I've had a bit of a grotty week at work. When you are under the weather, all you want is to be left alone and just get on with things quietly and in your own time. Well that doesn't happen too often in a busy school office! So after finishing work on Friday, the sun was shining and although it was cold, it was a really nice afternoon so I went for a walk. The sun really lifted my spirits. The weekend was just around the corner. There was no one else around, total solitude. I was walking along the footpath by the side of the lake and my phone rang. It was my son, saying his last exam had gone well, the questions he had hoped for had come up and he was relieved to have it all done and dusted. It was a lovely feeling to be standing in the sunshine with just the ducks for company, chatting to him and hearing his voice relaxed and happy.
This is the photo I took shortly afterwards and looking at it reminds me of how nice it was to be in a quiet, sunny place, hearing good news and chatting to my boy. It isn't a particularly special photo, but for personal reasons, when I look at it, it brings back that lovely warm feeling inside.
