The last 2 or 3 weeks..

... we have had a lot of poorly sick people around here, both adults and children.  As always there are a lot of bugs about.  All three of our little boys have had the Chicken Pox and then chest infections and bad colds have been thrown into the mix.  I have succumbed to the chest infection bit too and am just getting over it.  I think we're all ready for some sunshine on a more permanent basis.  Fortunately we've all been the walking wounded so in the great scheme of things we haven't got too much to complain about. 

Anyway, today was a lovely day so I rang Victoria and she and the boys came round and we walked up to Caroline's house to "blow the cobwebs off". 

George and Muffin forged on ahead.

It’s quite hilly around these parts and Nicholas still being a bit under the weather was in the buggy.  You’ll notice he’s  well wrapped up, it was cold but sunny. Note Nicholas is wearing his sunglasses.   He just loves wearing glasses, usually mine though! 

Poor Victoria, she was well and truly cream-crackered by the time she got to Caroline’s house.


I think when I have my camera with me I must take my blinkers off. Today I spotted this Memorial on Shore Road, just down from The King Bill, I’ve walked past it several times over the years and never really noticed it.  I read the inscription today and saw that it was erected by mill workers in memory of colleagues killed in World Wars I & II.  The mills are long gone but the Memorial is still there, nice and clean and well looked after in its own little garden.  I was very moved by it.

Caroline’s house is at the top of a steep hill and this is the view from her garden.  She sees some wonderful sunsets.  I must run, well get in the car and drive, up there one of these days and take some pictures. I love me a nice sunset.  And with that I’ll say…




Just a little something from Judy said...

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I have spent time reading down through your blog and have really enjoyed my visit. I find it so fascinating to see and read about the lives of other friends that I meet in blogland. I will be back.

Doesn't the view from my house look fantastic? It looks like I live in the middle of nowhere (I wish I did, as long as I could still have broadband..)
