It was about time our family of 4 went out to blow the stink off us.
Marko suggested a trip out to Formby to refresh and revive our cabin fever. Ellie walked the whole way round the Squirrel enclosure (ie - quite far) because a wheelchair would never have managed it. It took us forever with frequent pit stops but she managed it. We are so proud of her. There were so many interesting things to look at and the dog was besides himself with smells that would only satisfy a dogs nose. They stick their noses everywhere, don't they? Ugh, Im not coming back as dog...no way, hosay.
This was us today totally enjoying what early autumn had to offer. Its my favourite time of year when the light is lower and warm colours make everything look like its been dipped in butter.
The poch on the way - always within a whiskers distance of one of us. He sits inEllies footwell in the car and snoozes.
Being met with beautiful light and eery trees was exciting.
Belle has now discovered bunny ears - we are no longer safe
I loved this fallen tree
And the light behind this leaf was fab.
Mark guiding our girl who insisted on carrying simba on her back. I mean, what can you do when your child (even if she is a teen) still has a love affair with soft toys?
Ths trees bark looked as rough as my skin felt.
Pine cones - million of them. I think she brought about 2,000 home.
Simba clearly got a rollercoaster of a ride on her back.
My fave pic of the day
Rest - and plenty of it.
I love the colour of this leaf - not surewhat Mark is trying to do to Ellie!
And we came back home and vegged.
Lovely day x
PS: Yest I bought a new iMac. Im so so excited about the speed of the damn thing which means my workflow speeds up which gives me more free time to do everything else. Ive used a Macbook Pro for two years now and this baby outweighs the brilliantness. Mark is majorly impressed with the keyboard (which looks like a wafer). I have to say, the Mac store at Liverpool One shopping mall is fabulous and the staff are second to none. The shop reeks of geeks, genius and people generally taking the ride out of free surf. I love Apple stores, even Ellie showed her mac geekness by mastering a few games whilst I browsed. The guy that served me even took my new baby straight to the car ....... which was a good 10 minute walk from the store. I mean - come on! Mac sure delivers!
Im a happy mac geek today.
PPS: Unsure whether to load Snow Leopard. Will I love it?
