Playing around – April bank holiday weekend edition

with 3 comments

Well I should have done this a while ago, but anyway.

In the month of April came the Royal Wedding and we also had about 4 bank holidays in the space of two weeks. As a part time worker this meant that I was off work for a nice long time. I went to the country side and chilled out with some great people, some ponies and a lot of puppies. Unsurprisingly enough it was rather lovely.

Here is a collection of images from the period that I’ve put into a quick story:

    • Cheers Simon. I’d originally put them up as captionless images but felt that even though they were taken around the same period they didn’t really work together. Nice to know it made some sense to someone else!
