I was sat talking to my husband John who is researching our family tree just how happy it would have made my mum to see a photograph of her grandmother . I have mum’s photograph in the lounge and often talk to her. I said “ you would have loved to see what John is bringing up in our family tree Mum” when a butterfly flew on to our patio door.
It sat there for ages even when I walked up close to take a photograph.❤️
After getting up this morning I decided enough was enough. It’s four and a half months ago tomorrow since I had my surgery and I’ve never felt better, the only problem is I now enjoy eating again and I’ve piled on sixteen pounds 😬
So after a hearty breakfast 🙄 ( I have to eat ) I set off to do a walk . We are very lucky where we live because nearby we have a river, a canal, a train station, the countryside and a small town with a large new Lidl supermarket. So basically we have everything on our doorstep.
I took some photographs with my phone to show you what is nearby.
The allotments, we live in the apartment block shown at the top right hand corner, I usually take my photographs from there!
I had to be quick and grab my iPad to take a photo of this heron who took a stroll up the brook today. It’s a bit blurry because my glasses are in the opticians for a week to ten days. I can use my painting glasses but I need my arms stretched out to capacity to focus on anything 😉
Everyone has moved their cars now from outside the apartment block because the river is now overflowing! I wonder if there will be any ducks 🦆 swimming on it tomorrow. Thank goodness we live on the second floor and we have plenty of biscuits and chocolate in the apartment 😉
