Walking on Sunshine

Yesterday marked the beginning of Spring in the UK with the clocks going forward and with it came sunshine which was so beautiful after all the wind and rain we have had. A lovely day was had with Daz' family celebrating Daz' Dad's Birthday with a little party we held for him. The sun was shining, there was plenty of food, the windows were even opened to let in the spring air. Oh and the Wii was on and the whole family having fun playing Wii Sports on it and some of the Truck games. A wonderful day and Callum even handled going to bed late well.

Daz and I were granted a nice lie in this morning with Callum not waking up until gone 8am which definitely beats the 6am wake up call we usually get. What with it being the first day of the Easter School Holidays (yes I know Easter was the other week but the schools are confused it seems) there was no need to rush around, Daz got ready for work and Callum and I had a leisurely breakfast and a play at Excite Trucks on the Wii and then a quick tidy up in time for an old playschool friend of Callum's to pay us a visit with his Mum and sister, it was lovely to see Dawn, Fred and Abbie. Surprisingly the sunshine decided to stay with us so the kids all got to go out in the garden and have fun with water and mud. What more do young kids need? Well apart from a bath! Callum had to be dragged in eventually for lunch but afterwards (and after Dawn and Co had gone home) we were back out in the garden. There was more water, more digging and I even got some gardening done. Sure we had a disaster with the cat we are currently cat sitting (Shandy) escaped and it took us until just before 8pm to get her back but it was lovely to spend the day just Callum and I in the garden having fun and enjoying the sunshine. Fingers crossed it's still sunny and warm tomorrow so we can have all that fun again plus lots more.
