Lovely day here. Really warm. Nice brunch with my daughter Nellie then we spent the rest of the day walking in Richmond Park. It was quite exciting but at times scarey with the deer.
They seemed to be everywhere, hundreds, we've never seen so many. All the big males were out making a din & being macho. Some of them had massive antlers and at one point when we had to pass through a narrow gap (seemed narrow) between 2 REALLY big ones we were saying quietly in unison "hold your head up, show no fear, hold your head up show no fear" & I was pursed lip breathing.
When one turned and barked right at us (or so it seemed). We ran hell for leather and laughed so much - more from fear or relief!
Most of the time we had to keep Fred on a tight lead. In my mind's eye i could see him tossed & impaled on those antlers.
Has anyone seen that YouTube clip of Fenton in Richmond Park? It's hilarious but it so could have been Fred & me followed by one of my kids bellowing MUM!.
2nd best part of today: no ventolin! perfect day, almost like old times. I do know I wouldn't have managed 4 hours walking (with the odd mad dash) a few months ago. PR has helped so much with the breathing. Happy day
