Looks like a good day to get down there on my bike.

What a sad (but necessary) sight to see with the dappled sunlight on the ground making the parkland look so inviting. It reminds me of the schoolyards of our childhoods....we hated school when we were there officially but there was something exciting about climbing over the wall into the playground in the evenings after tea when we shouldn't have been there! Let's hope all this will be over soon.

At least it's available for the those nearby to appreciate for dailly exercise. The birds seem to be making themselves heard more loudly these days! it's great to hear them chirruping.

Although I'm no animal rights activist or environmentalist of any sort, you have to admit, atleast its alot peaceful for the animals and wildlife that dwell here. Nothing must be more scary than herds of people here at the weekends and holidays. We have to remember, this is their home too :) There will be other days for us to come one day. Just has there always has been.

Locked down in day no paths to roam
But those that lie in dreams,
So by moon lit bright ,
You went last night across the tossing seas.

Where the havoc of the waves you watched
Upon your night sojourn,
Exploding on thy battened hatch
While rounding south Cape Horn.

And amid the foam and albatross
You roved the swelling pitch,
'Til you woke and tied your rolling hitch
To the capstan of the morn'.

Irene, your words remind me of last year when our local library went all modern. During the day by scanning your library card outside, the doors opento admit you when there are no staff present. You get that lovely childish feeling of being somewhere you really shouldnt be !

Despite the Stables complex being closed, The Plantation roads are now busier than ever!You need to keep your wits about you to keep 2 metres apart - and  move smartish to keep out of the way of speeding mountain bikes!
Yesterday there was one family of four, walking side-by-side, oblivious of the 2 metre rule.   Most walkers, however, do walk in single file when passing others.If you do go - take care!

It's not entirely surprising is it Axcroft , that we stand to be the worst affected country in Europe. For heaven's sake just stay home.
I seriously hope it hammers down for a month.

It feels like a jail sentence.
