Meeting Up


An early start on the coach from Bath to Heathrow this morning in order to meet up with David as he arrived from the US.


Empty streets soon gave way to frosty fields and morning sunshine..


Unfortunately rather blurry pics..


This evening, having driven from Heathrow, we are staying with David's Mum & Dad and went out for dinner locally..


Good to meet up again for the first time in a few months.

The Good Life


At Andrew and Jan's today I visited their hens - currently living quite cosily in a greenhouse due to the risk of avian flu.   Initial attempts to photograph them suffered some photobombing from a particularly inquisitive bird.



Once there was some corn available it became a little easier and we were able to take these rather idyllic shots, featuring an antique cup and this morning's eggs as props!

Under Mum's spreading cherry tree the warm days have brought the snowdrops on and a few are coming into flower..

Mellow Yellow


These were tight buds on Saturday when I bought them - now fully out and simply beautiful..

Theo and Emma


Theo is very fond of his cats and if they are prepared to hang around is happy to demonstrate his affection - in this case for Emma..

Today Theo and I waved his Mummy and Daddy off to work and set about the serious business of playing.


And sleeping...


And of course a spot of lunch.


The plastic toy box was a versatile toy - boat, hat, house and table!

Happy days!

Emma, who is a spritely fourteen year old now, has lived with Lauren and James for these last three and a half years that we have been away and it is always good to see her again when we visit.
