The ice on the watercourse next to our garden looks like it will hold us now. Time for Y’s first skating experiences later today.

I don’t walk down to our water side terrace enough. It really is nice in the morning light on a clear and crisp day like today.



Such a beautiful morning today, sunshine and some lingering fog with the sun’s rays coming through. This heron, Y and I encountered in the park around the corner from our home, while cycling to the shops. We stood there for a few minutes watching each other.
