It's hard to believe that today is the children's first Monday of school since 2013! Christmas and the New Year seem like a dim and distant memory, so I thought I would post a couple of snaps from the holidays before I get back to my stitching.
If you look carefully at the following picture you can just make out a lake glinting behind the trees. We are lucky enough to live within walking distance of a nature reserve, ancient woodland, river, lakes and a stunning English Heritage site with breathtaking ruins.
The girls had each been given a 'crossbow' for Christmas and had a wonderful time ambushing their brothers.
If you go down to the woods today.............
Meeting these two might just give you that 'big surprise'!
