One of our main aims when making the move to Devon was to try and live outside more. Today was a chilly Sunday, but a sunny one none the less. We decided to brave it, wrap up the kids and go and investigate some of the fields that we can see from our garden.
It is a pretty steep hill up to Highweek and Little Miss had been up half the night so we cheated and drove part way, dumped the car, and then headed out into the fields.
The boys faffed about with some sticks, as they do, while Little Miss and I went exploring. We discovered that not only could we see our house but we could also see right down the coast to Teignmouth and Shaldon. Just beautiful.
She was on a mission and soon we had strayed somewhat further ahead than planned.
Finally, we decided to let the boys catch up.
Then, despite the sunshine, we realised that we are not yet properly kitted out for the countryside in winter and none of us could feel our feet anymore. It was time to head home, obviously stopping to climb the odd fallen tree on the way.
In the car on the way home we discussed our lack of country attire. I think Mr B could really work the country-gent style but he is still rather keen on more city-slick ways. Yet, when we got home, he did go out and chop some logs for the fire tonight.
Perhaps this country life is rubbing off more than he thinks.
Hope you all had a lovely Sunday.
