The kids like to meet up with their paternal cousins whenever they can, they are all living in different parts of the country these days, so it was a lovely sunny day in July when they last met.
We had a nice walk around Slaley Forest near the cottage and enjoyed the wonderful views across Hexhamshire.
Later we stopped off to see Jonny who was busy leading bales of silage from the fields to the farmyard, one of his many 12 to 16 hour days at the time.
Helie of course insisted on trying out the passenger seat of the tractor….
Because I am an antisocial creature, the highlight of the day was seeing this lovely Comma Butterfly in the Forest!!
The early evening at the cottage was not without it’s joys either,
Overall, not a bad sort of day all……..
