This weekend I had grand plans for us to get outdoors; firstly I wanted to go to some woods we used to walk our dogs in when I was younger. The are about a 20 minute drive from our house so we set off only to get there and find that the road was closed and we couldn’t get to them. Then I thought on the way back we could stop in my old village and walk on the linear path, this too was shut for maintenance work! By this time Lucas was getting ready for lunch so we just headed home very disappointed with our outdoor fun.
Luckily, earlier in the week we found a new playground tucked away near Grandma’s house and had a great hour playing on it. The equipment was good for Lucas, we had it all to ourselves and the sun came out. It was a lovely way to spend the morning, just us two.
