ordinary summer

Ordinary England

Summer, summertime! 

Wow, we're into our fourth week of this summer heatwave! The ground is parched the night time air stifling. We've not had a drop of rain, since...Well, I can't actually remember. 

As it's summer, let's celebrate our ordinary middle period of the year with a return to our Ordinary England series, with a summer special.

one day in the wood

In My Wood


This is my wood! I say it's my wood when in fact it's just the wood that I grew up near, played in, walked and cycled in. So although it's technically not my wood, it is! In my head at least.

I love my wood, it's called Cowcroft and is in the heart of the Chilterns, on the edge of the village where I went through adolescence. I could see it from our garden, dark and imposing in winter. Colourful and inviting in summer. I'd walk our dogs in it, climb trees across the dells, hide in it, swing on ropes in it. Sit and chat with mates in it. I was lucky.
