The Gloom has gone! 
:)

The sun is out the sky is blue again and my mood is lifted!
Must make the most of it while I can.
I'm of to battle with the mound of leaves on the lawn ....

The Gloom! 
The weather outside today is dismal and dreary. The weather does affect my mood so much. I get up on a sunny morning and immediately swing into action. Whereas this morning I crawled out of bed and I'm doing everything possible, even writing this, to avoid housework or writing. I've scanned the 'news', ambled through the bongo fury forum, watched the magpies take breakfast on the bird table and even meandered through the TOGS website. Eventually though I will have to summons up some energy and get on with life in general! I suppose I should be grateful of the fact I have luxury of being able to do things when I want IF I want! I would hate to have to join the rat race again. I may not be as well off as when I was working but quality of life is much better! I would certainly recommend early retirement to anyone who can afford a reasonable life style. The trouble is I have an evergrowing list of things to do but I find myself doing the enjoyable ones first! So eventually I'm going to be left with a list of things I really don't want to do and no excuse for avoiding them.

Punting up The River Cam! 
We set off Thursday – travelling via Hatfield Forest for lunch. Although it was busy there was plenty of space for everyone and it was lovely to see children enjoying a good ‘old fashioned’ day out picnicking and playing in the woods. We then carried on to the Cambridge Caravan and camping club campsite booked in for two nights, had a cuppa and spent the afternoon visiting Anglesey Abbey. We enjoyed a walk in the sunshine beside the river! That evening certainly proved it was the calm before the storm we went back to the campsite cracked open a bottle of wine and sat watching the storm clouds gather, unfortunately we didn’t realize how much rain those clouds contained, we ended up with a moat round Minnie!



We have now also established that despite warnings Read More...

Travels with the Bongo 
The gap in proceedings is because we have been travelling in Minnie (AKA Ford Freda AKA Mazda Bongo). Mid July was spent ambling around Canterbury & Guildford, visiting nearby National Trust properties such as Ightham Moat, Scotney Castle, Sissinghurst & Dapdune Wharf. They are all very scenic but I think my favourite has to be Scotney Castle.





Then it was on to Read More...
