A quiet walk by the river. Savouring the spring sunshine and warmth. Smallest enjoying dresses and a cardi rather than the layers and layers of wool. Ok, theres still wool in the form of leggings and vests – but there are also dresses! Whoop (if your 4 anyway)

Blue bird skies and skipping ahead. Shaking off the last of the illness that has bogged us down and kept us indoors for the last few weeks. I have noticed a lightness and the additional relaxed chatter that falls (pours) from madam has returned since we made decisions on schooling. Her anxiety has receded and been replaced with a more buoyant confidence in where her path lies for the next while. It’s a delight to see and makes us all feel more settled and happy. 

She talks and questions constantly – literally constantly. She is interested in everything and anything and it appears has an almost eidetic memory. Most importantly she’s friendly and loving and great fun to be around!

Winters last Hurrah!

These were taken a while ago – real mid-winter stuff. An amazing walk up in the hills. lightly falling snow and perfect light. Very late to the blog.

Finally well enough to venture out and make some nature art. Or stack rocks on top of one another – as its also known lol

Hopefully blogging will resume now we are all better and the antibiotics have done their jobs. Flu, sinus infections, 3 week coughing. Surely spring is here?

We all had flu. Proper, knocks you out for 2 weeks flu. There has been a lot of iPad and cartoons and films. Just to get us through.
