New Forest

Joe and I had a wonderful 9 days away in the caravan.  For the most part we staying in the New Forest and then moved up to Blaidon Chains Oxfordshire very close to Bleinham Palace.  In the main we had wonderful weather and time to relax.

Puttles Bridge in the New Forest – Ober Walk


I did have to do a bit of studying as I am doing GCSE French and my 2 hour written exam was Thursday night just gone.   I feel it went pretty well although afterwards you always think of things you wished you’d written.  I had to write 300-400 word for each paper which is quite hard when it’s not your native tongue and you’d wished you paid more attention when you were 16.  I positively hated French as a teenager at school!!!  Oh how much easier it is to learn when you are young compared with middle age!!!

Blenheim Palace was brilliant again and the weather was really warm.  We  visited it this time last year over a BH & it was really busy but as we converted out ticket to a year long one for no extra cost we decided to go back again.
