Last Saturday we took a walk in Park Hall country park. Although it was a little late for blackberries, we optimistically brought along a basket to collect any lingering berries. We had a really lovely walk across fields and then through the woods, gathering blackberries, pine cones and other treasures as we went. The late afternoon sunshine cast a warm September glow over everything and it was so peaceful. We ended our lovely afternoon with tea, scones and biscuits before heading home to watch the Last Night of the Proms on the BBC with the Podlings.
As if the day couldn't get any better, we also learned over the evening that Mark's brother Ryan and his wife Carrie had become parents to a baby girl. Our precious niece Grace was born around 8.30pm, weighing a teeny 5lbs 3 oz. We were naturally all very excited and can't wait to meet her. A perfect end to a thoroughly lovely day!
I was born in 1977, so couldn't resist posing next to this bizarrely placed rock!
