So, the sun has come out to play! We can remove a few layers of clothes and abandon the thick socks - until next week, probably. We'll enjoy it while we can.
This is the view as I take my daily walk up to the dovecote and through the farmyard. It is like walking through a John Constable painting.
Meet Bill, he belongs to a friend in the village. He is a lovely old dog (about 11/12 years old) but his owner can't walk him at the moment due to health problems, so I have the pleasure of taking him out. It is like walking a feather on the lead compared to walking my big bruiser,
Dobson who is doing his best to look slim in this photograph. He is sporting his favourite neckerchief and wearing yogurt on his nose - he loves sneaking a lick out the empty yogurt pot!
And (I know, I know!) here is home, Parsonage Cottage, seen from a distance, across the barley field. I am stepping back from the world of blog, just for the summer.
Life is busy and time is short.
Instagram is something I have been exploring and I think the short and snappy format will probably be easier for me at the moment. I'll still be reading blogs, dropping the occasional comment. Back in the cooler months, when life has settled down a bit.
(For anyone who does do instagram: this link should take you to my IG page otherwise known as parsonage_cottage_kitchen)
Have a wonderful summer.
