Saturday Snapshot Four

Saturday Snapshot 4That’s twice this week that the sun has stuck his hat on and rendered all Instagram filters utterly useless: not unlike Teletubby Land (without the TERRIFYING baby) or somewhere Bilbo and Frodo might hang their hats. Twice that I’ve been on my own wandering adventures trying to take pictures of early crocuses and daffs and snowdrops. Spoiler: there are none because every time I bent down to get a cheeky picture to stick on Instagram with a witty caption along the lines of ‘It’s ALLLLLLIIIIIIIVVVVVVEEEEEE!’ the spaniels took that as in invitation to wrestle me violently into the mud. They ruin all my friggin fun.

Still, sunshine and having to hot wash all of my earlthy posessions has been the best way to procrastinate myself through revision. It’s been a good week, Dr Google aside.

How’s yours been?

Saturday Snapshot Two
  • Beautiful! We had a very similar Tellytubby hill where I grew up.

  • I’m so glad your Teletubby hill comes without the creepy baby in the sky, urgh that giggle! Freaky much! I would much rather think of it as hobbits frolicking through the shire! The weather has been mental lately, I’ve got no chance of getting any unfiltered snaps, as soon as I step outside I’m whisked away Dorothy style in a blizzard of hail, snow, more hail, then just downright bone chilling wind. I’m going into hibernation!

    Lovely picture! Makes me miss the country walks I’m missing out on whilst I’m at uni in the city, haha. 🙂

  • That’s a cool photo! Definitely reminds me of the teletubbies lol that baby that appeared in the sky (I think! I can’t really remember) was always so freaky lol it’s been sunny, then cloudy, then pouring rain here in Florida. she can’t make up her mind!! hope you have a lovely week!

  • ah yes, cannot get down to ground level without being licked, that is very familiar! glad you have a cheery week, in between the brief health scare/time spent in the dog basket x

  • Nice view. I can’t really top that. My bananas were pretty ripe and tasty in my smoothie this morning thought.

  • Thanks Sorcha, it was the most gorgeous morning (until we got to the end of a three mile outward journey to find the pub shut!)

  • That baby was something else. Something dark and weird.
    I do not miss the Merseyside winters, I much prefer me a bit of hobbity frollicking!

  • A ripe banana smoothie is a pretty spiffing start to a day. Nothing worse than when they’re a bit under and all weird and gritty.

  • The week DEFINITELY improved!
