It was a particularly lovely day because my eldest daughter Megan came home for the weekend from university and was able to join us in visiting her big brother. Having all five of my children together again, is one of the things guaranteed to make me happy and guaranteed to mean fun. Add blues skies and sunshine to the equation and I had the recipe for a perfect day.

One of the things I love about where Joe lives is Salcey Forest, which is an area of woodland with a treetop walk. Last time we visited, Freddy was still in his buggy, so visiting with a proper walking, running, jumping and climbing toddler was a completely different experience. There was so much for him to explore and discover in nature's playground. The children all joined together and there was great examples of family teamwork as they built dens, climbed trees and jumped over ditches.

Today I really do feel blessed. I have a family that fills me with huge amounts of joy. The sun shone down on our wonderful day together...and Freddy wore his glasses all day long!! Things are definitely looking up :)
