The prompt for today is: describe where or what you came from.
Hello again to new friends and old friends! I am so excited to be taking part in Jenni's Blogtember challenge, as I enjoyed it so much last time. I managed to blog everyday and met some lovely people too. Let the fun begin!
I started life off in a little market town called Chesterfield, a place very famous for a 14th century Crooked Spire! We lived in a three bedroomed semi-detached house across the road from my school to be, which was very handy! I had an attic bedroom which was my sanctuary. I remember picking my wallpaper; white with pink hearts!
My mum gave up work to become a stay at home mum and my dad had a job as a long distance lorry driver. I was very lucky to have a Nanna and Grandad I adored and I had their full attention, as I was an only grandchild until I was seven.
I remember receiving some lovely presents from them and I still treasure some of the things they bought me as a child.I spent a lot of time as a child with them, exploring the local area, going for walks and generally having fun.
My dad was always doing jobs in the house. I used to come home from school and he would have knocked a wall down! But as soon as he had destroyed the wall he would build it back up again! We got used to living in brick dust and treading on nails!
The town I live in is very near The Peak District. It is lovely to be able to say on impulse, 'let's go to Chatsworth today.' We are very lucky to have some beautiful halls around us and a castle down the road. There is always lots to do.
I still live in Chesterfield, which goes back to at least Roman times, and it still has some very old buildings including an inn which dates back to the 12th century. I recently decided to do a post on being a tourist in my town and I found some really interesting facts that I didn't know.
My daughters are eighteen and twenty and still live in Chesterfield too but they are ready to spread their wings!
As part od the Blogging Everyday In May challenge, the first prompt was to tell everyone about us. If you want to learn a little more about me, you can click here.
Thank you for taking the time to read my first post. I'm really looking forward to reading all yours.
Have a great Tuesday.
