But being a hardy Brit, I never let up on the daily walks and simply threw on the fleece top and sweat pants and headed out like Captain Oates leaving his tent when he turned and said "I'm off out for a ciggie and a jimmy riddle. Mine's the blue mug and Scotty, leave me a jaffa cake, will you."
Ahhh famous last words indeed !
After my walk, as the sun was shining and the sky was blue, I got the camcorder and went back out (I know, I know, how brave) to take some more shots around the park. Well I did warn you all. It was bizarre feeling so cold and walking past palm trees. I felt like I was in Cornwall in July.
Just two points to make.
There are a few seconds in the middle of the video where I'm on the move with the camera. As I've still not got the budget for a proper steadycam assembly, I had to make do with riding my push bike. The results are less than impressive and I apologise in advance for any sensory upset that may occur.
The second point is a question. The bird up on the tree top.......anyone know what it was ? I'm all out of ideas after albatross and robin and I'm sure it's neither of those. Feel free to offer suggestions.
So feed the cat to the dog, snuggle up in the comforter and enjoy. Remember to wait about a minute after clicking on the start arrow as it takes a while to get going. I know the feeling !!
