late summer break
I'm back .... after after an unscheduled blogging break, due to a flurry of late summer hols activity which saw mr digandweed and me visiting mr fudge in the west country and then weekending in London.
We joined mr fudge and his crew for a trip along the Gloucester and Sharpness canal to Gloucester docks where we discovered a number of beautiful tall ships ready for the filming of Tim Burton's new film Alice Through the Looking Glass. No sign though of Johnny Depp....
We visited the lovely city of Bath and...
.. glimpsed a beautiful sunset in the seaside town of Clevedon.
And had a great weekend in London.
And so the summer hols draw to a close and September is almost here.
Almost more than January, the month of September, seems to signal to me a new start.
It is forever associated with the beginning of the school year. A feeling which has stayed with me from school, through university and even when I was teaching.
This year that feeling of anticipation is greater than ever. For months now excitement has been growing chez fenland lottie, for we have some very exciting news.
In a very few weeks from now mr digandweed and I are to be grandparents for the first time!
Lovely daughter number 1 and her husband are expecting their first child in mid October and I cannot tell you how thrilled we are!
