“Blessed indeed is the man who hears a gentle voice call him father.”
― Lydia Maria Francis Child

Father’s day consisted of seeing the Grandparents, helping make a roast dinner, tidying, cleaning and venturing to the meadow. We bought Dad some socks, a mug, maltesers and bacardi breezer – what more could a man want?


The weather wasn’t 100%, but that doesn’t matter – the weekend was nice anyway. I spent yesterday not revising or writing essays – and not feeling guilty about it! A bit of shopping, a visit with some friends and Life of Pi in the evening finished it off nicely.

9William even posed a few times too! It was lovely just being out in the sunshine, and forcing the hay-fever to peak and then regress a little. I’m feeling a lot more refreshed after a day of being very ill yesterday so the calmness and relaxing environment really helped…and inspired me to get snapping again with the camera!

Just an update on Star, she’s doing really well and whilst she’s not up to roaming the meadow anymore, she’s doing really well at roaming the garden and house! Here’s some upbeat music to go with the mood of the day…
