Today was the first day to myself in 14 days! Now don’t get me wrong, I love my children dearly, but having spent the last 10 days in their company I was ready for a break!
So I set off with an appropriate ear worm rattling around my head (“The Sound of Silence”….the new disturbed cover, rather than the Simon and Garfunkle original!)
I decided to revisit Cissbury Ring in Worthing. This hill fort is an important historic site and now belongs to the National Trust. It is a beautiful area and there is always lots of wildlife to spot.
It was a glorious warm morning, as I walked up the hill. However, it was quite hazy and there were threatening rain clouds in the distance.
At I reached the very top of the hill, the clouds thickened and I began to think it might be time for a quick walk around the ring, and then head back.
The great British weather tried to get the better of me – but I think I won this one, as I started to drive out the the car park the first spots of rain fell on the windscreen. By the time I was home a full blown thunderstorm had arrived!
