This is one of those days that will stay with me for ever. We had gone to a little one’s birthday party where the field at the back of their house had just been harvested. Jack and Izzy have a rabbit, Bradley, so freebie hay is great. The picture is of 5 of the grandchildren collecting hay together, Evie wasn’t with us.
Why is it perfect? It was a flash back to my childhood where I spent hours and hours enjoying the freedom to roam in wide open spaces. It conjures up memories of Famous Five and other innocent portrayals of children’s lives and imaginations. It is also a moment captured where the grandchildren were all playing and working together, no arguments or fights, no plastic trains or electronic gizmos, just sun, fresh air and each other.
