Following on from yesterdays post, this is the finished crown – sort of as it has GB flags adorning the top too, but I had no chance to photograph that as the King wouldn’t stand still! Perhaps tomorrow morning before school. Barnaby thinks he has a real chance of winning the best made crown at […]
For school on Friday, Barnaby has to make a crown as everyone starts to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. However, he has not quite got around to starting it as he keeps playing football. Luckily, little brother made one yesterday at pre school, and another again today and so he kindly donated his ‘spare’ to […]
I wanted to get a pic of one of the boys blowing the dandelion seeds out, but they just didn’t get the hang of waiting for the camera or doing it in a sweet way – that’s boys for you! So the one remaining head was captured before being promptly pulled up and blown.
The fantastic weather continues and so time to get the shade sail out for a bit of protection whilst enjoying the glorious days. Even the kids are asking to eat outside! Summer must be round the corner!
Today we spent the day in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Ardington, where we explored the Ardington Millennium Sundial – thirteen pairs of standing stones – and discovered the nine planets of the Solar System, depicted by stone discs. Very apt, as Barnaby’s maths homework this week was learning about telling the time!
I finally got around to mounting some pictures I took for a friend with her baby boy; hope she likes the finished product!
Whilst looking at the garden and thinking how the grass needs to be mowed, I began to admire the daisy’s that are littered over the lawn. I think we will keep with the wild meadow look for now!
Another opportunity to go back to the river this evening to capture the sunset. Although it was not a great sunset as it was too misty, experimenting with different exposures and merging was fun.
I had an unexpected bit of free time today when my husband told me he could pick up our son from school; so I was able to enjoy the sunshine for an hour by the river before picking the others up.
FINALLY, we have nice weather, and it is set to continue all the rest of the week. I made the most of it by popping out for a walk by the river and spotted this heron. I was very far from it, but as soon as I moved, it flew off and so I am […]
