Wallis Mill Pond - Little Known beauty spot

Sorry for the lack of blogging the last few days. The kids are on holiday among a few other things going on right now which means i find it hard to get motivated enough to put what i have done into words that people would want to read.

The other day we took two of our children over to Wallis mill pond and marker stone of which you can find out how to get there here Wallis Mill Pond It's a nice place, very quiet and peaceful. Last time we came here there were free roaming cows. This time we spotted a few goats near the actual mill itself. I quite like the idea of animals free to roam. We ended up coming home with a few tadpoles. When they have grown legs we will bring them back and "Free Willy" them. Yes that means we will release them back. The kids just like the fact we are bringing them up for a few weeks and at the moment enjoy looking at them. They seem quite happy in a big glass vase. When i was a child i remember collecting them in Jam jars and releasing them when they started hopping about.

On another note, our car got quite badly scratched the other day. So much so that someone would of known they had done it. It was done where we live and if i had to take a wild guess i would say it's children. It really annoys me that people don't seem to respect anything nowadays, especially someone elses property. I am going to purchase a CCTV camera because it will work out cheaper in the long run than the insurance excess. If anyone has tried and tested one and it's any good please let me know.
