I've searched all the parks in all the cities and found no statues of committees.
Gilbert K. Chesterton


Yesterday, we made the most of the beautiful weather and went to Wimpole Hall Park". It's almost lambing time and Ron behaved impecably as we walked through fields full of rare breed sheep. He was in full terrier mode at full stretch on his lead.

MWNN enjoyed his sausage lunch so much that we bought sausages in the farm shop. The estate is looking gorgeous with drifts of snowdrops in bloom, daffodils ready to flower, and what looked like fratilleries dotted beneath ancient trees. We debated about the species of bird that was descending a tree head-first. It looked like a small woodpecker that was busily hacking the bark of the tree. According to the RSPB book, it was a nuthatch - very pretty.


A good day.

That does sound like a lovely day.

It was wonderful. And now we're back to the cold and the wet, so I am pleased that we 'seized the day'.

I love farm shop food. Not so much the idea of why it's all so fresh o_O

I made a fantabulous sausage casserole with them. They are 100% pork meat. Better not to think about the Gloucester Old Spot piglets we saw eh?

It sounds like a good day. Much better than mine by far.

Hope your fair weather is there to stay!

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good.


The weather is back to being cold and wet, and the roof repairers are here and have stripped the tiles.
