Almost faceplanted in the mud this morning ! Running in the field with the dog rather than usual pavements. Tripped over a stump. Instinctively put hand out to save myself and managed to grab the plastic newt fence to steady myself. Phew, that was close! Hot, wet and sweaty-faced is one thing but I don't fancy adding mud to the mix.
Sadly they're going to build a bypass through my ultra convenient dog walking field. I'm happy they're saving the newts, just wish they could save us some dog walking space too. Hey ho. Everything changes ... will make the most of it while we still can.
