Visited a nature reserve today, run by the local water authority. Several large reservoirs & lakes, with hides dotted around. Saw lots of birds, most of which were difficult to photograph, unfortunately. Did capture this striking-looking fungus, however.
Positive thoughts, day 8: a lovely day out at the Washington (UK) Wetlands Centre, with my best friend. They had a Lego exhibition, with giant animals & birds dotted around the area.
Positive thoughts, day 7: a relaxing afternoon spent sketching some crown imperial fritillaries. I really am no artist, but I think they are recognisable.
Positive thoughts, day 6: home-made sloe gin. No other words needed.
Positive thoughts, day 5: spent quite some time dog-sitting today, which mostly entailed providing a comfy lap for this little one.
Positive thoughts: day 4. OK, I missed yesterday. In my defence, although it was a pleasant day, it was also my late Mum’s birthday, so a little sad. I did manage a trip to a garden centre with friends, and had a cheese scone. Funnily enough, I did the same today, with a sneaky caramel slice added in.
Positive thoughts: day 3. A tiring, but fun afternoon and evening at Lodge, seeing a friend take the chair for the first time.
Positive thoughts day 2: Lovely walk in the forest this morning. Sunshine & everything that little bit more green than it was at the weekend.
