You may have been wondering why I haven't posted here for ages, well, there have been family things going on, which aren't quite sorted yet, but hopefully we're getting there!
We haven't been able to carry out many of the 2011 resolution walks, because daughter No 3 got a waitressing job and wasn't around on a Sunday any more. I have a feeling with another change of workplace that may change again! However, we have spent some time walking and exploring our local area.
Dad has been visiting us fairly often lately and although very sprightly for his age, he cannot manage the more strenuous walks that we choose to do when he is not with us.
So some more leasurely exercise....
There were flowers everywhere!
Billy enjoyed a very hot day at Glastonbury Abbey, such a poser!
So did Dad!
I always try to imagine how imposing the Abbey must have been with its giant arches and tower intact.
