Wind in the Willows

A few weeks ago, the boy and I decided to pay our local reservoir a visit. It was a beautiful day, and to our delight, we discovered that a Wind in the Willows trail had been constructed.

I read the book aged 8, and absolutely loved Mr Toad.

I lost my copy long ago, and this trail encouraged me to buy another copy on ebay (£2.81). I bought a children's copy, and it has amazing illustrations. It definitely is a classic!

Long time no see (again!)

It feels like i've not posted for an age!

The only excuse i have is that i have been up to nothing remotely interesting (save for writing and uni work)

We took a walk around Sandford Lock last sunday before getting soaked in the rain (luckily we'd already scoffed our picnic)

And we got a lot of money back from E-on so i treated myself to a few bits (and books - not pictured)

We both have a week off work soon so we're hoping to have a few trips out! Fingers crossed, anyway.
