after an early morning spent packing up parcels , photographing new stock and a little toast and jam eating i decided to enjoy the November sunshine .........
we are spoilt here when it comes to choosing a dog walk
all the walks we have found so far we have given names
cliff top walk
Philip's castle walk
the list goes on......
but my walk of choice today was
the Christmas tree walk
a forest that offers a chance for the girls to be off their leads from the moment they leap out of the car to the moment they fall back in completely happy but exhausted
as far as the eye can see are hundreds of Christmas trees
from the very tiny
right up to the very big
and even one where you can put two fairies on top!
when we lived in Kent, every year i would drive poor Stephen loopy by having to have the right tree
he would stand for hours holding each tree up, driving from place to place, then having to squeeze the tree in to the car
once home he would then be subjected to my wails as it would hardly fit through the door of the cottage and had to be cut down to size......
ahhh - memories of Christmas past
this year we will be in our tiny rented cottage for Christmas so i guess we will have a tiny tree
next year however, we will be in our house with a vaulted ceiling
i plan on having a VERY tall tree x
on the way back from the walk i stopped to take a picture of the view i will have from my studio window...........
just so i could make myself go home and catch up on some work in order to pay for the studio with the great view
life treated me kindly today
