Act now and help us save England's ancient forests



Act now and help us save England's ancient forests

Please stop the lunacy of this Lib-Con coven giving away our natural heritage forever, after seconds of planning how to find the next most ludicrous short-term austerity measure that costs us more in the long-term.

Politicians think in 4 year timeframes. They work for us so tell them "No" this time!

Sunny days are here again



Saw the sun so we braved the cold wind and went to Winterton on Sea and had a pub lunch.

It was one of those days to treasure as our 2 children didn't seem to notice the occasional cold and were so happy and joyous on the sand by the sea.

Saw a seal that came right onto the beach until various dogs having their walks scared it off.

Then our son collected a pebble and declared that he'd found a "sea snail". A mixture of sea air, long overdue sunshine and a love of Octonauts on CBeebies must have kindled something in his imagination. We took the sea snail home, now called Squelch (my suggestion), and put it in a pot of water. He "fed" it a smaller stone for tea and drew this picture of its home and the event of being found. That way it won't get homesick. All this from a 6 year old.

Never mind recession and austerity. Happiness is right under our noses with these simple pleasures. Just learn from the little ones. They've got life sussed.
