Swanwick Lakes

Spent last Friday up at Swanick Lakes Nature Reserve.  Have done a lot of trips up there and the staff are lovely.  Nature is not my strong point so like to bow to experts sometimes

Won’t go down as a vintage home ed trip, no real reason apart from I was in a grumpy, unsociable mood, and had had enough by lunch time.  Was a lovely Autumn day, we were out of doors, I got to see Fin (which local friends will know is a good thing as he is just soooo lovely), had friends along…but I had pmt and was in an irritable frame of mind.

Sam didn’t notice and enjoyed the day though.

Do think if these are the bad days than things aren’t too bad.
