One of the labels on this post today is 'thankfulness'. The past few days have been lovely and chilled. Even yesterday when Ella started winding up and I was trying to calm her whilst keeping her at arms length (regular viewers will understand *rolls eyes*) she never went over the top of no return. She did come close. But didn't and you can't imagine - or maybe you can - how wonderful that felt. And our daily DVD has had a break, so this week we're watching Harry Potter! Much as I love the Twilight series, it is bloody nice to watch something different!
So, Monday met up with Beth and Hilary and their children and we went to The Lookout. I often go up there, or Crowthorne Woods, or Caesars Camp. Just enjoy being outdoors :) But I tend to avoid school holidays - turns out that's a wise choice, it was swamped with Mums and children. Twenty minutes alone to find a parking space. But nevertheless, once parked a lovely couple of hours was spent in the woods :)
And then we went to get our God-daughter a birthday present. When she was baptised we decided to get her a troll bracelet with a cross on it. Each year since we have added a bead to it. Patrick and Angela are keeping it safe for when she's older - much older - and will, hopefully, appreciate it. Bummer if she thinks it's naff! LMAO!
