I’m always conscious of living in a temperamental climate and any minute Spring/Summer might disappear for another year and we’ll have snow in August (I really hope that is an exaggeration!) So as soon as Mr Sun makes an appearance we try and get out into the countryside if we can.
I love to visit Canal paths, they’re usually flush with wildlife and yet developed enough to be an easy track to plod along.We visited one near Cromford in Derbyshire yesterday and had a wonderful day. Mr Dog enjoyed nearly getting into the water (I think he’s secretly a bit scared of getting wet).
It was also an excuse to show off my latest purchase, a gorgeous Purple Satchel Bag by Zatchels. I’ve lusted after this beauty for quite sometime and finally ordered one last month. Due to their birthday sale it did take quite a few weeks to arrive (all Zatchels are made to order to your specification). It was well worth the wait 🙂 the quality is second to none and I’m thoroughly pleased. The only problem is that now I’m drooling over all their other designs. This is the 11.5″ version which I think makes it the perfect size for a handbag. You can’t fit a huge amount in but I still managed a phone, wallet, keys and a camera with a little tetris style organisation 🙂
