Brrr it's definitely autumnal here.
I've missed a couple of weeks here so lots of things to be grateful for including:
1) My trip to Ireland with friends. You can read about it here. It was so lovely to get away and we had a great time.
2) A hubby who is happy for me to do my own thing from time to time as in leave him here for a week while I get away with friends. Thankfully he can be quite independent although we did have an interesting conversation during the week about how to set up the washing machine.
3) Catching up with the Grandkids. We saw Vinny and Rory last Friday as it was Vinny's birthday. 2 already! And then we stayed and had a chinese takeaway with my son and DIL. We caught up with Ella on Monday and then on Tuesday I took Nathan to his tennis lesson so I had time with him. Tomorrow we are off to Nottingham for Miles' second birthday and a catch up with our eldest son and the rest of the family.
4) A walk around the lake today. It was quite sunny at the start but had begun to cloud over by the time I got home. It was just nice to be out in familiar surroundings.
The cygnets are almost fully grown. It will be interesting to see if the male parent tries to chase them off the way he did with last years brood.
Have a good weekend all.
