Windsor is only a stones throw from my town, and I feel so lucky to have such a place of history and majesty so close. Not to mention the lovely shops and gorgeous places to eat. Jonathan and I popped there yesterday to do a little bit of shopping (with a pit-stop at Yo! Sushi for some Salmon and Avacado rolls) and it just reminded me how much I love my country - castles, monarchy and tradition - we are one special country, and I want to make the most of loving where I live. Mini resolution for 2014 I think. One thing that hasn't been so good for us however is the flooding. We're in one of the areas where the flooding has hit incredibly hard and it's been quite difficult for some people. The River Thames has burst its banks in a lot of places which means roads are closed, houses are flooded, and news came yesterday that in my town, a child had died and a whole road had been taken critically ill due to what the doctors think is something to do with the flooding water. It's truly awful. Jonathan however was very much enjoying driving through knee deep flood water along the roads. Boys will be boys. When we got home, it was time to take little Max out for a walk - at the moment, it's hard to walk him without being engulfed in flood water and the whole park is waterlogged - but this makes Max very happy. He runs through the water like crazy and has this tendency to put his nose in the water and blow bubbles. After drying off, we settled on the sofa with a Bulmers or two and a bag of Tyrrells to watch England v Scotland in the rugby.
What a lovely Saturday!
