Lee Brockhurst Walk

I sat in bed with a cup of tea and opened my birthday presents and cards. I have to confess I was struggling for enthusiasm to go on the walk we had planned which is most unlike me. This was only because we had had to cancel our planned trip to Sherbourne at the last minute.

Mr C ploughed ahead with our plans and, once out of the house, my enthusiasm returned. We stopped off at Tesco to pick up some items for a picnic lunch before driving to the start of the walk at Lee Brockhurst. Initially, we struggled to find the starting point but once there we enjoyed our picnic lunch overlooking Lee Brockhurst’s war memorial before setting off in glorious sunshine for our walk. The walk took us along part of an old Roman road, through woodlands and fields. The autumn colours were glorious, as was the sunshine and we had the route almost to ourselves. I decided along the way that I need to acquire some lighter boots with more flexible soles.

Just as we arrived home one of my nephews phoned to wish me a happy birthday and we had a lovely long chat with him before it was time for me to get refreshed for the evening.

Whilst Mr C was preparing dinner I had a Zoom meeting with a few lovely WW ladies who wished me Happy Birthday after which I had a brief chat with my mum. I was shoed away from the kitchen and dining room so I sat in the living room with a glass of Ruinart Champagne. When I was allowed in the dining room I found confetti, candles and sparklers. The menu was; salmon pate in leaves, Catania style haddock and then boozy pears, chopped hazelnuts, melted chocolate and a scoop of ice cream.

  1. Lovely walk, lovely food. Would you considering hiring out Mr. C. to come up and organise a day and cook some food for us some day? A kind of “personal trainer” but without the training. “Mr C. the Personal Carer”, perhaps? A business idea for him :)

  2. The Yum List says:

    What a lovely celebration. The meal looks delicious.

  3. A belated happy birthday and what a wonderful autumnal walk! The food looks delicious too :)

  4. It looks a lovely way to celebrate with a good walk and a special meal cooked for you :)
