Day 1-Spreading the word.

Well day 1 is a wet, rather gloomy day. As such tried to do a few activities inside. It’s half term, so I’ve been off work with Alice. We managed a short walk out earlier before it became too wet and cold to be out with a newborn. On our walk she encountered her first dog. While from the pram and with limited eyesight at two weeks old she may not of seen it, but she certainly heard it. Like most babies she has been born with slight jaundice, so trying to get her out for periods of each day into daylight.

On returning home I worked setting up this blog page to record our exploits. After her feed she fell asleep while I caught up with Spring Watch. To help find ideas for our 30 days of wildness I’ve downloaded the app. The app told me to switch off the computer and relax outside. As it’s chucking it down and I’m holding Alice I think we’ll sit and watch the starlings on the bird feeder from the kitchen while I have a cuppa.

Now to spread the word on facebook, etc.

Finish today’s post with a poem by John Clare.

All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;
There’s nothing mortal in them; their decay
Is the green life of change; to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified.
Its birth was heaven, eternal it its stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their day and night and heaven wide.
