Off on our jollies again tomorrow. Derbyshire this time (near Matlock). So excited about it. Derbyshire is one of my ancestral places. Mum was born there, and all her ancestors back to the year dot. I was at teacher training college in Derby, stayed there for a further 3 years. Daughter was born there. So I feel quite at home when we stay in the county. No doubt I will be doing a bit of grave digging if I get chance. Mr Blue and Ness will have to be patient. The weather forecast says it is going to be a very hot week, which may curtail us a bit as far as walking is concerned, and driving a long way, but hey! Better than snow. Cool clothes packed. Ness has a cool coat and a cool mat. I may be borrowing them.
