Today's pic was shot on Sunday, and it's one of those spontaneous larking around moments, that I just seemed to capture. The boys think they are goats.... all it takes is a few words and they start buffing their heads together like Blacky and Whitey....
Slightly arty post processing of this image to give it a bit more edge.

Well what a day!
Gregory took the stabilisers challenge head on - and went from no stabilisers to riding up and down the road to tackling turning and even ....stunting off the pavement!
It has to be said he fell off when he tackled the last bit - but everythuing else was done with style. He's a champion rider in the making.....
Well done Greg!

Today we all went to London for a day out! We had a nice walk on Hyde Park before visiting the Natural History Museum. Here's Gregory and Miranda with a Brontosaurus for scale...
After a full day at the museum we even packed in a walk down the South Bank with dinner at Gabriels Wharf.... good job we had the day off on Monday to recover!

We've had lunch in the garden a few times this week - a sure sign that summer is nearly here! Miranda's been a little off colour, and there's been no time for snapping - hence the break in posts over the last week.
Hopefully, for the sake of our beauty sleep, we will be back to normal shortly.

Chatted to a woman earlier about the perception of Vegetarianism being unhealthy. She was amused that so many people failed to see the advantages, and was thrilled to meet Lewis and Gregory who were busy introducing her to the animals down at Barry's sanctuary. So this is Lewis doing his favourite pastime eating.

Tiger enjoying a post supper Smoothie. He's looking appropriately hippyish here!
Tonight we had a game of "Pop to the Shops" before bedtime, and it was raining so no bike riding was had. We had fancied going down to the shore to see the Cruise Liner being towed in, but apart from the rain, I dont think it came in until 9.30pm

He's getting very excited about something, but Lord if I can remember what it was all about! I think I'll start a series called the many moods of Greg .... Didn't take this picture today as I've been out all day - and frankly only saw Greg to say goodbye and goodnight.

I must try capturing some of the "agro and tension" moments for the blog because life certainly isn't all Pooh Bear fun and games.
For the moment though, let's dwell on the magical. Greg jabbering away to Lewis as they stroll through the forest - he seems desperate to be a big boy like Lewi!

I took this picture on Saturday, and it shows Greg in typical chainsaw frenzy - what we have done to deserve such a tree chopping individual I dont know. I suspect that this poor tree has been chopped at a few times in it's history, and seen off all the whippersnappers!
Just look at the trees here, they are beauties!
Updated on 7th May to record a note from Radio 4 Open Country this week which stated that an oak tree 10M in Diameter is over a 1000 years old - makes you wonder what this tree has seen go past - apparently the bulbous base is a sign of a heavily pollarded tree.
