pear tree log: I started this blog to keep my younger son, Jonny, in touch with life in Lincolnshire, while he spent a year working in China. That year turned into five! Now he is home and training to become a physics teacher. This is simply a patchwork quilt of some of the things I enjoy - life in rural Lincolnshire, our animals, friends, architecture, books, the gardens, and things of passing interest.

We took the scenic route home, which was just as well because I had spent far too long staring at this -
while your Pa purchased cement and other dull things.  The rain was falling quite heavily and I was bored, so I took a photo.  

It became something of a challenge to take some photos of the journey home, your Dad was convinced that nothing much would turn out as they were taken through the windscreen while the rain was falling.    You know me, I can't resist a challenge.  I still can't drive, because of my toe, so I take the chance to get out and about when I can - even to the builders merchants - how sad is that!!

Recognise this cottage?  It is next to the church in Rigsby.
This is the tiny church in Haugh...
...and this is the road leading home.

Things we do on a rainy day!

Actually it has been a lovely day, I have done some reading, sewing, and read lots of new-to-me -blogs, while your Pa has done some wood carving.  The dogs and cats have all been fed and watered and the two dogs are lolled out in front of the Rayburn - they'll be a bit upset when I shove them along so that I can cook tea.

Talking of rain - it has rained very heavily so the drainage system and the soakaways are being well tested, so far they seem to be coping pretty well. 

Fondest love,
