A day out in Barnsley

I travel a lot for work which is lovely – nowhere glamorous on first class flights but just round Yorkshire on the train (I don’t drive) which gives me lots of chance to read and think and look out the window. I love trains (which is good considering how long I spend on them these days!) and really enjoy meeting new people and the excitement of going somewhere. I will eventually get my own car – finances permitting but will still travel by train as you never know who you will meet!

Today I went to Northern College to see one of my students. The college is in a historic house which has the most lovely grounds and it is still very snowy there.

This picture was taken en route.

The following pics were taken at the college – I love the letter box which looks particularly good in contrast with the snow – all we need is a robin and that could be next year’s Xmas card sorted!
