It's felt like all it's done since the start of the new year is rain, well in Wales anyway but luckily during the last week we had a blissful break from that, for two days the clouds cleared and sun shone and the blue sky felt endless. We make a point of going out each day regardless of the weather but as you can imagine we made full use of the beautiful winter sun even though it was bitterly cold.
As we had planned to pop into my mothers we decided to head up to"The Common" - a lovely greenbelt looking across the welsh valleys with Druid ruins, trees to climb, a small river to splash in and long grass to run through. I normally take Baby G in my Ergo sling but with the dry weather I thought I would put our new Eco friendly Greentom stroller to the test.
I will be sharing a proper review of the stroller with you soon but I cant tell people enough how much we love it and it also happens to be "the greenest stroller" on earth with both the frame and fabric made sustainably and 100% with recycled materials, but best of all the baby is so comfy in it and loves being pushed around, something he has never really enjoyed before.
As you can probably tell Mr A is going through a very distinct Camo and outdoor clothing faze and truly see's nature and the outdoors as his playground for imaginative play as well as learning and is constantly asking me what each flower or tree is called and I am having to carry around guide books with us, which is not a bad thing at all as we get to learn together.
We stayed up on the common until the sun set and we even spotted two mice taking food back and forth to there homes. Even though it was very cold the sunshine truly lifted our spirits and made me think of those hazy summer days to look forward to as well as all the flowers blooming in the springtime and for a moment it didn't seem so far away.
