We walked up Cleeve hill this afternoon - and had a flask of tea (and some smartie cakes) on the bench which said: ‘Rest here, amidst this gorse-scented, lark-singing splendour’.

I found a heart shaped stone and dropped it off with Ellen & Chris on the way home. They got engaged on Cleeve Hill last week….CONGRATULATIONS!
