Monday mornings are not my favourite things. I imagine that most people would agree. Recently though, I’ve worked out a way to look forward to getting into the office. I don’t open my laptop at the weekend unless I really, really have to and there is a lady whose blog I follow who always posts over the weekend and whose posts I love. So my treat for getting up at 4.30am, contending with the road, train and tube and being in the office before anyone in their right mind should be, is to take a look at her blog as soon as I log on.
Often, she blogs about walks that she has been on with her family. I love the photographs and the fact that, based in New Zealand, she is experiencing the opposite to me in terms of the seasons. I should point out that I don’t know this lady other than via our blogs, and having mentioned her once before I’d like to assure everyone that I am not turning into some sort of stalker…I promise.
Anyway, this Sunday, I realised I had the opportunity to take photos to create a similar post to those ones I like so much. I had my first outing with Little Pea on my own (Sister 1 took the opportunity to use a free hour to…go to Tesco. There is no accounting for taste, but there you go.) We went to a local wildlife reserve which was once a gravel pit and is now ‘a Site of Special Scientific Interest’. So this was our walk in pictures and a few words:
And then I got into the office on Monday and happily, The Green Dragonfly had posted about her Sunday walk. Mine pales into insignificance next to it – take a look here – it’s beautiful. Little Pea, we all have to start somewhere, but I think we may have to get more adventurous! :o)
