Escape to the Country

I'm a little bit country.
My childhood was spent living in a village in the Vale of the White Horse
with my pony riding on the downs.

Childhood memories of an English Summer
come thick, fast and always with a big sneeze.

I have largely outgrown the grass-fuelled hayfever of my youth,
by not trotting around country lanes, becoming a city slicker helped.

Somehow on life's rich journey I ended up living in some of the most amazing cities in the world Bruxelles, Hong Kong, and Melbourne.
I love going back to my roots!

I wanted to give a little shout out to Lechlade, a pretty local town on the edge of the Cotswolds. It was recently yarn bombed by the Women's Institute and looks fantastic. 

I love the town's spirit, you see they have been subjected to two arson attacks which destroyed their Community Memorial Hall. I heard they lost all the towns flags. Well the woolly street art has really brightened the place up.

Three cheers to the Women's Institute yarn bombers!

Linking with thanks to Jeanne at Blue Monday
