Here are the two original mills, now demolished so that new houses could be built.
We've had some beautiful moons over the past few nights. Have you ever tried to take a picture of the moon? It's impossibly hard to get a good shot. Here's the best out of dozens of photos.
Amy & Thomas are well into their first term back at school. For her English GCSE Amy is studying Of Mice & Men. The teacher has asked them all the buy the book. I found this study aid to go with the book and decided to buy that for her as well. It may help her get an 'insight' into the characters. Thankfully, she really likes the book so that's half the battle won.
Thomas had his first swimming lesson with school yesterday. They all started in the learner's pool to see how well they could swim, if at all. He was so proud of himself when he came out of school. He'd been promoted to the big pool with 6 others. He's doing rounding up and down at the moment in maths and can't quite grasp the 1,000's, so we'll be practising those tonight.
Wendy is fitting in nicely to our family. She's very good but like all puppies can be a little bit destructive.
And she also seems to have discovered a love of digging.
Talk about butter wouldn't melt!
Week 3 of the hanging basket. Another week and it will be moved to the front of the house. I think I'll try and thread a few stems of the leafy plant through the wires to cover more of the black liner.
