The Best Sorts of Days


Some days are just the best, aren't they? And for me, those days are always the days I have with my family. Don't get me wrong - some days are intense and difficult, some days are in between and then some days are brilliant and amazing and well, just totally perfect. But whenever I have my most perfect days, my Husband my boys are right there with me, just like this Bank Holiday.

We hadn't been entirely sure how we were going to spend our Bank Holiday Monday, we'd planned to visit Castle Ashby Gardens in Northamptonshire on Saturday, which we did with family and had such a lovely time doing so. But asides from that Adam was working his second job on the Sunday and then we'd floated the idea that really we should be working on Monday (we both work from home and when you work for yourself Bank Holidays don't really seem to be a thing do they?! Or at least not usually for us!). Adam's busiest day of the week is Monday and so it made sense to stick to our work routine of working half the day each,  but then when we saw the weather forecast, we knew we'd be silly to miss the better than good weather at 26 degrees! And really that's been one of the huge benefits we've found with working for ourselves - we have the ability to be a bit flexible with our working times. (Hence why I'm sitting here right now late at night typing away and making my time up!).

Since having the boys, we've become quite an adventurous family - we love exploring new places and finding new and fun days out to have, but knowing that most places were going to be pretty busy with the amazing weather and with it being Bank Holiday we decided to have a bit of a chilled out garden day. We filled our garden with lots of fun things for the boys to do - we got the paddling pool out, the bubble machine, the ball pit, made up lots of water balloons, got the tunnel and the tent out and then went and bought a disposable BBQ and some meat-free barbecue food and the bits we needed to make us some Pimms and we just really enjoyed the day at home.


It was the first time that we'd ever had our own BBQ at our house (we usually have BBQ's at Adam's parent's house), but it turned out to be such a lovely day. One of the highlights was seeing Adam in the pool with the boys - they absolutely loved having him in there with them and they spent ages playing, splashing and laughing in there together before Ethan laid down on his Daddy to give him the biggest cuddle. Adam really is the best Daddy and this is one of the many reasons why - the boys and I are so incredibly lucky to have him.

Some days you just want to bottle up and capture forever, right?! Well, this was one of those days for me and also one of the many reasons that I am so pleased to have started this blog of mine those four and half years ago - I love that I have a place to share these wonderful magical days of parenthood as well as all of the other days too.
