The Joy of Childhood

You run, jump and laugh
And when the fun has been had,
Sleep takes you swiftly.

  1. Yes Pooky, its a lovely moment in the day to get back in the car after a fun outing and your children fall asleep within a kilometre of the car moving. Lovely photo. Hope it was a good day all round.

      oh it was a most wonderful day spent with our university friends which also meant I got to see my big (3 year old) god daughter who was a key source of fun for my girls 🙂

        As a Garden Judge, I would say that is a good way to occupy evenings!

        You’re a garden judge? That must be interesting. You’d be most disappointed with us. Our garden was award winning before we moved in. It is not now but having been quoted ten thousand pounds to tidy it up (for which read to remove EVERYTHING and turf it) we’re motivated to get on top of it ourselves. I’m quite enjoying it but it will take some time!

        You can do it! Two good rules. First, have a rough overall plan of how everything should blend in. Then, go for it, one small section at a time. Keep the minimum possible time for maintaining the bits you haven’t got to yet.

    I have so many pictures of my boys and Pee sleeping. Would you like to know something? When I see Peyton, who is 16 and Jordan, who is 19, sleeping they still look like the little boys they were when they were little. Seriously – they look like the boys they used to be;)
