The view from the back door at breakfast time. I put some washing on and some bread to rise and we set off not daring to leave a walk till after lunch in case the sunshine didn't last. We didn't want to do a long circular walk in the countryside as we could just imagine getting nearly to the end and having to turn back due to flooding and in any case I had to get back to deal with the bread - didn't want it taking over the airing cupboard! Want to come with us?
here although we didn't go via the wood as it had poured with rain last night and it would have been very muddy.
This little blackbird was busily whirring his wings in a tree at the bottom of one of the gardens - fun eh?
We reached the end of the lane and now we were on residential roads and not far from the local Post Office where we bought our paper and headed home. The sky had by now turned dark and looked like snow when a heavy squally shower hit us - boy was the rain cold! Luckily we were not too far from home and had come prepared with waterporrof coats with hoods. By the time we reached our road the sky was blue again and the sun back out. The bread was ready to be knocked back and the washing had finished its cycle and we were ready for a coffee. Just over an hour walking in the fresh air had recharged my batteries as I knew it would. I made some soup to have with the bread for lunch and got my washing dried and ironed and felt well satisfied with my day!
