Work has suddenly blown itself out like a thunderous summer storm and is temporarily sitting quietly waiting for the next front to fly in. We're all at sixes and sevens in an odd mixture of relief at the respite and the urgent need to use this window of calm to catch up with mounds of paperwork whilst squeezing in new projects and ideas.
No wonder when, by the time I get home, I flump on the settee and attempt to knit a row or two, sip lemon tea and fight to keep my eyelids open!
Bring on the weekend I say!
Although a little cool today, we've had some cracking spring weather and as I sit here wrapped up wondering whether to light the fire, just looking at the pictures reminds me that there has actually been the most delicious spring days filled with sunshine.
One of my lunchtime walks happily provided me with both the above and below photos.
The ewe and her lambs resting in the shade and a Mistle thrush fledgling pretending not to be real.
I love it's whispery 'eyebrows' of left over fledgling fluff.
We had a small friend over for a week while his mum and dad were on holiday.
Youngest was besotted and they instantly became best friends.
We soon discovered that he liked to nap on the settee after a walk.....
Himself, completely out of character,
allowed this small indiscretion
and went around with a smile on his face every time he looked at the sleeping pup.
When he went back after his week with us - he was sorely missed.
We've done some decent walks recently.
Almost with obsessive fervour,
we've headed up onto the hills,
using the wild air as antidote to normality.
Here's to Friday xxxxx
