Short Retreat

Standard

During this beautiful hot weather in Britain

I went for a short retreat

to Norfolk to Thetford Forest.

Our accommodation was very secluded, and really amazing.

 

So quiet and peaceful.

This is so recommendable, just relax and chill.

The Lynford Arboretum just next door,

perfect for our evening walks… trees everywhere.

We did lots of walking in the forest and at Lynford Waters.

At night. as there was no light pollution at all,

we even saw shooting Stars from the Perseid Meteor shower.

Even a short getaway is a great rest and energy giver.

 

Relax in the sun

Standard

While the sun is shining and mum is still working,

I am going to do a short post for my feline and non feline friends.

I found some lovely new spots to relax.

The sun comes in through the window,

a perfect spot on the table,

I always have to keep moving though to keep up with the sun.

I found mum’s big beanbag, what a wonderful cosy spot.

and the sun gets there too.

This is the life.

I do get out more as it is warmer and sunnier.

As it is rather quiet outside,

so I do get my cuddles inside.

I think they are happy to cuddle me,

as they can’t cuddle or hug anyone else presently,

so I get even more. Yay

 

Hope you all stay safe!

We can get over this together,

doing the right thing!

Please look after yourself!

 

Punting

Standard

A day out works wonders – like a mini holiday.

You come back refreshed and relaxed.

I tried it for you to give you experienced advice.

We went for one day and night to Cambridge, the famous University town.

 

Cambridge is a city on the River Cam in eastern England, home to the prestigious University of Cambridge, dating to 1209. University colleges include King’s, famed for its choir and towering Gothic chapel, as well as Trinity, founded by Henry VIII, and St John’s, with its 16th-century Great Gate. University museums have exhibits on archaeology and anthropology, polar exploration, the history of science and zoology.

Walking along the river Cam are many bridges- hence the name Cambridge.

Bridge

 

 

We came along punters and we signed up for some punting.

 

 

What an amazing experience, what fun!

 

 

 

The Sky was blue,

the weather was hot,

a real mini holiday!

My advice:

Go for a mini holiday,

do something different at the spur of the moment,

enjoy every moment

and have fun.

 

You feel refreshed, relaxed,

ready for the new week!

Caturday- Snooze day

Standard

My mum has bought me a new cat tree….

however I made sure she knows that it is too high for me..

I am a senior after all.

She got the message and she took it apart again

and made two relaxing places out of it.

Now I love them and can happily relax!

I can choose the sunny place or relax in the shade.

Guest post: Cat in the Box

Standard

As my mum is out

I jumped on the computer

to show you my favourite places.

From the title you can see it is a box,

yes anything enclosed, I love

additional to my mum’s lap of course.

There are always new places appearing in my house,

boxes and others.

I utilise them all.

I promised my friend Binky to show my relaxing places.

So here we are:

the box on the sofa

 

the box on the floor

the tiny shoebox

the rocking chair

 

my mum’s computer desk,

I just swipe things of the desk and get comfortable.

 

the drawer in my mum’s son’s room

Yes I am allowed

 

Isn’t it just wonderful how many places I have to relax and snooze!

So now it’s your turn,

find a peaceful spot and have a snooze.

 

Wishing you all a very relaxing weekend!

Weekly Inspiration No 30 – Stillness

Standard

Slow down

find a moment of stillness.

 

Specially when you don’t have time for it,

sit down and be still.

Give yourself thinking time,

It gives you different perspectives,

it gives you peace and calmness,

it reduces the stress.

Focus on

Love, Joy and Peace

Weekly Inspiration No 7 – Do less

Standard

We are always so busy in our lives,

with chores, and general life.

Often we forget to look after ourselves.

Forget the mobile phone, and social media

switch off for a while.

read a book,

have a bath,

visit a friend,

write a letter,

Danny’s first trip in the 2017 took him to Norfolk in England.

He planned a relaxing weekend away.

A beautiful building with fountain
