Our week, like many people in the UK, has been dominated by the snow. I took lots of photos of Freya and her friends having fun playing outside while they were off school but this quick snap is my favourite (sorry if you’ve already seen it on Instagram).
We saw these gulls fighting over a scrap of food nearby and, as they took off and flew overhead, I quickly pointed my camera up and snapped a shot. I wasn’t sure if it would come out because it was snowing quite heavily (don’t worry, I had a plastic bag over my camera) but I think it looks rather pretty.
Anyway, I’m more than ready to see the back of the white stuff now (I don’t know how people who live in countries where it snows all the time do it). I hope you have all stayed safe and warm.
Please pop back tomorrow when the author S D Robertson takes part in my Behind The Book feature. He’s just published his third book and has advice about believing in yourself as well as some writing tips.
While we were out for a walk at Strumpshaw Fen, Mark spotted a kestrel hunting over a field. We stopped to watch and were amazed when it landed nearby – and even more so when it stayed long enough for me to take photos.
A volunteer in the information centre said it was a young one so maybe that’s why it was less cautious? Even with Freya’s non-stop chatter it stuck around for a bit.
Hope you’ve had a good week – especially if it’s been half term.

Also, please pop back tomorrow when I have another Behind The Book interview – this time with the amazing Elisabeth Gifford.
We actually checked the weather the night before we went for a walk at the RSPB’s Surlingham Church Marsh, near Norwich, and we knew we had to get out reasonably early to beat the rain.
It was cold but lovely and bright and we were hopeful of seeing some wildlife – until the clay pigeon shooting on the opposite bank started. Nothing seemed keen to come out with all the bangs going on.
Imagine our excitement when Mark spotted a toad in the middle of the path. I quickly snapped off a shot, thinking it would hop off as Freya excitedly thundered towards it but there it sat…because it was a rubber toy.
Ah well, it was still a lovely morning (and we were sitting drinking hot chocolate just as the rain started).
