Indian Summer

A real Indian Summer takes grip and the weather has been glorious. Quite weird as it coincided with the arrival of my winter thermals! The scenery is amazing at the moment, and with golden leaves not far away it is a beautiful time of the year in the UK. Basking in a heatwave just adds to it :) The first shot was taken at 7:30 in the morning with the sun breaking through the fog at work in the beautiful countryside between Marlow and Henley.


I then spotted 2 pheasants sitting perfectly still on a roof close by so I decided to shoot them! Well took a shot with my camera :)


Once I was out and about about working I could not resist taking pictures as it was just such a glorious day. Stubbings Nursery outside Maidenhead was my first destination and is only a stone's throw from the church where mum and dad got married.


In deepest Buckinghamshire with not a cloud in the sky and the temperature rising I delivered some stuff on a farm estate and the farmhouse was look an absolute picture!


As I came back towards lunch for lunch I stopped to take a picture looking down onto the tiny village of Turville, which has featured as a location in many TV dramas including Midsomer Murders.


My final shot was of some lucky cows! Talking about having an easy life... There must be worst places a cow can chill out in the sunshine!


As the scorching temperatures continue I enjoy a break at work :)


Down by The Thames at Bourne End it was a stunning setting :)


Let's hope this weather hangs around for a while longer! :)

Freezing Eton

Sometimes my work has its benefits. I had a delivery in historic Eton today at a shop close to the bridge crossing over to Windsor. So I took the opportunity to go onto the bridge to take 2 shots of the September scene.



How that compared with my idiotic attempt to defrost the freezer at work later at lunchtime! It had so much ice I had to chip away at it, and of course I ended up puncturing the tray so now have no freezer working... Definitely an interesting day :)

Birthday Party

video

How the youngsters grow up so fast. My gorgeous niece has just turned 5 so I went to her birthday party where she had an amazing time. Little Anna gives the whole family hours of sheer joy and we just love her to pieces! 


As you can see Pooh Bear plays a big part in Anna's world and she was thrilled that Pooh flew in from America especially for her party.


There is nothing quite like watching a young child opening presents and cards :)
