Inspiration is Everywhere
This weekend I visited London with my husband. There are a few places we always go to when we visit London one is for a walk on a Sunday morning along The Mall and getting to Buckingham Palace and looping around to St James Park and walking through that to Royal Horseguards. Unfortunately now with my current health problems I have difficulty doing this so we had to forego that but hopefully one day I will get to sit on a bench and watch the green Parrots. The other thing I love doing is visiting the Southbank where there is a carousel. I love the horses I think it's ever since I was a child watching Mary Poppins over and over again. I want the horse I am on to jump off and take me on a adventure it hasn't happened yet but a girl can dream.
My family did ban me from going on them for a while because one day I got so excited I fell up the metal stairs which resulted in a bruise on the bone of my shin so each time I go on know I get a pep talk about not running etc. I always pick the horse that is lowest because I can't get on the high ones, I never take notice of the name of the horses I am on but this time my husband pointed out that my horse was called James and I thought maybe this would the day when I get to go on my adventure. For those who have read A Special Place you will know that James is one of the Main Character. Sadly I just went round and round maybe next time
For me being out and about is a joy I see inspiration everywhere I have just finished writing book two and although there is no carousel in it. I am hoping that will visit a book later on. Book two does feature a few places that I have found and visited on my travels including St Catherines hill and Chapel in Guildford and Creswell Crags in Welbeck. I am off to Guildford again this week so who knows what inspiration I will find on my travels.
