The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 7 and some Country Kids

Honestly - very few photos taken this week. The world's costliest smallest room is progressing slowly but surely, meanwhile we are squished and squashed even more in our wee house and it has rained and rained and rained. Thankfully we are not being flooded (although we do have a small roof issue) so we cannot really complain and my thoughts go out to those that are.

However most of the photos were taken when I dragged the girls out on the Ranges on Sunday. The sun was spotted in the sky and they were going out no matter what and we did feel so much better for it. I have said before how much I love going over there - it has a stark beauty and great light for photos (check out tomorrow's Sunday photo too).

Oh and Rollercoaster Dad and I went to a concert - you might even call it a gig and had a night away but because of that I am having to write this early so the only pic you have is of the tickets! Oh and I guess I should wish you all Happy Valentines - it hasn't really figured in my week though.

'Look at me!'  -our favourite tree climbing tree

puddle jumping
Trying to jump together in a very small puddle

flooded army ranges
The water has flooded the main ranges but they are very beautiful.

The trees look like they are paddling too! 
Very deep puddle - almost over wellies
'Look Mum - the water's almost over my wellies!'

skimming stones in puddles
Other ways of making a splash in a puddle - throwing stones in it! 

textures of tree bark
Meanwhile I was looking at the fantastic textures that you get on trees.

More water for the birds
and looking out for the birds - who are quite enjoying the flooded ranges. 

Frank Turner Portsmouth Guildhall tickets
And lastly - the gig tickets!
