A Spring Afternoon Walk.
Apple Blossom. Hurrah! We are officially in Spring, and nature has decided it is too. Maybe not the weather, but you can't have everything! Last week, I went for a lovely walk.

A New Season Begins…
Over the past few days, as Septembers goes on, I have definitely noticed a change in the air. The nights are drawing in and are getting cooler (the cold air is starting to catch the back of my throat).

A letter from David Attenborough.

Having achieved something I would never in a million years thought possible, getting the chance to study a Postgraduate Certificate at Cambridge University. If you told that to the painfully timid 7 year [...]
