Four day weekend, what a treat! All I could think of as I left work on Thursday was the exciting prospect of spending all that extra precious time with my family! And we’ve been so very busy and happy!
And my favourite site of all ... cloth nappies drying in the sunshine.
We gelled so well - all of us giggling, piggy backing, playing football and chasing. I know I fed off it and you know what made the biggest difference? Me being playful with Cliff as well as with the kids - which itself is something I am re-learning how to do right now.
Zander was keen to swim in the river as he’d seen adults doing so. Although I love the idea of us all swimming in rivers and lakes this mama said no as right now I think we are too young, but he did his best at getting as close to the edge of the bank as possible to freak me out … throwing sticks in and demanding their retrieval!
Monday we drove to Wimpole Hall Farm in the afternoon, where walking the long way through the trees and the estate from the car park to the farm seemed more fun for the children than the actual farm itself. I sometimes wonder why we pay to get in places when they are perfectly happy with a wood and some undergrowth!
Zander collected myriad sticks pretending they were guns – turning them on unsuspecting passers by! All the while dressed as a Transformer, Optimus Prime I believe. I tried to coax him out of the full length nylon cat suit before we left but he was having none of it. In the end I thought hell if he wants to be a transformer who am I to tell him he should wear shorts and a T shirt? Individuality.
