Castle.

 Thought I had better introduce the lodger.  This is Spunky who decided he would adopt us and he has been with us for nearly a year now.  He likes yoghurt and spicy things! never known a cat like him.


Not been able to update my blog much as I have been working extra hours so Richard and I have had less time to get out and about.  But when we do I will post something about it.
