It’s the bank holiday and as I sit here looking out at the rain, it feels like the heat of the last week was a lifetime ago already. Today we’re off to the River Cottage Food Fair and despite the wet weather, I’m excited. Last year we’d bought tickets but ended up being rushed to A&E with a two week old. This year, that two week old is now a toddler and he’s full of beans. He’s even slept through the last two nights… hurrah!
This week we’ve been outside at every possible opportunity. If it’s not the park, it’s the garden or off out for a walk… anything to soak up the sunshine and get out of the house. I’ve been trying out some of the new summer wardrobe, having recently bought half of Zara Baby, and we’ve embraced the sleeveless vest and nappy look in a big way. The best bit has been being able to let him roam free on the grass (even if he does gravitate to the mud) and watching him get mucky. There’s something lovely about a slightly grubby summer baby, isn’t there? This shot is from Saturday when we unexpectedly ended up walking along the canal to Turf Locks and spending the afternoon eating and drinking there. Recently that finger has been out in full force, pointing at everything and this just sums up his slightly bossy, chatty personality at the moment.
It seems that eating out has been a theme to our week. We managed to find a babysitter this week and headed over to a local steak place for dinner. Of course, it being Devon, it wouldn’t have been right to celebrate a sunny summer’s evening without a quick drink on the beach first! Sitting there, child free, we reminisced about how much our lives have changed over the last few years… isn’t it funny how a beer and the sunshine can put you in the mood for memories?! Well I say beer, somehow I ended up on the Desparados!
