Grassy memories

The council guys have been in our road cutting the grass today.Β  One had a sit on mower and was content to cut the pavement before he realised what the grinding noise was, and two had strimmers merrily strimming around trees and shrubs, cutting into the bark.
As I walked the dog this afternoon there were no sneezes, so definitely no hayfever!
Seeing the little piles of grass along the pavement edges as they didn’t clear up this time, it reminded me of years ago at school around 1963/64 when I was this young
and how on some sunny days we had our lessons outside on the grass.
At break, I would go round collecting the grass cuttings and make little birds nests everywhere in the hope that some little bird would come along and lay an egg in it just for me. It never happened of course, but I never gave up!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    You had me laughing at the council guys! And what a charming childhood memory of little grass birds’ nests. It’s a great school photo too. πŸ™‚

    I think you and I would have been friends – I loved animals (still do) and spent many a day making little houses for toads and squirrels using whatever materials were at hand – twigs and grass and caps from acorns…

    Such an adorable picture of you.

  5. Cutest picture ever.
    I hope the teachers use this virus excuse to take kids outside for lessons. Ever so much more pleasant – and more memories to load in.
    (We are sneezing with Saharan dust clouds here – not what you want to be doing – people are just so nervous about sneezes)
