Well, if we thought we’d seen the end of the rain after a few sunny days, we were wrong! I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but the footpaths are now “sploshpaths” and you don’t go walking without your wellies on! The dogs love it, though …
although maybe not so much now the pool has got deeper and started to extend past its usual banks. The dog decided not to go in.
These photos were taken in Sankey Valley but it’s just the same on the other walks we go on.
At Culcheth Linear park, the water at the back used to be a grassed area behind the trees …
and the footpaths aren’t really footpaths any more …
The dog did choose to go into the ditch here that he likes, but it was deeper than he expected!
It’s a lovely walk when the sun shines and you’re not watching your step as you wade through water. I don’t know where it’s all come from, or perhaps more importantly, where it’s going. There’s so much water around at the moment that the water table is saturated and there’s nowhere for it to drain to.
This is me sending you a big “hello” smile! 🙂
You’ll notice that I’ve got my purple coat on and you may have realised that I have a bit of a thing about purple 💜 And I’ve got something else to show you that’s purple …
My notebook proof copies have arrived! Ooh, I can’t tell you how excited I am to hold them in my hands! I wrote the other day about creating a notebook to go with the Super Socks series and it’s always an amazing thing to go from an idea to having something physical to hold. We are very lucky to have the technology and the opportunity to do that these days – it wasn’t that long ago that anything to do with books was governed by publishing houses and I am very grateful that things that have changed.
These copies have been sent out to be road-tested to make sure that I’ve not forgotten anything, and I’m hoping to have the finished version available in the next few weeks – just in time to write up the notes of any Christmas sock knitting you might have done!
I’ll be telling more you about them so that you can see if it’s something you think you’d like to use – but for now, just a first preview of what they look like!
See you soon! xx
