We managed to get through the fireworks last night without too much trouble by turning up Jools Holland on the TV and feeding Jez peanut butter. Thankfully they had all stopped by 12.30am this year. Nevertheless, I wasn’t in too much of a hurry to get up this morning, especially given that it was wet and windy out.
When we did go out both dogs came with me to Upton Country Park. As if it wasn’t wet enough as it was Max spent as much time as possible in the water (seen here in the lake)…
… and Jez decided to join him in the stream.
But you can tell the weather wasn’t great as even the ducks had decided to hunker down.
And lastly, as we walked back to the car, a photo of the bare, tangled branches of the trees that grow alongside the stream.
I was going for the overall feel to the day with that shot.
And after that, I spent the day snuggled down on the sofa in front of the TV.
A year ago today
Oh look! We were at Upton Country Park where a couple of the sheep came over to say ‘Hello’ to us.
