“Hello Spring”

I don’t know why I’ve found it harder to blog weekly this year compared to when I was blogging daily last year! It has been a while – but I have taken lots of photographs I just haven’t had the time to share them. I’ve been battling a cold and whilst that was attacking me the flu decided to hit on Friday night giving me a delightful bank holiday weekend of minimal sleep – what hurt even more was that chocolate is making me cough so no Easter eggs here (sort of!)


I ended up trying to sleep on the sofa which didn’t really work out especially when Maisy thought it would be great fun to join me…


Today however I decided it was time to stop feeling sorry for myself and as the temperature hit 16 degrees c it was perfect weather for getting out there and enjoying the sun. We took Maisy to the meadow where she met up with Buddy and they tore around like crazy pretending that they hadn’t seen each other the day before. Buddy taught her how to get confident with the water and with a lot of tennis ball coaxing she was in and out of it constantly!

We’ve worked a bit on the garden, our Rhubarb is growing nicely and even waves at us when we look out the bedroom window (it is a bit windy!) We have a Clematis left to plant and just finished planting our Bay Tree yesterday..

Maisy has more or less behaved herself although there have been a few dubious moments. She has adopted a new chair, one we more or less use for putting things on. It’s the smallest chair in the house but she insists on squishing her butt into it..

And that’s about it for the last few weeks photographs. We photographed my Parents open day and likely if you follow facebook you will have seen a few updates about that. Bring on the sunshine for more outdoors photography – and Happy Easter!

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
― Charles M. Schulz

Easter Monday started off with weather that should have been delivered yesterday! Brilliant sunshine, warmth and lots of vibrant colours. We spent an hour or so of it wandering on the Meadow whilst my Dad cleared some of the storm debris (from earlier in the year) from the lakes (along with a bit of help from Becky and Chris…)


Buddy had his first encounter with a Swan who was guarding a nest fairly near to where the work was being carried out. Buddy decided it was a good idea to paddle in the water, at which point the Swan decided to show an interest in him and it ended with a narrow escape. It involved us shouting at Buddy to get out the water and Buddy deciding whether the Swan wanted to play with him or not. Luckily, all ended nicely for everyone but it was a close call!



The annual leave week is over and it’s back to work tomorrow, plus a few other things that should be happening this week which I can probably reveal once they reveal themselves! There is lots of Essay writing to be done to finish the last few months of university so it’ll be back to less ‘wordy’ blogs, a few photos here and there and heads down until exam day for me!
