Gratitude days 80-84

Having spent a few days away from home, I've got a bit behind with the gratitude days, so here is part 1 of a 2 part catch-up.

Day 80.  Al fresco lunch


Day 81.  Travelling by train on the hottest day of the year, when even the air conditioning can't cope with the heat, something a little extra is needed. A genuine Japanese fan, which was a gift from my DiL's mum.


Day 82.  My favourite Wetherspoons meal, jacket potato with five bean chilli


Day 83. We did a LOT of walking while away, but wherever we walked to it was lovely to have a free bus ride back to the digs. Why, oh why, do they insist we remove our glasses when having photos taken for official things, I'm not me without my glasses!


Day 84.  Mummy swan teaching her almost teenagers about personal freshness

Gratitude days 78 & 79

Day 78 I came across this moth while doing a bit of garden tidying. Well camouflaged except for the creamy coloured markings on the wings



Day 79


Gladiolus almost out (because of my mum's accent, or maybe her ignorance, I grew up thinking it was one gladiola and lots of gladiolas).
