‘A little stone barn at Warren Carr ‘ the Peak District’ by The Nester

Well I’ve just cleaned this gorgeous little stone barn in Warren Carr, which is near to Darley Dale at Matlock –  in the Peak District. I’m all ready to move on tomorrow, where I will be staying in an old town house on top of the hills at Tideswell. It’s right in the middle of the National Park. It’s been beautiful here. I shall miss the quaintness. Seeing deer, chickens and geese each morning. I will be honest, it’s full of chintz. Not my taste. But that’s why I love it. The lady who owns the barn is a bit of an eccentric. I’ve been hiring her entire past. So ornate. I was worried to death I’d break something. I did. I somehow broke the Aga, two dishes and a saucer. Nonetheless, an Aga is on my wish list. I cooked like a demon – not easy when you’re an Angel, but I did … Going to walk the dogs – daydream. Be grateful. Glad I am real. True to myself. Detached.
