The little pleasures

The view towards Ashover Rock, just visible to the left on the horizon.
I've been up at the farm for a nearly a month now.

I am still slightly surprised but very happy to see occasionally people sitting on the bench.

The bench my friends bought for my fiftieth birthday still brings me little presents.

Full evening sunshine after a heavy fresh shower.

The view walking towards the bench from the farm.


  1. Hi Nick, I regularly sit on your bench when I am out walking the dog, never walk past it without having at least 5 minutes to take in the view and have a bit of a ponder. Thanks to you and your family for providing it. (Are you related to my old primary school teacher Mr Luft?)

    1. Great to hear you like the bench. It's in a great spot for a bit of pondering.

      Yes, I am John Luft's son. I used to go to Holmegate Primary School for my junior years about 1969 - 1973.

      John and his wife moved to the farm nearby in 1984, after he had taken early retirement.
