Ive found you some...........

sunshine!!!!!! We have had the most threatening skies, and lashings of rain all day, but as soon as I stepped out of the office and headed home - the sun came out!!! It was waiting for me!! So off we went for a walk, do come with me.
Look at the sunny reflection on the lake - can you see the bull rushes?

The overspill was pouring - no wonder!! The weatherman said last night, that the reason they predicted a better summer was because there has only ever been 2 instances in the past (since records begun obviously) that we have had 3 rainy summers on the trot. He said the good news was that we have never had 4!! So they will undoubtedly be moving the "Barbecue Summer" to 2010.
Anyway, the baby ducklings were enjoying a splash. They moved so quickly I couldn't get them all on!
Is it just me who wants to go where I shouldn't?
The corn fields have turned to gold - I'm always reminded of Stings "Fields of Gold" I love Mr Sting. He has definately got better with age.

And I found you all a heart shaped leaf - feel the love!

Must dash - tea's on. Morrocan Chicken and Rice. (Really just fried chicken thighs - as these were very economical - with onion, garlic, tinned tomatoes, cumin, corriander and chopped dried apricots.). I'm going to sit in the garden, with a nice glass of red and encourage the sun to stay out until the end of September!

Mmmm your dinner sounds gorgeous! We had some sun as well today after a rubbish and rainy morning. Made the most of it by going to the park and I horrified some of the other parents by going down a tube slide ha ha!

I know what you mean about decorating styles, when I read a homes magazine I see so many lovely styles I wish I could take on (always love the all white schemes - totally not like my house at all!) but these days I always end up going back to the cosy and floral stuff :)

Hi, thanks for popping by the blog, we've had torrential rain here today in MK and thunder as well. very exciting! I'm envious of you going to Paris, always wanted to go, how about going on How to look good naked with Gok Wan!!A trip to Paris has to justify a few new clothing purchases. In line with the new film about Coco Chanel, how about a little Chanel number? Tres chic

I feel the love! And I've been warming my hands on that sunshine.

Lovely walk, as usual, Diane! All reservoirs and lakes seem rather full - I wonder why? ;)

Thanks for sending sunshine our way this morning - like you we decided to make the most of it and get out for a walk:)

What a lovely cheerful post, it's lovely to see sunshine-y pictures after so much rain and grey sky. And yes, I always want to go where I'm not supposed to as well:) Especially through doors in National Trust Properties marked Private. Those are the doors I really want to go through.
