Sudbury Hall

I enjoy visiting Stately homes, well any historical building really, I can wander at my own pace and caught up in my own thoughts. I love looking at how the wealthy (or poor in some cases) used to live. Beautiful architecture with decadent decor and filled with luxurious furniture. Bliss!

What happens when you own nosey kittens…

Late yesterday afternoon I was sat outside in my messy, half completed garden with my macro kit randomly shooting flowers to while away an hour or two and to alleviate some anxiety. So just as I fire the shutter, my very sweet but nosey Monty decides he wants to see what I’m doing.

I love a happy accident, but now I’m determined to see if I can get a similar shot of Monty’s sister Milly!
