A few years ago we decided to move house; we moved back to our hometown, somewhere I never thought I’d end up living again. Lucas was 10 months old when we moved and it was the right decision for many reasons; we had the opportunity to buy our own house, my husband had a new job, we wanted to be nearer family and I was able to become a stay at home mum, something I had wished for since I went back to work when Lucas was six months.
Not long after we moved we went to the park which was at the back of our new house, we already knew the area pretty well as it wasn’t far from where my husband had grown up. It was July and the weather was lovely. There is a big hill there and we spent ages playing on there, Lucas was crawling and doing wobbly walks. I remember taking the photo while we were there. It is still one of my favourites and for me it marks the start of a big change in all our lives.
