Sure you can't beat this beautiful weather with a big stick - and I for one absolutely refuse to subscribe to the pessimistic 'this is our summer so you may enjoy it while it lasts' viewpoint. In general though, theres no doubt that most people are in a better mood, we're smiling a little more easily, and i dont know about you but a glass of wine on a school night never looked this tempting in January!
Best of all, The kids have all but abandoned playing in cardboard boxes indoors and have rediscovered the garden. This is when country living comes into its own- I've barely seen them except at meal times for days and the reason for this I soon discovered was that they have been shooting their own mini movie! Using Cormac's basic camera he got for Christmas, they filmed each other over a few days, and then got stuck into post production using video editing software, adding music and special effects. Working together, there was minimal bickering - although admittedly Rory was initially edited out for going AWOL on the project, and Luke possibly didn't understand the 'movie making' concept, but still! Anyway, here it is...and is that a proud mummy moment I feel coming on....?
