These three are firm friends;Diamond and, er, two others. Diamond was whinnying for them and looking around when I first saw him:
He soon found one of them:
Then two were three:
Here two of them are, relaxing with a grown up:

The sky was stormy in the distance. My favourite kind of light for photography: sun in the foreground and dark skies in the background. The colours really were this vibrant.
The Kestrel has been around again:
That's my shadow in the early morning sun:
Half term is in full swing although OB is completely exhausted after his week in Brixham. He had a fantastic time and I'm SO grateful to his teacher for getting him through it. A child with Aspergers can be a challenge in new situations with big challenges. They wrote a postcard home on the first evening and OB wrote:
'I want to cry. I'm very homesick. I will try and cry before bed. I love you.'
As I reached for the car keys, I read the note his teacher had written on the edge of the card saying that this was a temporary blip and that he was fine. I reluctantly put the keys back. A brilliant example of the Aspergers mind: not thinking of the impact actions might have. I was SO pleased to have him home on Friday. He was very tearful as he was missing his friends that night. Much better now and he and his friend staying with us were so tired tonight they crawled up to bed at 7.30 and were both asleep ten minutes later! Right, I'd better light the fire or we will have no hot water tomorrow. So, until next time, have a great week and here are my very active canine boys.
