Blustery morning walk

I have got out of the habit recently of going for my morning walk and I woke up this morning realising just how much I had missed it! I don’t mind admitting that I was in a bit of a grump yesterday – it has not been an easy week and I was generally feeling…

That was January 2019

Well I blinked and that was the first month of 2019 done and dusted! It was a strange month in many ways as it was our first proper taste of having an empty nest. Our son Tom moved to Bristol at the end of November last year but it wasn’t long before our daughter Reya…

The first day of Autumn

So today is the first day of Autumn in the meteorological sense at least.  I prefer to go with the equinoxes and won’t really feel it’s Autumn until 21 September.  That said today was not very inspiring.  After a warm and rather cloudy start it was wet for most of the day. Here are a…

Absolute rubbish

This is not the first time that I’ve posted pictures of rubbish in the verges. Over the years since I’ve been doing my morning walk I’ve seen beds, sofas, computers, fridges, car seats as well as the usual litter that people chuck out of their cars into the verges.  I am always at a loss…

Carpe diem

Carpe diem

Today started at about 12.10am when our son woke me from that deep early night sleep to say that Robin Williams was dead.  I didn’t quite believe it until the morning when the early morning Radio confirmed his late night whispers. Oh captain oh my captain… Just over 12 hours later  we were at the Woodland Burial at…
