I spent an afternoon in the New Forest last week. Possibly it wasn’t quite as brown as the photos below are showing, but that’s my overriding memory of the place. Luckily though I rather like brown, after all it’s the colour of coffee, chocolate, humans and teddy bears – all the good things in life!
I realised when I was there how very few of my hours each week are spent out of doors; doing things like breathing in proper air, walking on non-man-made surfaces, that sort of thing. Whilst I’ll always be a city girl at heart, I always feel so much better after connecting with the countryside.
I think my new years resolution will be to engage my inner Bear Grylls and get a bit more intimate with Mother Nature – I hear she’s quite the awesome babe! (So long as it doesn’t rain).
