Our mornings are always far too regimented for my liking. Getting dressed, eating breakfast, cleaning up after breakfast, washing clothes, folding clothes, hoovering floors, preparing snacks. All rather monotonous. But when the sun shines and the temperature is just about perfect... well, nothing seems quite as laborious. The boys thoroughly enjoyed their first dip of the season. Personally, still a little too nippy for me, but I paddled... and enjoyed getting splashed. A nasty chunk out of one precious knee did threaten to bring the Summery dream undone. But after a bit of coaxing and sympathy and a loving lecture on keeping clear of the rocks, we were right as rain and back on track, to make the most of this early taste of Summer.
