In the Woods

Good morning -

did you have a lovely 'little bit of this and a little bit of that' kind of weekend?

Just sitting here thinking, it's such a strange feeling - Monday morning.

Like so many other weekends the house has been full of different activities, friends, baking, dancing and singing, laughing, story telling, drinking and chatting, but come Monday morning, after the frenzied rush to get everyone out of the door I come home and sit for a minute or ten and just drink it all in - the quiet, peace and calm.

The house is still.

Tis a very strange feeling - Monday morning.

Anyhow, the woods. The beautiful, gorgeous, wildlife filled, smell of damp earth and leafy things - woods.

If you are a regular to my blog then you will know just how much I love the woods.

Walking in the woods, climbing in the woods, finding faeries and bears in the woods, sitting and day dreaming in the woods, drawing sketching and taking pictures of 'the' woods!!

So what perfect way to spend a perfect weekend mid morning then a little jaunt to the woods. Blean to be precise near Canterbury.

We've been visiting these woods since well, the eldest Boo was the littlest and only Boo.

They are easy and familiar and ever so child friendly and if we ever move away then I will miss these woods, but I'm sure I will find my fix somewhere else.

We didn't find any faeries or bears this time and all the blackberries were either sour or pretty much gone, but at this time of the year if you want to go looking for Boo's then I think you have a fairly good idea where you can find them.

Have a fabulous day and a wonderful week - I have a week of decorating lined up. I will share all soon.
