Improving by degrees

We did get out of the house yesterday, it was only for a short walk along the river. The rest of the day was indoors-play!

Well the view from the window is markedly better than the previous two days; however, the wind seems to have dropped!

Getting ready for the school holidays

Windy and wet...what a change!

This time it's light rain most of the time with heavy showers passing through.
Definition of a shower: a period of rain that lasts less than an hour!

A slow start to Sunday, hurrah for the school holidays. Less need to rush around meeting deadlines: breakfast, washes, packed lunches, stories at bedtime, etc. At last a chnce to relax and take things as they come. Two lively children indoors a lot of the time is a recipe for a headache! Thankfully, full waterproofs and wellies are at the ready.

Will try and go puddle-jumping or something similar later today

I'm off to get their teeth brushed

Will keep you posted.

What fly is this?

What is it?
I pulled up the window-blind and this flew out!
Never seen one before, can anyone tell me. It flew with it's body dangling below the wings. As you can see it was about 2 inches long!

Indoor play this morning

Things that we do when the weather stops us getting out, like today!

Hopefully the weather will improve this afternoon and we will get out :-)

Another day in paradise

Well, this is what I've come to expect from a West Coast summer: that is, mild, windy and mizzling.

Mizzle (n): a persistent misty, drizzlethat gets you wet before you know it!

I hope the wind keeps up, then we won't have to worry about the midges :-)

Brand New Up & Running

Well I've tried this before, on the Yahoo site, but for several reasons it didn't work out. Mostly because I didn't post regularly enough!

Well this time I'm going to try and make my posts shorter and frequent.
