Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

It’s nice and sunny, a New Year and it’s finally decided to stop raining. We decided it would be a good idea to burn off some Christmas calories and do a “mile for autism”.

If you’re not familiar with this, please take a look at @clkh_’s blog and if you’d like to walk/run/jog a mile please let Charlotte know/leave a comment below.

Here’s our mile:

Seen off by one of the cats, who’s more like a guard dog than a cat.

Garden is a tad muddy, think I’ll give the gardener (moi) some time off until it dries out a bit.

This stream is normally very very shallow, last week it was over-flowing into the road. Never seen it so high.

Past the play area:

This was the start of our mile, we were going to walk all the way around the lake near us and feed the ducks.

Off we set, D happily going on ahead, she likes it when there’s no other people around.

Past the tree that thinks it’s a mushroom!

A quick pit-stop at the bench made from another tree and then more duck-feeding:

Water gauge and “hello ducks”!

More lake shots, we’re so lucky to have this close by:

Wonder if he caught anything?

Entering the woodland bit which means we’re nearly done.

D’s wheels needed a good wash, they were very muddy!

Nearly home..
