Mmmm, gotta love the Coastal Park, good company, chattering, laughter and pretty much not seeing my boy for most of the day as he was far too busy having fun. Much to my surprise too, the park wasn't heaving - and today was a very sunny, very warm, blue skyed day.
Mindee was a bit of a handful. She is a little too friendly, going up to perfect strangers and indicating she wants to be picked up- a family takes her interest and she just follows them.. so there was quite a bit of chasing after and retrieving her. She also has no fear whatsoever, or any indication that she is aware of her own limitations... so there was a fair bit of extracting from the large climbing frames - oh and keeping her away from dogs. Phew!
No photos. I intended to take some, even got the camera out - but I was too busy, nattering, chasing my mindee and ocassionally saying, "I'll just go and check Rye is ok..."
And I'm very, very, very tempted to run away and join a commune. A mama on the GP forum has found a fabulous place in Herefordshire to rent as a commune. Trouble is, I have no idea what I could do to generate an income and pay whatever my portion of the rent would be - childminding I don't think would be possible because simply everyone would have to be CRB checked, then there's inspections etc... not practical.
Hmmm. Oh, it is so incredibly tempting though - live with likeminded folks, raise Rye in the countryside, I mean this place has a swimming pool, orchards etc - what a place to grow up!
Well, if it's meant to be, the Gods will somehow show me.
