We let Milo off the lead and he ran and ran.
Sometimes he had company of the kiddie kind, sometimes he ran after a ball and sometimes he ran to make new friends...
Needless to say he needed a shower when he got home and promptly slept til tea time!
Billy tested out his new bat and ball set his cousins gave him for Christmas.
And we launched the kites for the first time in a few months.
There is something so joyful about flying a kite. It seemed to dance in the wind and the looks of delight on the kiddies faces were wonderful to see.
I felt really alive when we returned home. Invigorated even. The fresh air and burst of sunshine blew new life and energy into my soul - and, I sensed into us all.
I don't mind the wet days - as long as we have the intermittent dry, bright and beautiful days to blow those cobwebs away. To clear our minds and help refocus on the natural world around us. To laugh and sit while my family runs, climbs, plays - and as Mary Poppins would say;
' To go fly a kite and send it soaring!'
I look forward to more of these days in 2013 with grey clouds clearing and the sun shining through.
