I’ve now crossed the halfway point in my 365 Days of Happy photo challenge over on Instagram. Here’s how I got on in month 6!
I flew Wilhelm solo for the first time in months.
We had a lovely day on the Kennett and Avon Canal with our families to celebrate the wedding anniversaries of both of our parents.
A productive day’s work, rewarded with a glass of this delicious Bordeaux at the end.
We were delighted to spot these three hot air balloons on a beautiful evening at the airfield.
I went to Burford for a meeting with some lovely new clients. Lee came too and we had a nice wander around the village after my meeting.
I went to the theatre with my mum and grandparents to see The Merchant of Venice. I didn’t think much to the production or the set, but it was nice to get some culture.
Puppy cuddling! Plenty of gorgeous Retriever pups today – my favourite. They’re so soft and cuddly!
I love seeing Lee fly over when he’s teaching or doing trial lessons. Here he is flying over in Gwenn the Dimona.
We enjoyed a nice early evening flight in Wilhelm over to Broadway Tower.
A lovely sunny day for a change.
Day 165 part 1
The swallows who’ve taken up residence in our hangar have hatched their second brood of the year! They’re so sweet!
Day 165 part 2
I completed my first proper session of differences training in the Dimona, successfully completing take-off, prop change and landing. It was the perfect antidote to the corporate jargon I’d been up to my eyeballs in all day.
Rhubarb and custard cake and a cappuccino with some friends from Guide Dogs.
My first time using my new enamel mug.
I somehow found time to fit some baking into a busy day of puppy cuddling, working and dance lesson.
We went to Oxford and had a lovely evening celebrating my sister Helen’s birthday with the family. Seen here, Nel posing with one of my presents, the rooster kitchen timer that I knew I just had to get her!
I forgot to take a photo until the evening, so I snapped these beautiful tomatoes I was preparing.
A freezing, rainy day spent working at the airfield, huddled up by the gas fire.
Collecting eggs from the farm on our day off.
In the morning we went to Warwick to visit a friend who’s just out of hospital, and collected coffee and pastries on the way. I love Warwick – so many beautiful old buildings.
The waterlilies on the garden pond looked particularly beautiful covered in raindrops immediately after a heavy rain shower.
We went to the Winterwell Festival at Yarnton Manor with my sister and her boyfriend.
A lovely end to the working day with a flight over Warwick.
A very rainy, miserable day weather-wise, but I did manage to get some work done.
We flew to Sywell for a meeting with our wedding photographer.
Silbury Hill in Wiltshire, taken on my drive down to meet up with my mum.
Brooding skies over the airfield.
I fell in love with this absolutely gorgeous Golden Retriever pup called Poppy.
A productive but marginally boring day, made more exciting by a surprise chocolate delivery from my soon-to-be husband.
I passed my advanced driving test!!
We’re so British – as soon as the sun came out again we fired up the barbecue!
