Tales from Sussex

Well first of all I would like to apologise for the lack of posts. It has been quite a hectic month, not only with work, but family illness, a funeral, a birth and I also had to have our little rat Leyland put to sleep. I've tried to keep up with every one's blogs and left comments,I just haven't managed to write any posts. I really do appreciate everyone who has joined my list of followers.
Well I do hope everyone had a lovely Easter? I must admit I worked most of it but still managed to bake an Easter cake and take in some chocolate. My hubby and I did spend a couple of hours Monday evening together and ended up at Chichester harbour and walking for 4 miles, it was such a lovely evening I didn't want it to end.

I spent yesterday afternoon with my daughter which was a real treat, as she is normally with her boyfriend or doing coursework. So we decided to take in some fresh air and went to Slindon woods which is about a five minute drive from us.
The one that got away. We were amazed how this lonely berry had survived.

I just love bluebells and the smell was amazing.
We then decided to travel onto Petworth and came across these wonderful beasts. The cows were in the field opposite to the bull and there was lots of flirting going on.

We then went onto Burton Mill Pond, which is located in a place called Fittleworth, great for bird watching.

We had a wonderful afternoon together, something I will treasure. My daughter and I are the very best of friends and these precious moments are becoming less frequent, as she makes her own journey in life.......

What beautiful bluebells!
Ours aren't quite out yet. How lovely to snatch some time to spend with your daughter. I have three children, but those rare occasions when I get just one of them all to myself are precious!

I've sure enjoyed scrolling through all the photos!! You live in a very beautiful part of the world...almost opposite of my world...but that's what makes the world turn!

One thing that was not different...cows and bulls...they are the same everywhere ;~)
