  • Nature Walk: The Lamb Stampede

    Nature Walk: The Lamb Stampede

      Did you know that lambs can stampede? Neither did I until I went for a nature walk the other day and found myself observing the kind of mad antics usually displayed by a group of over excited children. And before you ask, no I didn’t run away. There was a fence between them and…

  • A Mini May Summer

    A Mini May Summer

    Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got no problem with the sun.  It’s heat I have trouble with and here are five reasons why: I have no summer wardrobe. I have hayfever. I don’t have a swimming pool. I burn and don’t tan. Long hair and icecream don’t mix. Coping with a heatwave for the lilo-shy:…

  • Sense and the Scaredy Cat Reflex

    Sense and the Scaredy Cat Reflex

    I stood in a shop on Saturday debating the opposing merits of summer florals and body warmers.  On reflection I can’t believe how agonising the decision to buy something has become.  In the past I made purchases with wild abandon thinking ‘I deserve this.’  These days I still think I deserve it I just don’t…
