Blogger Is Best

Over the last few months I've been wandering aimlessly around the miniature web through the eyes of Opera Mini, trying to find a half decent blogging platform that's mobile friendly.

Having neglected our existing blog here in the process, I've come to the conclusion that Blogger is just as good if not better for updating from a mobile than anything I've found and that my time would be better spent keeping this blog up to date rather than asking too much of the mobile internet that is still in it's infancy.

So to bring you bang up to date, we're both sat on the sofa rooting for Gin in Britain's Got Talent!

Holidays & Birthdays

We've been on holiday for the last week, we had a few days at Primrose Valley on the North Yorkshire coast. Our stay was cut short a little by a rather dodgy caravan but the weather was fantastic even if it was a bit nippy by night.

Robin Hoods Bay drew us back yet again for a lovely mornings stroll along the beach to Ravenscar and back. The next day we visited Bempton Cliffs, an RSPB reserve near Flamborough Head and were pleasantly surprised that Lucy was allowed to watch the sea birds from the cliff edge with us.

Saturday was Debbie's birthday and we had all the family round for a BBQ which we both thoroughly enjoyed even if we were run ragged until gone midnight.

Yesterday we did nothing at all, only straying from the sofa to make a brew or to watch the tables and chairs whizzing past the kitchen window in the wind.

It's just as windy today but the sun has been out and we've had a nice walk round Worsborough Country park. Now we're back on the sofa trying not to think about going back to work tomorrow.

Fields Of Gold

We went out for a walk a couple of weeks ago and on the way back crossed fields of golden oilseed rape. We've been wanting to get shots of these golden fields for years but never got the chance. Debbie took these while I played carry on - follow that bird.

We were out again last weekend looking for bluebells but they seem to be late this year, there's only small patches of blue at the moment, hopefully we'll be back when the woodland floor is at it's best.
