B&Q, barbecues and bluebells

Gotta love a bank holiday. The last one we had was spent visiting B&Q (Mr Bs favourite shop), having a barbecue and visiting the bluebells off the beaten track, round the back of The Wrekin. Local folk law would have you believe that The Wrekin is a hill made when a pile of soil fell … Continue reading

My summer in 8 ice creams

A photomarathon challenge part 1

So I set this photomarathon challenge. What was I thinking? Turns out it’s rock hard. I’m offering these pictures up as a Part One. It’s not the complete challenge, so no extra cake for me, but it’s a contribution never the less. A sense of the place you live I live in a village at … Continue reading
