I haven't had a very good day today. Worried for one of my daughters who is having a rough time of things emotionally right now. So I didn't feel like doing anything. WHAT a waste of a day. I went for a walk, and first of all got hailed on, and then it came on to rain steadily and I got soaked and turned around just past the junction as there wasn't much point in continuing.
I still didn't find Robin no. 1, so traced another and have had a play with how he is meant to look. I don't have any really sharp small scissors so his toes are very clumsy (he looks like a duck!) and I will trim the template up and give him skinnier ones. At least I have the twelve white squares cut out and the twelve robins.
After I had spoken to my daughter this afternoon, we were both slightly more cheerful and I made a batch of Raspberry Muffins, using raspberries from the garden. They are LUSH!
A few photos from the drier part of my walk.
A tree sweapt downstream and trapped on the rocks where the river narrows.
Detritis from the flood of a couple of weeks back. The tyre is about 5 feet or so above the current river level and the wood is on the top of the bank, over 3 feet above the level of the lane there.
Down by the mill.
Let's hope tomorrow is a positive day.
