Apologies To All In East Lancashire!

The freak hail storm this afternoon was all my fault! Bank holiday weekend, an extra day togehter, lets go for a walk and a run in the park;


It was a bit dull and a bit chilly, I made Nathaniel wear a hat to keep his small blonde head warm, it didn't seem so bad, the rest of us in warm cardigans;


Another small boy had his hat on in the sling, I even managed to take a picture of me and Simon with Sebastian, yes I have several chins and Seb does look a bit cross, I think this is due to his hat being pulled down too far (the cross look, not the chins, obviously);


Francesca was a brilliant big sister;


We found masses of wild garlic that smelled so good (think I'll be taking my little trowel in my pocket next time we go);



The children all 'conquered' a small bit of the wood and we had Elizabithia and Francescadom;


We found a butterfly;


And a woodpecker;


We took plenty of nuts but only saw one squirrel, there were just too many dogs about. The nuts may have been essential for our survival as we had to hide out under a bush while the hail fell, Elizabeth commented that we may be there for years (ever the optomist) and we would soon run out of things to eat!

The rain will have filled the river though so it's not all bad;


What did you do today?

We had hail here too - and then brilliant sunshine, most bizarre. I was glad I had my woolly hat in my pocket - though it just encourages me not to tidy out my handbag or pockets too frequently!
