A Lovely Little Adventure (& A Duck)10:02
Over the past week, England has experienced a rare phenomena. It began around Tuesday and lasted a good few days and I'm taking the guess that it will most likely disappear again for a while - as always. Although us English folk aren't completely unknowing of this experience, whenever it does come and say hello, we truly take advantage of it (well at least try to).
What is it you ask? Nice weather! Blue skies, sunshine and warmth. Yes, it's actually been somewhat warm and I have gone out of the house without a coat; that's coming from someone who has been wrapped up in a big winter coat until this week. However, I wouldn't exactly say my few items of clothing I recently picked up suit the warmer weather (oh how I love my jumpers).
Like I said, nice weather isn't really that rare for us but it sometimes feels like it with the amount of rainy grey days we get and after the first week of my Easter holidays, being day after day of those dreary days, it was so nice to get outside. I always find it so funny how as soon as we get some sun, everybody seems to be outside, instead of the streets looking like a ghost town, and everywhere you turn you see a man without a shirt on or that smell of a barbecue in the air.
My family and I decided to go for a lovely walk around a reservoir and have a picnic. Well I say picnic, but it wasn't the stereotypical checked blanket and wicker basket. It was more the case of a reusable shopper bag, slightly squished sandwiches thanks to my mammoth water bottle and having to stand up as my brother decided to take up practically all of the bench. Not very picture worthy, so instead lets look at a duck.
Also, I'm come to realise I frickin love trees! Whenever I'm surrounded by them, I feel so calm, relaxed and happy. I'm able to just let my mind wander and I don't get that 'alone' feeling I get when walking down a street. Come on, just look at how beautiful this tree is!
My dad told me of a wood, not so far away, were you can venture off the path - it is definitely in my plans to do!
The birds as well. I just love watching them hop along and then fly off. Have you ever just stopped and listened to bird calls? This is something I did only a few weeks ago and don't you think it's weird that they are having somewhat of a conversation?
How did you spend the days of glorious weather?
