slow down and notice

Back from a relaxing holiday which was a bit wet on occasions but we don’t let a little thing like rain spoil time away.

We visited a few places … vineyards, Leeds Castle (thanks Jen and Paul!), travelled on a steam railway and generally laughed and marvelled at how the children are growing up.

It was a great experience traveling on the steam railway. The character of the coaches, the clunking of the doors, the springy seats, the slow ramble through the countryside all made the experience so much better. It caused us to think that not all that is new is necessarily better. Sometimes, slowing down and having the time to not only notice but enjoy the environment around you is a great experience.

If we never do that we miss out on so much.
