Our little bit of watery distraction – Thurs 12th Jan 2017 

By | January 12, 2017

In true J-fashion, I’m running a day behind with my #pictureaday2017, but that’s okay, I’m not going to pressurise myself (there’s more than enough of that atm).

So, our #11/365 picture is of our little bit of watery distraction on the way to and from school:


It’s all been very severely trimmed back by the powers-that-be, usually you can’t see the puddle/lake this clearly.  It probably takes us about three minutes to walk through and it’s a chance for D to relax a bit before we have to cross a busy road and get to her school.  

Her school is on the left of the picture, with a busy, busy primary school on the right.

Sometimes we see a fox, usually squirrels and occasionally a friendly cat.  There’s a birds nest in a tree as we enter the woods and D can’t wait to hear any little baby birds, it might be a while yet.

The puddle/lake is always a welcome sight, when it’s iced over, it becomes a challenge for D to see how far she can throw a stone and whether it cracks the ice, when it’s watery, it’s a case of seeing how big the “plop” will sound as the stone enters the water.

Sometimes there’s a duck or two and obviously any stone chucking is abandoned as we watch the duck(s) up-end themselves as they search for nibbles.

Our little walk through is something we both missed big-time whilst I was recuperating and it was lovely to get rhose moments back again this term.

We haven’t had the walk yet with snow everywhere, maybe tomorrow will bring some/plenty of mud!!

Looks like a lovely walk to and from school. I’ve got my fingers crossed for some snow but I think it is going to miss us ☹️ xx

It is lovely, we miss it whenever it’s too muddy to get through x

I am so clumsy, I would fall in! That would probably produce giggles x
