Getting Outside This Summer

Getting Outside This Summer

This summer seems to have given us some of the most prolonged periods of good weather I can remember for years. Days and days of sunshine, high temperatures, warm and humid nights, and then the inevitable thunderstorms that break down and start the cycle over again. But I'm actually quite enjoying it. Not being confined to packed commuter trains or stuffy offices (sorry to those of you who are!) is bliss, and being able to get outside regularly, even just for a few minutes in the garden is wonderful.

A walk among the bluebells

A walk among the bluebells

Something a little bit different this week. I knew I wanted to share with you the walk I took in a woodland full of bluebells near where I live, but in a moment of inspiration the story wanted to be written as fiction, giving a new dimension to my words and a departure from my normal style. So this is a story based on real events - I hope you enjoy it.
