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!

  1. The flooding has been horrendous. I hadn't realised it had hit Windsor though. It looks like you had a good weekend though.

  5. Absolutely lovely posts. The pictures are so beautiful! Your dog is such a cutie.
    Windsor looks so pretty! I've never been before, but I definitely want to now

    We haven't really been affected by the floods where I live, but I definitely feel your pain. A few years ago, it was absolutely terrible and I basically couldn't leave the village I lived in because it was so bad everywhere ahah. Hopefully the rubbish weather will give over a bit now that spring's coming soon... I hope!

    Such a nice blog - will definitely be following! Have a lovely day : )
