Got up, not quite as early as I had hoped for the leisurely Good Friday breakfast involving hot cross buns (although I’ve enjoyed hot cross buns every breakfast this week!) and then headed out into the sun with the dogs for a walk up Chilly Hilly hill, out along Hampton Ridge and then down almost to the Latchmoor to complete the loop – gorgeous sun and really quite warm and I regretted bringing my big coat with me.

So I got home, changed into my shorts for the first time this year and headed out to the broadband-connected summerhouse (well it’s wireless you know) to get started on some writing and continue chapter three…

Thing is, it’s not actually that warm – pleasent enough in the sun but still a bit on the cool side. I have had to make a retreat and cloth myself in jeans and socks – but I will stay out here in the summerhouse!
