I love love love the sunshine, my family and where we have put our roots.
On a sunny day, Yorkshire is stunningly beautiful,
stunning views that seem to be filled with timeless beauty and for me ('cos I am a sentimental 'ole softy) great pride mixed with nostalgia.
At the back of our house is a community field, it's a great space for football, kite flying, blankets and drawing and impromptu picnics,
and it's a space on sunny days my kids love to go! and I'm sorry that the pictures don't, and never will, give it justice!
When the sunshine allows the kids seemed to be energised to do all kinds of activities including experimenting with exploding volcano kits... goggles on please ( or if you haven't any goggles a pair of cinema 3D glasses will do!)
This is our wild back garden which we need to tame!
The frogs have been busy in our 'wild' pond!
I think there's more jelly frog spawn than there is water!
and this is the view behind our garden and in front of the community field,
it's very special to me as over the past 10 years I've sat here with my children as babes, chatted with them and ate ham butties, put the world to rights, cried, felt incredibly lonely, felt incredibly happy, 'laffed' and even breast fed here!
It's my thinking place and I wish every one could share it, hear the birds and feel the breeze and feel the view and not just see it in this photo!
( man alive! that was a bit deep!!! for me,
I promise the next post will be light and fluffy!! I think it's my age mixed with hormones!!!
I just feel incredibly lucky! to have great friends, family and space:)
