bank holidays

20140503_144017Readers must think we have done nothing but enjoy lovely days away with friends in the last few weeks.  After a few years where holidays have been few and far between, I don’t take these precious days for granted.  As I’ve already said, I think I am also getting better at understanding and planning for family holidays and so enjoying them more.  Last weekend we had three days in a converted barn just outside of Kendal, catching up with Cath (literally my oldest friend – I can remember playing with her before we went to school), her husband Phil and their beautiful one-year old, Sammy who we were meeting for the first time.20140505_115522

Ah, good friends: more precious than silver, worth more than gold.  20140505_140919The weekend was full of simple pleasures like an adventure playground (essential for our kids); coffee (essential for me); a boat trip; walks; milkshakes; and throwing stones into a river.20140505_114205

Oh, and a bit of street theatre which my kids found hilarious.  Haha. Family holidays (smile).20140503_113510

I started blogging after the birth of my first child. Since I stopped working, I realise I am defined far more by my relationships than by what I do. So, I am: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend.
