Fabulous. Most of the mamas I'd only met at the last meet for the first time and there were new faces there for this one - yet it was like a big family reunion. Instantly comforting and familiar. Rye was also a lot more confident this time and I noticed him playing much more with the other children and even chatting to a few of the adults. I confess I know very little of what he got up to because he was too busy running off with other children having fun - as it should be :-) He was also very happy to get a go on the zip wire, curtsey of Ian. :-)
But anyway here are a few photos I snapped.
Jenna and Bays asked me to take this photo:
I didn't really take many photos this time, having too much fun :-)
The only blight to the weekend was the cancellation of trains - the journey back was incredibly long and I ran out of food and drink half way through the journey and didn't have the opportunity to get more until we reached Ashford, almost at the end of our journey. Poor Rye, kept telling me he was hungry and thirsty, asking for boobie etc. First time since we fully weaned, that I've really regretted it! Poor lad. I'm still suprised that a train that does such a long journey doesn't have a food cart or something on board! I'd hoped to get him a drink, at least, in Brighton; but our train was already in, so there was no oportunity.
Still, it was a bit of an adventure; and I did get to hold a 6 month old baby while her mum put up her pram - a mum who interestingly enough, does (did?) research into early years education. So we had a good natter.
We had a good time!
