56


Leila and I don't have enough weekday adventures. We cook, we draw, we do a lot of home based activities, but in comparison to how much Ella and I got out and about at the same age, we don't do much at all.

I've been reading this book which was gifted to me some months ago by a dear reader (thank you Helen), and I'm finally reading it thoroughly rather than just skimming. Not all of it applies to Leila, but a lot does and I need to take on board a lot of the suggestions in making life less complicated for our little one.

We had a wonderful few hours at Heide. We ran down hills, smelt almost all the deliciously fragrant old fashioned roses, hid in bushes, looked through the Sunday's Kitchen exhibition and ate macaroons at Cafe Vue.

I always feel revitalised, inspired and renewed when we do something out of the routine and I think she does too. We will have more adventures, my little one and I, we'll make a point of it.

i have been thinking the same thing, i used to out and about all the time with hugo, but arch seems to be dragged around with school drop offs and jobs rather than meaningful outings and experiences. well done for taking the time, i too need to do that as well.

That sounds lovely V. (I love Heide). I'm having some one on one time with my littlie right now while big sister is at kinder and I've just found myself on the computer! Whoops! I think we'll venture out into the garden....

I feel the same way with me and Chloe. I wish I had more time with her, but it is really hard now that I have two.
