A few years ago a sunny day meant sitting in our London garden with a jug of Pimm’s. Or another cold beverage of choice. We’re huge tennis fans so when Wimbledon was on, we’d have a portable television outside, continually re-positioning it to minimise the glare. If it was really hot, we’d abandon the house for a local pub and sit in the beer garden.
Nowadays, when we’re blessed with sunshine and blue skies, you’ll find us chasing our toddler up and down our Surrey garden while she squeals with delight.
In-between that she’ll happily chat with her dollies in her playhouse, feeding you plastic garlic and asparagus if you’re invited in. Sometimes you might get a potato.
Her swing has been put to good use although POD has realised Daddy can push her ‘into the sky’ and Mummy is just a little bit rubbish.
The slide really is just a makeshift climbing frame. She’s happy to go down it on her bottom or belly but insists on scampering back up it again like a crab. Quite impressive for a two and a half year old.
It’s been so sunny these past few days, POD’s been able to play in her paddling pool. She was apprehensive at first, opting to transport water from the pool to her unused sandpit and vice versa. It wasn’t long before the toes were in, the face got a soaking and water was being was hurled everywhere.
Amazing how much fun you can have with two buckets and some water.
There’s no better sound than POD with the giggles, it’s infectious. She finds pouring water on Mummy hilarious – I’m sure it’s payback for continually taking photos of her!
