I made the mistake of washing my hair before they arrived and I spent the best part of an hour walking frosty fields with wet hair several hours later I was still trying to get warm.
|Grandma's Cottage AKA empty stable|
|The children leaving|
As they left the the stable I asked the Teacher if they would like to see the Buzzard and although they all live in the village they had never seen one. And then I asked if they would like to visit again in the summer to which they all shouted yes please. Their teacher then asked if they could come for a picnic I am so pleased that they will introduced to nature on their doorstep. We are a very small village but I expect several of these children have never been in a field full of wild flowers. ROLL ON SUMMER.
After they had left a quick trip to Costco was called for then a nice walk along the Sea wall with The Big Black Lab.

|BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS|
Today I went to my parents house it is only 25 miles away but sometimes the journey seems like 125 miles. I think I have mentioned before Dad has Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma after 8 years in remission and he looks so frail. Their cottage is tiny and I mean TINY 2 rooms up 2 rooms down and jammed packed with years of collecting all covered in dust .And at the moment they have a mouse problem not good when you have an elderly patient with a reduced immune system. The plan was i was going to clear out the space they call the kitchen measuring 8 x6 ft approx . After 4 hours and several sacks of rubbish it did not look much different really the cottage needs gutting and rebuilding but at their age this is not an option.I also had such a headache I just could not do any more I think this was caused by the thought of how bad it all was.
