Perfect weather for ducks

The past couple of weeks have been such a joy having Robert at home more often. I mean just to give you some idea of how much more time we've had together as a family, he arrived home one day last week at 5.20pm and apologised for being late because he stopped to pick up a few things for the next day.

More than anything, it's meant that we have more time for days out together whereas before he was simply too exhausted to even think about doing much at the weekend.

Notice how far back from the pond (and the chance of encountering geese) I'm standing.

Not that it mattered as these two geese followed us the entire way round the pond. They put me in mind of two gossipy old women with the rollers in their hair. You should have heard the two of them honking away at each other.

And chasing off any other birds you dared come near them!

And of course Chloe has transformed into a complete daddy's girl lately. She just can't be parted from Robert at the minute.

I hope you are all getting the chance for some family days out too.


  1. I'm glad it's working out so well for all of you. As it should, but sometimes there's a "re-entry" period that's a little turbulent.

    What is the tall building in the background of your photos?

  2. I'm glad his work/life balance has tipped back in your favour.

  3. Great photo with Scrabo behind.

  4. Looks like you had a quacking day! - Sorry, someone had to go there :)


Your comments make me smile. I love that you stopped by.
