I started to read the words out load, and she corrected me... "No let me read it Daddy.."
And in a gentle voice she read this beautiful poem...so I think you should read it too; ....slowly, ....... carefully and with expression.
I just love the "... I only got a small glance and gone. Oh the brownish reddy fox all gone, but still in my heart"

The wind was blowing rather briskly as we trudged on, our heads down.
Eventually we reached the activities centre.
Finally we sat down exhausted from the walk , we watched the cycling men listening to the instructions .
After we played falling planks where you push someone off the obstacle. We walked back to the car (yipeeee)??????.

It seemed logical to me that a page with a few words, and a choice picture would give her/them a daily insight into our lives; and indeed they do look at the blog from time to time.
Little did I realise that it would have many other uses, one being a personal reminder of what's important to me... like the one above.
Interesting website of the day - look at a photobook online

Nice sunshine in the Forest today, clear blue skies all round. At least there was until we were about 5 miles out, then the heavens opened for one final (surely it must be) deluge.
We hid under an old oak tree and dodged the worst of it, but the ground is so wet and saturated that any rain seems to leave the land 'orribly waterlogged.

You choose 12, 24 or 36 frames and then have to shoot all the frames before you can see your results processed, just like the olden days. It's a load of good fun, and even has an old 'battery operated' flash that makes the wind up noise. The pictures arrive complete with light flares and other crap
and like Greg, you can't help but love it/him/them
I am listening to Isfahan by Craig YaremkoTrio with Matt King and Jonathan Perez

I can't quite read the words but it's something about birds, and no doubt as soon as I show her this she will tell me the full story...
Link here for Lewis. I just pressed a button my mistake and it threw up a fascinating website. (It was the "Next Blog" button on the top of the page which randomly selects another Blogspot blog.
Lewis and Greg will find it very interesting, others may do too

We have been lucky enough to convince a neighbour to let Lewis work on the boat in their garage too, in exchange for some favours..., so things are starting to happen.
