This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...

Travelling - back from my sister-in-law's house in Cornwall after a week away for Christmas. We came home the same way we drove down there and took the A39 with a detour to Widemouth Bay near Bude.

Unpacking - all the bags of presents and stuff we seem to have collected from just one week away.

Looking - at the flooding on the Somerset Levels. We went up to our favourite viewpoint at Ebbor Gorge (just north of Wells) and from there, it's pretty obvious how much of Somerset is below sea level!

Watching - the backlog of TV programmes saved on our hard drive, some of which actually date back to Christmas 2012...
What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. Welcome home! Was there much flooding by your house? I saw a few photos from the area, after you'd left, and was a wee bit concerned.

    This weekend we spent Saturday waiting for postmen, played some board games, and then spent Sunday eating cake and taking photos at Lacock Abbey :)

    1. Thanks Angela! Thankfully there wasn't too much near us but coming back through the Somerset levels was pretty amazing - the amount of water around is incredible! :-) xx

  2. I've been hearing you've been having some crazy weather back in the UK (although we did have some horrid snow and ice showers in the last couple of weeks here). Actually a white Christmas too which is always fun! Our weekend went around bookshops, ebaying and watching Netflix! Lazy times!

    1. That sounds like a pretty good weekend to me! And a white Christmas as well - it sounds fab but I know it can't be that good - some of the reports on the news about the temperatures in America are almost unbelievable! :-) x
