Spending half of my weekend in bed seemed to do the trick in making me feel more like a human being and less like a snotmonster, so by Sunday I was right as rain to go for a wander with one of the besties to the woods not far from where she lives. I've decided that in the summer I'm going to make the woods my new best friend because there's an outdoor gym called a 'trim trail' (take a look at the pictures on the website, you'll see me monkeying around...thanks for that one Charlie). My plan isn't to use it to get fit, more like to go with my friends so we can laugh at each other falling off the equipment.
Afterwards, we took the scenic route home along the canal and the wintery air made the water so still that the reflections were absolutely perfect. I do think this time of year makes for some beautiful, atmospheric photographs, it certainly beats this country's pathetic attempt at 'summer' when the skies are grey and rainy for months on end.
