photoblog image Bradgate Spring #2

Bradgate Spring #2

Close to where yesterdays image was taken in Bradgate Park, Leicestershire another shot with Precambrian rocks to one side and looking down on to Cropston Reservoir, one of several owned by Severn Trent Water, the local supplier of water to the area, oh and the almost mandatory lone seat as well.


One of lifes mysteries occured yesterday to which there is no known answer, ie: Why does the Fedex, City Link, or other delivery service call just at the moment one is in the shower, having a shave, or are otherwise occupied in the bathroom?  Answers on a postcard please.

I don't know the answer to that question, Brian, but love to hear you are still engaged in behaviours known as "otherwise occupied in the bathroom".
Brian Walbey: That's kind of you Ray, you know how it is when a man gets to a certain age, the bathroom comes in handy both day and night!!
I'd love to sit on that bench a while...

I've no answer for you, but whoever can answer it, might also know what the mysterious force is that always removes one sock from the laundry.
Brian Walbey: Yes the sock thing is another one of life's conundrums isn't it. If you and Frank ever venture to our part of the country then you must call in and we will take for you lunch and then to sit on this very seat and you can enjoy the lovely scenery in Bradgate Park.
This is a wonderful image in Bradgate Park Brian...

i don't have an answer why they call at such times...
but you can bring a cordless phone into the bathroom with yougrin

Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. When I say call I don't me on the phone, but at the door with a parcel, a very awkward situation if things bathroom are going on and nobody else is at home!!

A lovely view, Brian, to calm the spirit. As regards your question: Murphy's Law!
Brian Walbey: Yes isn't it just Ginnie, only a short drive from us. Bill used a slightly stronger word in place of Murphy's !!

The FedEx question revolves around sod's law Brian
Brian Walbey: Or Murphy's as Ginnie more politely put it smile

I do like that bench down there Brian, just waiting for a customer. Close to yesterday's but very different.
Brian Walbey: It is in a fine position to enjoy the surroundings and watch the world going by on a nice day.

I'm with Elizabeth sitting on the bench soaking in the sunshine and the view.
Brian Walbey: Being retired we can go and enjoy this parkland, and the benches during the week, at weekends of course the place is teeming with families.

I would like to take a seat on the rocks if theywere still a bit warm by the sunshine- the view might be a bit better than on the bench.
I don't understand your question - but I don't have to have a shave.
Brian Walbey: There are literally loads of places to sit in Bradgate Park, and the parkland itself is beautiful all year round. Re my question it means that more than once I've just got in the shower and the doorbell rings with a courier delivering a parcel, what does one do? Like all members of the fair sex of course you don't have to shave, I always refer to it as the male curse!

The bench looks so tiny in this big scene. Love your question. Answer: bad luck.
Brian Walbey: Yes this is a big parkland area in British terms and very attractive to walk through. Bad luck is as good an answer as possible I think, but it's very annoying isn't it.
It is known as Sod's Law Brian
Brian Walbey: Ginnie used the more polite word Murphy's, but I think we all know what I mean.
I am afraid I have no answer Brian! Lovely pano.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, just one of those irritating things that happens from time to time.

And the lone seat, Brian - well found!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl, there are loads of lone seats in Bradgate Park, I have photographed quite a few of them.
Nice.....

I don't think of Leicestershire having rocks; shows what I know. I'm fortunate that I can get deliveries at work. Difficult to carry stuff home on the bike, though.
Brian Walbey: My area of Leicestershire, Charnwood, is almost entirely built on the precambrian rocks, which are, apparently, some of the oldest anywhere.
