Playing in the sunshine!

It's been so gorgeous here today and the first day of the year that we've been able to play outside. No-one at work or school, even the teenagers doing their GCSE's taking time off from revising and enjoying some sunshine.


It was even actually warm enough for the water pistols! A bit different from last year's Easter holiday snow drifts!


And an opportunity to be a bit sneaky!


And while we were outside we discovered someone we didn't see last year....
The boys have named him Mr Bush....

This bush has a face, you see it?

    1. It's why I wrote the post really - I didn't realise as I took it, I just wanted to capture the action because I knew his Dad would retaliate :D

    1. You'd hate it Eileen. They had dirt and grass and mud and worms - and they trampled water all through the house :D

  4. Looks like they had a fabulous time playing, would love a grassy lawn like that for my 2 to play in. That yellow wagon looks like a lot of fun too!!

    1. We are really lucky in that we have a big garden - but low fences, and people are always stopping and talking which is nice, but I've never been able to let the boys play outside alone yet :D
      The wagon is great when we're camping at shows!

    1. Thank you Sadaf - we've had absolutely NO snow this year at all, it's really unusual, the last few years we had weeks of it, and last Easter there was tons of snow. I'd love to visit Canada in the Winter - it's on our bucket list for when the kids grow up and move out :D

  9. We have also been loving the lovely spring weather - snow is something I have really been dreading since my return to Telford as when it snows, we end up snowed in! I've already been sunburnt twice in 2014!! X
