Appreciating time outdoors and the need for a break from the world of technology… 

When I was little my mum and dad loved spending time outside either going for walks or spending time in the garden, and they would always drag me and my brother, kicking and screaming, along with them. I’m not sure why, but when I was little I hated spending time outside and would have much preferred to sit inside and read my book, I was such a weird little old lady even as a kid!

I feel in my adult years however I have come completely full circle and although I still prefer to sit and read a book, I really enjoy and appreciate doing it outside. I’m not sure if it is because of having a job and feeling restricted, or if it is just that I appreciate fresh air and the prettiness of being outside, but I love it so much more now than I ever have before.

I especially love this time of year when the flowers all come out in bloom and look so pretty. Living in a terrace house in the middle of a city centre limits my garden space and I love wondering around big, open, green spaces. This is actually one of the main reasons that I became a member of the National Trust. It only costs James and I £8.75 a month for a joint membership and we are able to go to as many different National Trust places, as we like. 

James and I spent the afternoon of last bank holiday Monday wondering around Beningbrough Hall, a property not too far away from where we live. It was so nice to just spend some time together, walking around, enjoying the nice weather, pretty plants and being technology free (apart from my camera). It was a real breath of fresh air, literally, to have a change of scenery and appreciate some time with nature. 

What are your thoughts about spending time outdoors?
