sunday morning early there was a Roe deer browsing on the railway embankment behind the house, I didn't dare move as I was just outside the back door and he was only about five yards from me :flower:

At the moment I can see three little glow-worms from the backdoor. I was really excited but the kids were unimpressed especially when I dragged them out of bed on Saturday night to look at them!

I wish I could show you the view I see everyday from my dining room window but the photo won't upload it says the file is too big and I can't work out how to make it smaller but I eat my breakfast looking out over my garden into the woods behind and I am thankful everyday that I live here in the middle of nowhere in rural norfolk........

Clare, do you have any photo editing software? Even the standard MS packages comes with some photo or picture editing software. There is usually an option to adjust size or adjust file size. You can change the photo size there. If you haven't, PM me and I'll send you my e-mail address and do it for you.

Today, I can see grey, grey and more grey. Either we have cloud sitting on our hill, fog rising up our hill or I’ve been breathing heavily and fogged the windows up. (Yes, that’s the effect Ish has on me.)

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

We are lucky, in the valley this time of year we sit below the fog, which is nice.

Oh by the way the view hasn't changed.
