I'm pretty lucky to live where I do and absolutely love it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'm a country bumpkin at heart.
We've been in a mild state of proper British weather confusion (come on, settle down and have some tea, who does not like discussing the Great British Weather.) It's been raining, hailing and we even saw the start of a tornado the other day (a lucky coincidence that we even saw it. The sun was shining at just the right point so we could. Incredible.)
And then some days, great big grey clouds along with bright blue skies and heat that makes you regret your sensible footwear choice of walking boots. Where are my flip flops, damn it?!
I literally wore all the seasonally inappropriate clothes. Weather, make a decision, please!
Last week has been all about the get better soon. I kept feeling "off" all week and it was the most frustrating thing. It never amounted to anything* asides from adding to my current pain and generally making me feel so run down I thought I'd never pick up again. It's also made me feel like a crazed hypercondriac. "I think it could be a cold." "Wait, this feels like hayfever!"
So over the weekend, eat all the soups. Stay outside for longer in the fresh air. Go to bed a little earlier, get off the computer/tablet/phone. It was like telling my ten year old self stuff that my parents would shout out (with much wisdom and love. And a lot of smugness, I should add.)
*This is a good thing. After being so ill at the end of last year, me not having a cold or whatever is a nice change. The frustration sucked. The feeling run down sucked, with no proper reason asides from "run down." I am of course absurdly lucky.
Despite the "mehness" of last week, I've really enjoyed the move over from Blogger to Square Space - once I got to grips with it (and stopped panicking about changing a template and thinking I'd lost everything I had worked on...) it's so much easier to use than I anticipated. Does anyone get that panic an hour after they've done something and think "Oh crap, what the actual have I done here?" I do. I did. I got over it.
So I'm excited to say the least, I said in the first post I'm essentially starting from scratch and that's completely fine, it feels like a brand new chapter. Another cliche. A fresh start. Oh god, let's add something about Spring and I'll have a hat-trick. Spring. Creation.
This was kind of incredible. There are so many foal and new lambs on the moors at the moment and we naturally give them a wide berth so we don't spook them. I was sat with the pooches, snapping away at this little one and the mama actually kept stopping and re-adjusting so her babe was on show. "Yes, I made this, beautiful right? Now get a good picture!"
So how was your week?
