A ghost? A monster?

No, it's Bobby, changing the duvet cover. It's his own method. Can't think why more people don't use it.

There's been much toing and froing this weekend - various kids have had parties to go to, sleep-overs to not sleep at, and friends to visit. So, busy, in a pleasant but not-very-interesting kind of way.

I didn't get nearly as much work done this half-term as I'd planned to. I feel a bit guilty about that, but on the other hand I really did need the break, and it's been wonderful to have this time to relax with the kids. I may pay for my relaxation this coming week, though... I made the mistake of checking my work email earlier this afternoon, and it made me really anxious. So many things to take care of - none of them unmanageable on their own, but taken together quite daunting. I'm not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow morning. Ugh.

Bobby and I went for a walk in the fields five minutes south of our house this afternoon, though, which helped with the anxiety.

These past two days it's felt like Spring is coming. There are so many more birds around, and it's been so much warmer. This afternoon we saw pheasants, and rabbits... And the snowdrops are out.

And this was the sunset when we walked home.

I really like living where we do.

the snowdrops are lovely.
Bobby changing the duvet cover, cracked me up! :D
It seems you two have so much fun together, there is a warmth communicated in your relationship.
SO HAPPY he is to stay there with you, hopefully if/when he has to go it will be a short stint.

What a lovely part of England, you are very lucky. I think those snow drops are wonderful.

I do my duvet cover kind of like Bobby does -- but lying down. Try it sometime! It's fun!
