I'm not too proud to roll

Recently life seems to be changing, everything feels different, not in a bad way or a good way, just different.  The one constant is my little family and the time we spend together.  Over the last few Sundays, though the weather is getting colder, we have made a conscious effort to spend our Sundays amongst nature.  The first few Sundays were spent at Kelsey Park strolling through the park, having lunch or going on a nature hunt but this week we decided a change of scene was necessary (the big girl was getting bored and wasn't impressed when I told her about the rats I'd seen).

We had attended a baptism service in the morning, where a young man, who will always have a special place in my heart, gave a moving speech about his reason for wanting to be baptised.  Despite not practicing any religion myself, it still warms my heart to see young people choosing a life of servitude and love, which is so different to what a lot of our young are choosing these days.

With the little one getting restless we left straight after the group were baptised and drove to box hill for our afternoon stroll as I knew if I went home and started dinner first I would not be coming back out again.

Box hill was given to the National Trust 100 years ago and is a stunning place where you can view the surrey countryside, take nature walks, cycle, fly a kite or help the kids tick off one of their 50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 whilst having a little fun of your own.


We were certainly not dressed for the occasion but had lots of fun and plan to go again soon and explore what else box hill has to offer, I'm especially interested in visiting the stepping stones and the natural playground.
