As you may no we have recently bought a house, not a longterm house, a bit of a project that we intend to improve over the next 1-2 years and then move, as we are still outside our desired area. Work has already began on the house - plastering, new carpets, painting etc as well as getting a head start on our garden, which the little man has enjoyed a lot, although it's also been important to get out of the house as the lack of routine is starting to get to the little man. We discovered a little park not far from us, it's very simple, with only two swings and a slide, a little unkept but perfect for kicking a ball about and looking for little beasties. In a way it's perfect as we rarely visit a park for the play part of it, we enjoy the more natural aspects of green spaces such as jumping in puddles, kicking leaves, hiding behind trees
and basically running around enjoying the freedom and space in the fresh air.
We stayed in the park until is started to get dark, which I cannot believe was around 5pm (I will never get use to British winters). Our outdoor time is essential to our daily lives, it really is the best leveller, even when the plasterer doesn't turn up for 3 days, fresh air is the best way to relax and put things into perspective.
