11th March 2017 – Pony riding


Izzy giggled for the entire time that we were pony riding, enjoying Cracker’s fast trot and making me run next to her. The Wild Daffodils, Primroses and Violets were flowering and the birds were singing.

Whilst we were out, B and E were walking to the allotment and stopped to watch a Heron catch a fish in the River Coly.

Total wild time – 1 hour 23 mins (Izzy), 20 mins (E)

6th March 2017 – Tree climbing


Whilst Izzy was at zumba, Grandma and I took E to the Labyrinth in Seaton. Whilst I was walking the winding path, I turned around to find E up a tree. He had climbed a little Holm Oak and was sitting happily in the branches. He is not so good at climbing down as climbing up though and as I got there to help him, he let go and I caught him.

Total wild time – about 30 mins (E), Izzy 0 mins

5th March 2017 – Aborted wild time

All our plans for wild time went out the window today due to the horrible weather. Izzy should have been pony riding, but there was a storm and she was still suffering with a cough, so we cancelled that. And we planned to take some things over to the allotment, but the wind was so strong, we decided that it was just too dangerous. The poor old dog didn’t even get a walk.

Total wild time – 0 mins

3rd March 2017 – Cancelled welly walk

Izzy’s class welly walk was cancelled due to bad weather, so the only wild time we got was walking to Grandmum and Grandad’s house to help them move in. The Coly was overflowing its banks and we paused to watch a Heron fishing in the swollen river. We also watched the birds at the bird feeders in my parent’s garden, including 2 Pheasants, before tucking into fish and chips for dinner.

Total wild time – 15 mins (Izzy), E 0 mins
