We live in a flat. However we live right next door to a rather fabulous park. Big green spaces, able to BBQ, a wonderful cafe, a little river that runs through and the selling point for the eldest a play park. I'm thankful that we have some a wonderful space we are able to escape with the boys too.
We had a surprise visit from a lovely friend and her 3 beautiful children during the summer. Surprise as in she lives a fair few miles away (but we grew up together down here) We speak daily through various social media outlets but rarely get some in real life time together. Our two eldest are starting school this September. It is lovely watching them play and explore together. They remember each other and both big brothers are alwasy proud to show of their younger siblings. The park was empty this one morning and we sat at watched the big kids run from place to place, while we sat and drank coffee and cuddled are smallest babies. We chatted put the world to rights. She is mostly the voice of reason to me. A brilliant friend and I'm so glad we have reconnected again - after all these years.
