by the time we finally got there it was late, everyone was tired, the skies were grey, and the wind biting cold, and we spent the rest of the day putting logs on the fire, and drinking tea.
Sunday morning both children seemed brighter, and the skies definitely were, so we set off for a little explore, finding newborn lambs, (I love the way the mum with black legs has a white lamb, and the mum with white legs has a black lamb!)
J's old school,
a huge hill to climb and then run down at breakneck speed......... I couldn't watch........
we wandered along the river banks
and through the woods, where we found crocuses
nestled under the beech trees
all that fresh air was clearly too much for Miss K, as she is now in bed, whinging A LOT, she's a much worse patient than E, somehow I think it will take more than a bit of gentle monster designing to cheer her up, chocolate maybe!
