The sun is trying to peep through this morning and the winds have died down. It is quite peaceful up here on the hill, with a few cars going down. My next door neighbour has just taken her son off to school. She is one of the few mums around here who walks the 10 minute journey, although I am sure with petrol prices going the way they are, many more will have to. When my son was in school we always walked and many times we were late as we stopped to look at things along the way. It gave him some breathing space at the beginning and end of his day and time for us to just 'be'. I love to see families walking with their children, we can learn so much as adults from our childrens questions and from the way they see the world too.
