Behold! I tell you a mystery @ 22:09

We shall not all sleep; but we shall all be changed.

And changed I was, from my jogger pants and t-shirt into my khaki linen shirt and my favourite jeans. Then forward to Hunningham I went with zoefruitcakefor a spot of lunch

At the lovely Red Lion in Hunningham. Therein I dined on finest scotch beef burger topped with cheddar and local bacon with home made chips...mmmmm nomnomnomnom

And then began the walk and I took some pictures:-

 

The first cache was in view of the pub we had just left.

I took this using full zoom on my camera phone so excuse the blurriness.

 

 

 

There was a lovely babbling river we were walking along. This made the air cool, fresh and spring like. The beginnings of fresh greenness erupting from the trees.

Swans, ducks and other water fauna also made the most of the beautifully warm day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With spring comes the inevitable spawning of life. From frogs and fish to men and polar bears. Most importantly to sustain man’s ever growing populace, he must feed himself. Indeed, the very food that man eats must reproduce and spawn. Spring brings not just greenery but also lambkins. Behold! The lambkins! Soon all these will be Sunday dinner. Nomnomnomnom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The variegated greenness that purveys the countryside when viewed from the air  makes England look like a patchwork duvet cover. One day, this field will be brown before going off to make flour (which perhaps will go to make the dumplings for lambkin stew)

 

 

 

No journey would be without the obligatory arty shot. This would make a bloody good desktop background don’t you think?

 

 

 

Or an advert.

For jam

And then once more, sheeps. Sheeps. Constantly bleating. Bleat bleat bleat.

The only way to shut them up is to kill them all, put them in a pot, with stock, some veg and some nice dumplings.

 

 

 

 

And finish the day off with an ice cream fit enough for a fat pig like me. Heart disease? I’ve already got it, so it shouldn’t make much difference.

Here you can see:

Waitrose Cornish Clotted Cream Ice cream, Tescos Toffee and caramel  faux Ben and Jerry’s, Tescos Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate ice cream faux Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food thing, raspberry sauce, nuts, flake and wafers.

Oh and a spoon.

Which I ate it with.

Nomnomnomnomnom

The trumpet shall sound!

I am sorry but where lamb is concerned, I am a traditionalist :)

I mis-read your comment about the spoon and thought you'd eaten the spoon as well. Did it taste good?

Pity that stainless steel isn't all that magnetic otherwise could do some interesting checks!!
