Sunday 18 January a lot going on!

Two cottages out and one back in today but that had already been cleaned. Chris had a few jobs planned in Bluebell but the trouble was the sun was shining… Haven’t been for a walk or had some proper time off for over two weeks so it seemed a shame to waste the good weather. A quick think and opted for a short circular walk starting at Carlton Lees car park at Chatsworth. Being a nice Sunday meant it was busy and we shared our walk with many others. We had some lovely views of Chatsworth House from our lunch spot and when we reached Edensor we paid a visit to the church and the grave of Kathleen Kennedy, J F Kennedy’s sister who was related to the Cavendish’s of Chatsworth by marriage. A walk through the parkland of Chatsworth took us back to the car and then home. Chris put the shower room lino down in Bluebell and I got on with various jobs before our guests arrived about 5.30. After an early dinner went to Over Haddon for this months film, The Other Boleyn Girl. Local interest in that scenes of the film were shot at Haddon Hall, North Lees Hall and Dovedale, although I think I only recognised the latter. A good film.
