A birthday picnic in the bluebells woods was arranged with a few friends. The weather was fine and the cuckoo called with the blackcap, as we were ingulfed in the heady scent of the bluebells; later this mingled with the wild garlic, by the tumbling stream. A light starter was snacked on a pathway edged with yellow flags about to flower. Sheep and goats cheese and tiny red tomatoes.
Later after walking along the stream we sat amongst the bluebells to eat the main meal - followed by individual raspberry trifles, then of course a nap.
We strolled back through the woods, resting briefly in an oak grove.
Later tea was taken, with cake back at the house.

Last weekend I returned to the area where I was created and spent the first nine years of my life with My Friend and her family - including dog, cat and rabbit - the cat and I often shared day time dozing places.
We drove within a few hundred yards of our old home, saw the bus stop where weekends away with the grandparents started from, and also visited the place where one set of grandparents had once resided: to say a farewell before it disapears. It seems to be slowly losing it's shine and in need of a little repair, not unlike myself - constant attention needed to keep in one peice!

My Friend and I walked in the bluebell woods and had a nap.
Later we visited a beech tree in whose roots we had often played at house - it looked to have need of quite some clearing up, but we decided to leave things be.
I was also introduced to Isobel who is 3 and has a faithful companion: Pink Bear. We had a morning chat in the play room.
It is undecided yet as to whether I shall travel to Brittany or remain at home on Thursday. But tomorrow is birthday lunch so I hope to find myself in a bluebell wood nearer to home.
