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.
