Country kids - trees, sticks, and freezing cold toes

Saturday, 7 February 2015

We took Jellybean to the woods for the first time this week.


My lovely Father-in-law has lent me his amazing Canon DSLR for a little while, which is awesome as I haven't used a proper camera for ages.

I got to capture Jellybean's awed face as she stared up at the big trees (not putting that on here, sadly, because I'm still a bit iffy about putting up photos that show her face). I love seeing the world through here eyes - everything is fascinating to her, and it makes me appreciate everything a lot more.


She loved it. She admired leaves and sticks.



She chilled out on a tree stump.


She was fascinated by the tree stumps actually. She wanted to go back and look at this one again when we started walking away from it.


I admired her cute little shadow.


And photographed the beautiful trees.

There's something about bare trees that I really like. Bold, strong lines in the landscape. Love it.

Unfortunately we only stayed for about twenty minutes because our toes started going numb. Also unfortunately, I am having a bad attack of my trigeminal neuralgia at the moment, partly due to my (foolish) drop in medication, and partly because the cold sets it off. Bah. I hate being indoors all the time, and I feel a bit guilty that Jellybean has to stay in with me. Desperate for spring to arrive now so we can get out and explore more. And desperate for our holidays to come this year so we can explore new places with her.

Still ... I'm trying to enjoy the moment. I have to admit, it's quite nice looking at these pictures in my pyjamas, tucked up in my bed at half past ten in the morning ;)

  3. This looks like a great day out for you, it's great to watch your children explore places and wonder and such 'average' things. Jellybean looks so engrossed in everything around her on the walk, it does look like a beautiful place to visit. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

    1. Thanks for running Country Kids - I wouldn't think to document our trips out so carefully if it wasn't for that! It's really lovely to see her exploring the world. x
