Good Day Sunshine

I think I know what McCartney was thinking when he wrote the lyrics to the Beatles’ song “Good Day sunshine”.  Just reading the words, makes you feel good already:  “Good day sunshine.  Good day sunshine.  Good day sunshine.  Good day sunshine.  I need to laugh, and when the sun is out.  I’ve got something I can laugh about.  I feel good, in a special way.  I’m in love and it’s a sunny day.”

And he is so right, when the sun is out, the gloom is nowhere to be found either.  As I’ve mentioned we’ve been having absolutely glorious weather and when you live in the UK you keep expecting it will be over soon and the rains will come again.  And as of yesterday, the rain has come!  But that’s life in the UK 😉 and the plants needs some watering, so it’s fine.

The glorious sunshine started during the Easter break, the sun came out in its full glory and since we had a close friend over, who also happens to be little T’s godfather, we went on a lovely  country walk.  T also had a little friend over, so along with two little people, three adults and a four-legged over excitable dog, we all headed out for a little procession through the woods.

Over the hills we went, but had to go skirting around the hills, trying to avoid the cows with their calves.

We didn’t want to risk it, not with two children and the cows with their babies would definitely be nervous around an over-excitable dog like Doc.

After a bit of walk and hearing a few whinges from the little ones, we finally reached St. Peter’s Woods, which meant we weren’t far from Minster Church.

And then there it was – Minster Church, just like Forrabury, parts of the building was built during the Norman times.

I love the graveyard here, it always looks beautiful and different as the season changes as seen on this post.

Poor Doc, as usual, had to be left outside as we all went inside to have a look around and actually, a bit of a rest.

You might be wondering what little T is doing in this photo:  She’s actually practicing her “hard-stare” made famous by Paddington Bear.

Kids will be kids.  Clambering over stairs with no fear, in spite the adults cautioning them to slow-down.  Then it was time to head home.

What about you?

Does the weather also affect your mood?

As I type this, grey clouds are hovering outside.  But like I said, we actually welcome the rain, so it’s not so bad and I besides, I just checked, the sun will be out again tomorrow 🙂


  1. Oh what A lovely walk. I’m definitely with you, everything seems so much easier when the sun is shining and we really enjoyed these last few days of gorgeous weather!

    • I know! Next week’s forecast doesn’t look too good, but I feel it’s actually okay because we’ve had so much good weather lately 😉 x

  2. Coombe Mill

    Cornwall has been especially beautiful these last couple of weeks with spring in the air and the sun shining! It looks like you’ve been out making the most of it, it looks like you did a great walk perfect for tiring out little legs and four-legged friends. The photo of Little T and her friend holding hands as the climb the steps is so sweet. Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.

    • I know! It actually almost felt like it was summer, especially up in the headland. Nothing like that today 😉

  3. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    That is so cool! Since our country isn’t near as old as yours, places like that fascinate me! And, I think Little T has had a growth spurt, I swear she’s two inches taller!

    • I think so too! I bet she’ll be taller than me even before she turns 10! 😉

    • Definitely! Especially here in England, although winter isn’t as harsh like in other parts of the world (like your end ;), the greyness though is what really gets too me, day in and day out. Hope all is well!

    Thank you for sharing the beautiful walk and the amazing church! It is beautiful! Save these pictures for when you need a boost of Sunshine.
    I must say, my favorite picture was Doc outside of the church. His face says it all.

    • You’re most welcome 🙂 And thanks for appreciating them 🙂 Poor Doc always ends up outside though. I have a feeling though that’s where he really wants to be.

  5. It is lovely to get the sunshine isn’t it – makes everything seem better. Looks like you had a wonderful time on your walk and Minster Church looks like such a pretty place to explore. I love the final photo of the children helping each other up the steps 🙂

    The sunshine definitely improves my mood! I have been loving finally seeing some, with added warmth 🙂 Looks like you had a lovely walk, I love old churches and graveyards x
