Had a bit to do today, first me and tony had some practice on a new toy we got yesterday, a set of Powerisers! Atm we are just learning to walk, it's pretty difficult XD
When Tony had gone to work I went to visit my old friend Phil, she was recently had had a second baby, a little girl called Briseis (Br-sigh-iss). We had an interesting evening chatting and amusing Gabriel :]
( Today )
Me and Tony went on a trip out today =D It's been ages since I've been able to drag him out somewhere, so it was nice for a change Xp
I took him to the Mill me and Dad had visited earlier in the week, then onto Wolves to visit the giant garden centre, he put up with it all quite nicely :]
PS. I seem to have missed 3 days here in a row, seems unlikely but I just can't find the photos, how strange.
( Travels )
Me and Dad decided we would both go up the Wrekin today! Dad was pretty tired so I managed to keep up with him mostly XD It kills me to go up but the view is worth it.
We also went through the Needles eye, which people say you must do to call yourself a true Salopian XD It was a little awkward since there is a large rock jammed in it now, it fell there during a small earthquake in the '90s. Dad helped me clamber over it XD
( Me, Dad & the eye )
Today was dry again, shibby! I was out and about in the garden again, I planted a new Raspberry cane I bought myself since the last one turned out to just be a twig xp I also found the first strawberry of the season!
The pics of the gerbs were to cute not to put up too.
( Fruit & gerbs )
Today was harsh, we got up early to drop me off at the airport ;/
I'll admit I cried quite a bit, even after leaving Mum & Jen. Like leaving Wanganui, seeing a family together at Auckland Airport, randomly, and then when I left NZ later in the day. It was a pretty shite day which even the beautiful sunrise and plane trips couldn't distract me from much.
( Today )
I was gonna be going out with Tony today but this and that happened where he got caught up so by 1pm I found myself in Arley by myself :] But like I said yesterday, I find ways to amuse myself so I had a snack by the river, then went to wander over the bridge and up to the station. I didn't have to wait too long for the first train, and after a bit of writing, photo taking and dossing another train came in, unfortunately backwards, luckily the first one had come forwards so at least I got some good photos.
I spent a good couple of hours there before heading back to the car (getting ice cream along the way! It was some lovely weather today x3 Plus the ice cream was Worcester Plum flavour- how unusual!)
( Arley )
I was in work most of today cause of mothers day, it was pretty quiet though and I missed out on most the sunny day, ah well. I got a few shots with the retro options on my phone, then when I got out at 6 I went for a drive about in the spring sunset :] Going through Bridgenorth and ending up in Ironbridge, it was a sweet drive but I didn't really get as far as I would've liked cause of the time I had left, still, got some alright pics x3
( Little Others )
Today I revisited the cherry gardens up the town park :] The weather was good and there were some more blossoms about this time so it was a little better, a lot more peaceful too as there were no chavs this time even though it's Saturday. :] Unfortunately I didn't have all the time to sit around! I didn't realise but they close the gardens at 5. Actually I really like some of the shots I got today even if it is just stereotypical sakura ;p
( 3 others from around the gardens )
I'm surprised i managed to get more than one photo today as I got my 3DS last night x3 But after I dropped off Tony at work I went out to Lidl and got some seeds (we'll see if they grow for only 29p a pack), then visited Priorslee lake and dossed for a little while before trying to fall in the lake to look at a frog...
After some more dossing in the car playing with my new pup on my ds I went home and back into the garden and did some digging and planting of seeds, I have even put some in the greenhouse to see if they do any good :]
( Few others )
Alright, today I decided to actually /do something/. I dropped Tony off at work, faffed about getting petrol a bit then made my way over to Cound, a tiny village near Shrewsbury. The country lanes there are dead scary in a car you're not sure the width of :x I'm glad no one was behind me as I edged the sharp corners at about 2 miles an hour x.X
I didn't do a lot in Cound, the beauty of it is in the snowdrops that come up in thousands this time of year, so I just relaxed, took photos and went for a dawdle. I even messed about posing a couple of the pullips I took while there weren't any other walkers about XD
Oh yeah, the last picture is faint, but it's of a bat! It was hunting in a clearing when it was so light out! I don't know quite what was going on with that.
( One of the most picturesque places I know )
Today I went to Wolves with Dad Aunty betty. We walked through the park and up into town, (checking in at this packed out book shop with hardly any organisation xp) first visiting a collectors shop called Shawns to collect something Dad wanted, and in there were some on card pony things! =D I got some clothes and then we went up town, checking out the manga shop and finding another collectors shop which Dad found some beermats...you can see the grin on his face as he looks through them here XD After a galnce around at a couple of other places we went back via Shawns and I got another Pony thing- a MIB Stable XD Suckered....
( No ponies but other sights )
