What a cow!

It's been a busy few days. We have been short-staffed at work all week and on Saturday morning the summer Reading Challenge started. I was working Saturday morning and it passed in a blur as eager children signed themselves up for a summer of reading and library visiting! I have also been going into schools to promote the chalenge and will continue to do this until the end of term.

Friday night Phil came home from work exhausted and depressed after a stressful week. We ended up going out with our cameras but there was nothing much to photograph. We walked through a field of very curious cows and I took this photo...quite different from photographing brides!!

Saturday night was Sian's birthday sleepover and today was spent recovering and getting Phil ready for his week in Lancashire. I'm going to miss him!

I am feeling a bit more positive and having a long chat with J tonight helps. She really does understand how I feel and knowing that is a comfort.

My work hours are all swapped around this week - very confusing!! Wednesday is the last RDA before the summer break and after this week is over it's not long until the schools break up. I don't work as many hours during the school holidays (I take back some of the time owed me) and I'm looking forward to a bit of a break.

Breaks are good and definitely needed. Just taking a walk with your "best friend" and your camera is therapy.
Heres a hug in case you need it.

What a pretty cow. Love her brownish color.

Glad you're feeling better, busy doing things you enjoy always helps.

It's good to hear you're feeling more positive honey. Don't work too hard. I love the photo of the cow btw. :)

Love the cow.

I hope Phil was able to recoup over the weekend. It's tough going back out without rejuvenating a bit. My hubby is getting acclimated to a new job which is stressful by itself.
