I Should Be Doing Housework (Five on Friday)

I should be doing housework...but I'm not. To be fair, I am doing the wash and there is a lot of it. It was such a beautiful morning though so I got out and went for a walk. Now I'm sitting enjoying the breeze coming in the windows while listening to a Radio Suffolk listen again episode from The Suffolk Show.

I went for an early walk this morning - a little before nine. That's early for me these days. For years I was up before the birds so it feels nice to be able to get up at a 'normal' time. I decided to go a little earlier as there are more people about now that the weather is nicer. Yesterday there were people fishing, others walking and they weren't always quiet! Noisy means all the animals hide.

I was so happy to see the baby birds again! They are growing quite big.

They are getting the hang of dunking under the water for those goodies!

I took a walk down to the small (really small) stream that has a little running water. We're going to some waterfalls on our trip up north and I wanted to practise different shutter speeds and see the different results. 

I rather like how it looks. Well, housework is calling now so I'd better get to it. I want to be able to tell hubby that I did something productive today and that I didn't walk around taking photos for a long time.

I'm joining this up with Tricky and Carly over at Family Attempting to Survive the Times. I wasn't going to join in but this post has five photos in it so I think it might count!


  1. It looks like you had a lovely walk. Thanks for stopping by :)


  2. Housework is such a drag...I've just pushed the hoover around, long overdue I might add. The geese (?) are cute.
    Btw that 99 in your sidebar looks good enough to you miss them?

    1. Yes! I always go back in summer to visit my Mum and I make sure to eat quite a few of them when I'm there. It's a pity they can't travel in suitcases lol though the flakes do really well.

  3. The weather looks lovely and the geese certainly look like they are enjoying a happy stroll. Have fun.

  4. Glad you had a nice walk! Those baby birds are getting big!

  5. Housework -- yuk! I would much rather be walking in a spot just like yours! Fun!

  6. What lovely photos! The goslings are gorgeous.
    Tell hubby that walking and taking photos IS productive!

  7. I like your different shutter speed experiments - see, that was quite productive, figuring that out :) Have a lovely weekend.
