…this morning, the weather was beautiful and I had a couple of hours to spare before I took charge of Nicholas at lunchtime. So I decided to go to the lake for an hour and read my book. I got a takeaway latte from the refreshments booth, found me a picnic bench and soaked up the sun.
At lunchtime when Nicholas came round we took a picnic lunch to the canal.He was very interested when a group of local school children took to the water for a kayak lesson. One of these poor little boys overturned his kayak and ended up in the water, he came up gasping for air and I’m sure he must have had at least one mouthful of that horrible, not too clean, canal water. He was rescued quickly and calmly though and managed to smile about it when he was back on the towpath.
Our day didn’t finish there, afterward we went to Caroline’s where she had set up Charlie’s paddling pool and sandpit. The boys played happily while we chatted.
Just an ordinary day but so much more fun because the sun shone.
