this is 'my' little stream i try to visit everyday~a perfect place where you can see no signs of mankind intruding
the blackthorn (sloe) just up from the stream is starting to put out new leaves and the smallest buds of flowers
what a day
i have been so up and down i am quite exhausted!
as usual we had our morning walk with cody, our usual route up the dead end lane to the field with 'my' stream and a huge marshy pond that cody loves to paddle around in.
such a peaceful and beautiful morning.
then it was home to get my books out for a day of study as i have an essay on jean rhys 'wide sargasso sea' and euripides 'medea' due in by friday~i was doing oh-so well until i heard the news, which set me on the path of my earlier posting.
so i calmed down and spent some time sitting out in 'pippin' wishing already (now i have thawed out!) i was away camping again.
so i have decided (not that i have told swampy yet!) that once my essay has been sent in and we have made our promised visit to my mum and sister in the new forest at the weekend we are going to pack up our new sleeping bags, some food, books and my wind-up radio and take off for a few days.
...i think i have upset swampy...i found that his club camp at 'halloween' clashes with the halloween ball and witches market again this year, so i had a minor tantrum about missing it again. i love going to these camps and love meeting our friends but i would oh so love to go on a trip just for us~and why is it events always seem to clash?!
