Come Sit By Me A While : Yesteryear And Sweet Dreams.
Well please come in and it is so nice to see you all again ; we had a wonderful holiday and crammed so much into four days !!!!
As many of you know we visited Nottingham in England ;a place which neither of us have been to before.
A peep at Nottingham City.
Our B&B was called Sunny Mount ;was a truly beautiful and restful haven.
It was home from home and if we do return then this will again be our chosen B&B without a single doubt. The whole place and Jen and Naemi were so friendly and nothing was too much bother.
I have asked their permission to include them in my 'Steps Back In Time' series.
Sunny Mount B&B Mapperley Nottinghamshire.
Bad weather had been forecasted so we were forewarned !!! However Sunday and also Monday were wonderful sunny days ; thereafter it rained but we were not bothered as we explored and lost ourselves in the wonderful historic charms and as you can guess our cameras clicking away non-stop.
It was maybe just a little disappointing that the castle was totally renovated to museums but we soon lost ourselves in the mystique and beauty which was still so evident all a round us.
On Tuesday we explored The Galleries of Justice and The City of Caves ; on Wednesday we explored Sherwood Forest also known as Robin Hood World.
We have so many photos of all these historic gems.
When I first began writing on HubPages I created many hubs titled 'Steps Back In Time' and have decided to once again compose many more in this series . I have not had time to create one by today hence this historic photo story enhanced with poetry.
I am hoping to have my first in this series published on Monday.
Now then aren't we lucky the sun is shining today and I am sure that our haven seems to have truly blossomed in the days we were away !!
Before I go any further I have to share some wonderful news with you all.
We came home to one of the most wonderful gifts ever; a new gorgeous grandson Kian .
There are now twelve grandchildren in all and each one as precious as the first !!!
Right as always tea and coffee on the table and as a treat some scones with jam and cream !!Let's just not worry about those waistlines today !!!
Our Gorgeous Grandson Kian.
Another new life
A gorgeous grandson to love
So bright each new dawn.
A miracle true
So innocent oh so pure
A love oh so strong.
Each tale so true
Historic gems shine bright
A calling as old as the hills
Strong the pulling of days gone by
A beauty magical and bright
Mystique so magnetic
Each step wondrous
Each Step Tells A Story.
Legends from days so gone by
Great stories to tell.
Castles so mystical
A memory to stay
Strong the pull of time gone by
Touching eager hearts
Legends as strong as ever
Every heart eager and inviting
So magical each step.
Blossoms of true love
Fill our hearts with wonder
Colours so wondrous
Inhale sweet magical scents
Such a soothing balm.
An enactment of The Robin Hood story.
A wondrous emotion
each face telling a story
full of romance
full of love
seeping through each stone
like a river of silver stories
seeping through ;
drawing out !!
Romancing each memoir
filling each heart
tasting the souls of days gone by!!
filling each gasp with delight;
to live forever
to weave a wondrous magic.
A true worth
from the humbling strength
of yesteryear's values
of momentous occasions
told through the years.
and never to forget.
each gem as each
so wondrously deserves.
Can you spot Dai ?
I hope you all enjoyed today's visit and I am now looking forward to creating my first 'Step Back In Time' hub for a very long time .
Take care of each other and as you go about your days stop to think of the very many historic legends which would have occurred on your own doorstep or further afield.
Take time to research if you so wish and maybe you will be surprised by your findings.
After all it's the gems of days gone by that have formed much of what surrounds us today.
Lots of love to you all from my little corner of Wales.
