I think I know what McCartney was thinking when he wrote the lyrics to the Beatles’ song “Good Day sunshine”. Just reading the words, makes you feel good already: “Good day sunshine. Good day sunshine. Good day sunshine. Good day sunshine. I need to laugh, and when the sun is out. I’ve got something I can laugh about. I feel good, in a special way. I’m in love and it’s a sunny day.”
And he is so right, when the sun is out, the gloom is nowhere to be found either. As I’ve mentioned we’ve been having absolutely glorious weather and when you live in the UK you keep expecting it will be over soon and the rains will come again. And as of yesterday, the rain has come! But that’s life in the UK 😉 and the plants needs some watering, so it’s fine.
The glorious sunshine started during the Easter break, the sun came out in its full glory and since we had a close friend over, who also happens to be little T’s godfather, we went on a lovely country walk. T also had a little friend over, so along with two little people, three adults and a four-legged over excitable dog, we all headed out for a little procession through the woods.
Over the hills we went, but had to go skirting around the hills, trying to avoid the cows with their calves.
We didn’t want to risk it, not with two children and the cows with their babies would definitely be nervous around an over-excitable dog like Doc.
After a bit of walk and hearing a few whinges from the little ones, we finally reached St. Peter’s Woods, which meant we weren’t far from Minster Church.
And then there it was – Minster Church, just like Forrabury, parts of the building was built during the Norman times.
I love the graveyard here, it always looks beautiful and different as the season changes as seen on this post.
Poor Doc, as usual, had to be left outside as we all went inside to have a look around and actually, a bit of a rest.
You might be wondering what little T is doing in this photo: She’s actually practicing her “hard-stare” made famous by Paddington Bear.
Kids will be kids. Clambering over stairs with no fear, in spite the adults cautioning them to slow-down. Then it was time to head home.
What about you?
Does the weather also affect your mood?
As I type this, grey clouds are hovering outside. But like I said, we actually welcome the rain, so it’s not so bad and I besides, I just checked, the sun will be out again tomorrow 🙂
