Shaun the Sheep Hunting

Last summer we hunted for Gromit around the city of Bristol, this year we have been looking for Shaun the Sheep.  Each one has been sponsored by a company and decorated by various artists.  They are all great.  The advantage this year is that they have broken it into several trails, so we have been doing one trail a week.   Sometimes they are easy to find, sometimes hard.  Yesterday we decided to do the ones that are near the waterfront in Bristol and do it the other way round from lots of others.

We rounded off our hunt with a lovely coffee (for me) and cake and juice for J at the Arnolfini cafe. it is so long since I have been there.  What a lovely cafe.  Need to look in the shop for longer but J does not really do shopping so once he goes back to school I think I shall visit again.

Summer Holidays

Summer holidays - a time to slow down and do things we don't normally have time to do.   We have been for lots of walks with the dog in the fields to throw his frisbee.  So far the weather has been a bit mixed with showers but also sunshine as well.

We still have several things to look forward to camping trips (this weekend) with family and holiday to North Wales.

Last night we had one very excited little boy when the combine harvester and the bailer were in the fields behind our house. Of course, we had to go out and watch them working.  And then this morning we got up to find that there was a tractor with a bale fork putting the bales onto a trailer to take to the barns where they store them until needed.   Oh the joys of having the countryside on our door step.
