Number Thirteen

Number thirteen on the list is to climb the Garth every season. Although it is quite literally outside my back door, as it's a bit too much of a trek for the under 5s, I don't do it as much as I should. But now it's on the list, Blod and I have been enjoying our quarterly climb to the top. It is bliss.

On Sunday we did our winter walk - although it was much more like spring. But we didn't mind that at all.

Oh, Hello Spring



It's been so lovely to see you this weekend. A little early, but very welcome. The girls spent hours playing in the garden, making potions out of rosemary and grass and water and mud. I sat in the sunshine and drank coffee. We went bike-riding and tree-climbing and paddling in streams. And, best of all, we spotted the first lambs of the season gamboling in the field by our house.

Epitaph

I spotted this on a bench at the Amelia Trust Farm last weekend. When I die, it's exactly how I'd like to be remembered.

Cheers Jimmy, whoever you were. It sounds like you were my kind of chap.

Feb Photo 11/29 Makes Me Happy


Tramping through muddy fields in my wellies with Blod in the winter sunshine.

(Although today has been a very happy day also involving a cuppa in bed with Cbeebies and my fav ladies, perfect scrambled eggs for breakfast, painting my bedroom with 6 Music in the background, this lovely walk and now off to meet Dave at Chapter for a beer, watching The Artist, then out for Japanese food.)

D's in work, so I'm giving Moll's dinosaur a bedtime kiss instead. Night night.

1. My View Today


A photo I took at work of a set being installed for a play.

2. Words


Gwen made my mum a card at school and wrote this herself - wowsers. The funny thing is, my mum isn't actually ill.

3. Hands


Molly, a carrot and some hungry. hairy, horse jaws coming her way

4. Sun


Late afternoon hazy sunshine coming through the trees in Bute Park

5. Front door


I wonder if a wizard or a pixie lives here?
