There’s nothing I love more on a summer’s day than a long walk in the countryside with The Boy. I think I’m at my happiest when I’m standing in a middle of a green field, with blue sky and white clouds above and gentle rolling hills all around me. I simply can’t tell you how much I love the big, beautiful countryside skies; these pictures really don’t do them justice.
It’s often startling to me: a day that includes mud, hay-fever, tired limbs, and stinging nettles wouldn’t be high up on my list of happy things a few years ago. And yet now, when I come home all tired and muddy after a long walk I feel rejuvenated. It’s these days that fill my heart with joy!
