What a difference blue skies can make to your week. I have felt in a completely difference mind frame this week on the days where the sun shone and the skies were blue.
I know it’s still chilly and we are nowhere near consistently nice weather, but the warm Spring days really have been such a game changer for us. The kids have gone and played in the garden after school meaning that the house is that little bit tidier and the TV and tablets go by the way side as they bounce happily on the trampoline.
I have been able to get out and sort out front garden out a bit. We had all the hedges taken out on the right-hand side of our drive, so I’ve been able to trim all the debris up and chuck it in the recycling.
The girls have definitely benefitted too as on Thursday I promised them a trip to the park. After dropping Charlie off at school, we headed to the park that is almost opposite the school and they absolutely loved it. They were in their element as it was completely empty and they were also able to go and have a nose at the skate park which is usually packed. My girls being my girls decided that sliding down on their bums was a hilarious game cue some incredibly filthy clothes!
They have asked to walk to nursery too and we have been walking back a few days too which is always good as it’s nice to mull over the school day with them. I really hope that we get more days like this as everyone just seems so much happier when there is a sniff of sunshine. I cannot wait for the summer to come albeit bittersweet as it will be our last one before school looms and my babies no longer are mine at home.
