Keeping my eyes open…

I’m all over the place today – stressing about half a dozen daft things that really don’t deserve the attention. This is one of those days when you know the theory, but putting it into practise is harder to manage.

Still, I couldn’t help being struck by a few of the  amazing things I’ve seen in the last twenty-four hours in the life of Mrs Average.

Last night, from the school car park, I took this picture of the sunset.

There were other mums standing about gazing up at that sky – even the children were mesmerised.

This morning, during the walk in the woods, I spotted these…

Each little ball with a neat hole in the top. Had something worked its way in or out?

They were right beside these…


So delicate, they look like Fern Britton, flouncing her chiffon on Strictly Come Dancing.

And my favourite beech tree had a halo this morning. You’ll have to believe me, because it’s hard to get some of this with my phone camera, but there was a definite yellow circlet around the top branches as the sun broke through the trees – it was a moment of glory on an average sort of day – wonderful.
