We enjoyed a little outing on the bikes today, trying not to feel guilty about all the work we were meant to be doing at home, and took advantage of the fact that it wasn’t raining and there were actually some patches, albeit small patches, of blue sky.
With a packed lunch, extra warm layers on, and a small dolly, we headed to a playground and then a corner shop so that Tilly could buy some chocolate buttons, her prerequisites for getting out of the house on this chilly morning! We went to a lovely big park to have our picnic, and then Tilly and I visited the lake and she climbed trees, collected sticks, picked dandelions and generally had fun, while Brad chatted about kite surfing with a French engineer.
It was a bit of a slog up the golf course hill and a dash home to just about avoid the rain.
It was lovely to be out on the bikes – we haven’t had the time to do any rides recently, and it really felt like the right way to spend a day. We can’t wait to spend everyday like that.
