We are off for the weekend to spend a couple of nights with my mother and step-father on a canal boat! There will, I hope, be lots of opportunity to take some wonderful photos -- hopefully of the English countryside at it's best. But, as with all things in this country, the weather may not be very kind. But I don't care -- it is a welcome break to do something that I have always wanted to do with my children. We have a long journey up to the north of Birmingham and have to be back on Sunday by 3pm but it will be worth it. Whilst we are there we will be celebrating my mother's birthday and my first-born's too ....he will be 16, yep...16...how can I have such a grown up child?
This I will ponder on and I will leave you with a photo of my ranuncula that is sitting on my mantlepiece.
Enjoy your weekend!
