I’m sure most parents have a favourite place to go
when the day seems endless to have fun with the children. The place where we seem to go once a week is a local park. I don’t know why – I didn’t even like it much pre children, but now it has everything on the park ‘wish list’ (which goes like this:

Now, this week we went. And it was one of those perfect days – the sun was shining, and – I can’t explain why but everything was just lovely.
