A romp in the countryside

Friday 16 March 2012






Woohooo....Thank God it's Friday which means the weekend is just round the corner! I thought since it was such a positive response the last time I featured my life in a little English town, you wouldn't mind seeing more of it. These photos were taken last Saturday when I took the girls out (Lil L and her cousin) for a walk down a country lane to locate a herd of cows at a nearby pasture. The town was bustling. In fact, it was positively heaving by afternoon as we escaped the weekend market and jostling crowds.

Nothing is sweeter than the sound of children's joyous laughter. It's the simplest things in life that make them happy. Not the expensive toys nor exotic holidays but a splash of attention, unconditional love, an adventure in the countryside, a romp in the massive playground and an ice cream cone each. As they raced down the graveled footpath, they squealed at the sight of a swan gliding down the stream, marveled at the daisies on the ground, hopped over fallen logs and chased butterflies. When asked how they've enjoyed the day, the girls declared "what an amazing day!"


  1. Great photos,have a lovely weekend.

  2. You are right, a lot of times it's those simple things that are the very best. Have a great weekend!!

  3. I'm in awe of your pictures! Many times I want to leave my big city world and live in a tiny, idyllic place like the one you always describe so beautifully. Add the fact that fun London is a short train trip away and it's just about perfect!
