Summer 2014 will forever go down in our collective walking memories as being a warm and sunny one.
We range far and wide when walking both new ground or familiar paths. This particular walk was one we'd done many a time but it was the first time we'd actually noticed the roman numerals grooved into the stone wall holding back the waters of the upper reservoir. How had we missed these quiet remains of industrial beauty?
Yesterday was a really damp and wintery day - perfect for putting up the decorations. I had plenty of help in fact I was relegated to third (no - forth) in charge. Eldest and Youngest took over and Pepper-cat assisted greatly while I was delegated to coffee and tea maker and mince pie supplier....Not bad really considering that usually by this age, teenage lads are less than enthusiastic about decorating trees......... So, with out further ado here is a selection of our day.
Youngest is so much taller than the tree that we have boosted it. He happily was able to reach the top while I had to stand on a chair....it tickles him that he can get things for me that I can't reach :)
Pepper-cat particularly liked the lights and beads - please excuse the state of the carpet - tree decorating usually leads to casualties - mostly the carpet....
My door wreath in day light - I have definitely gone for the hedgerow look.
My little sun in the middle is to help call the sun back!
This evening, the tree came into its own.
Thanks boys (and cat...) I'm happy happy :)
