The Year 2014 in Photos - Week 20

Big dose of can't be arsed this week - not so much with the taking of photos but just blogging. I'm sure it will pass - it usually does and in the meantime the 365 kicks my arse every week and ensures I at least blog something! It has been work and school this week including a school trip that I helped out on which was utterly exhausting - like herding cats - but a great opportunity for some photos. What with that and then the school Spring Fair yesterday time has been a little lacking so lets get on with the photos:

Alice, Thames sailing barge, Southsea
First up are some pictures from Little Miss's school trip to Southsea. The trip itself was mainly a walk around Southsea but there was a chance for a few photos.  

benches by the sea, seaside colours
Colourful seaside benches (with rain brewing over the Isle of Wight!)

Southsea to Isle of Wight hovercraft
We saw (and heard) the hovercraft several times and I think it was the highlight of the trip for the boys - shame we couldn't go on it!
sunshine on the Solent, from Southsea
Sunshine glinting off the sea 

pale purple Lady's Smock or cuckoo flowers
With the sunshine finally arriving we stopped at the playground one day after school, where I promptly abandoned the kids and went for a wander around the nearby fields to take a few photos (don't worry - they are quite old enough now to be left for 10 minutes!) There was loads of pretty wildflowers including the lovely Lady's Smock. 
wild rabbit hiding
There was also a lot of rabbits - tricky to capture but I managed it! 

Roe deer retreating
I even saw a deer which was even more tricky to capture but I managed it! 
pretty star like Greater Stitchwort flowers, Stellaria holostea
More pretty wildflowers - this one is Greater Stitchwort or Stellaria holostea, also known as Daddy's shirtbuttons and Star of Bethlehem.

pretty blue Speedwell flowers
There were clouds of pretty blue Speedwell's too.

School summer fait
And lastly some pictures of the school summer fair yesterday - a lovely sunny day and hopefully we made lots of money. I didn't take as many pics as I meant too though!

For some more doses of sunshine head on over to the Boy and Me:
