Syon Park

Sometimes you just have to pack up your rucksack and go. Forget about anything that's bothering you and just take off. One fast train took me to S and R, who drove me onto Syon Park. I walked around the beautiful house and gardens bathed in sunshine. Beyond the conservatory gates, was a mini-garden/courtyard protected by Eros who was 'floating' in the centre of a fountain.

I couldn't stop clicking my camera and I couldn't stop smiling either. The buzz of capturing images, taking time out sitting on the bench beside the fountain and talking nonsense with S and R was just what I needed. There really is more to life than just worrying about what's missing from it. This is something I need to remember more often.
