It’d been one of those days. Not necessarily a bad one, just a fast one! I’d visited a potential school for Boo in the morning, while she had fun with Nanny and Grandad, we enjoyed a visit from my sister-in-law, lunch, Little Man napped, and before I knew it, it was 3.30pm. Generally speaking, Little Man waking at this time means cuddles and playtime in his room until 4ish, when we come downstairs, snack, play and I start getting dinner ready. So basically, winding down the day. But, this day was special. Why? This day was dry!
I’d been desperate to get them outside all day, but with one thing after another, it hadn’t happened. So I whisked Little Man up after his nap, they snacked in the car and we went out. Another reason we don’t tend to go out at this time is that the Husband comes home just before 5, so we like to be home for him and then our evening can start. Well, if we’re out, let him come to us 🙂 I called him, arranged for him to come straight to the park instead of home and surprise the children.
He, of course, is as much of a kid as them..
It was lovely and impromptu. It also meant that as we were out later than normal, I had no time to cook any dinner, so on leaving the park, the Husband detoured and picked up fish and chips on the way home. Perfect!
