Photos from the river bank on a gloriously warm October morning. As it happened, I didn't need my thermal base layer, jumper, thick coat, scarf, tights and boots. A t-shirt would have been more the order of the day. The sky was full of birds, it was beautiful. And there were butterflies and fungi and all sorts of loveliness.
The dog didn't come to the river as it was bird surveying time and birdwatching is not his strong point. All that creeping along silently and not scaring things is not easy for him. It was just as well as the cows were there and he is terrified of them, while they think he is brilliant and want to get right up close and smell him. We have to pick him up and march past quickly if we come across them.
Otherwise, it has been a day of work and housework. I am in dire need of a nice day out. Maybe an afternoon wandering round Bath or strolling along the front at Clevedon and going to the stationery shop and the book shops. Not complaining though, all is good and I am happy to have the work and a house to do housework in. Some of it (washing the kitchen floor) was necessitated by the littlest boy choking slightly while drinking apple juice. He came into the living room to tell me that he had snorted it out of his nose. Sigh. He sort of cleared it up, but of course the floor was still sticky. There is absolutely never a quiet moment with boys is there?
