This weekend we had two little visitors again, and we’ve had so much fun!
We went to a friends daughters birthday part in the Forest of Dean!
It was an absolutely beautiful setting, and we saw jays as we drove up to park. The leaves on the trees are a beautiful show, and there was a slight chill in the air as we walked from the car to the gathering.
The girls had a fantastic time, playing with friends, meting new people and climbing on the monkey bars.
It was wonderful to see them so happy, and that joy is utterly infectious!
We had written 2 lists of things to spot whilst out on the woods – I had the scary animals on my list – crocodiles, foxes, snakes, spiders and dinosaurs. I lost that game…
I was a little anxious as I was meeting a huge group of people, many of whom I had not met before, but everyone was so warm and welcoming, it was really lovely!
Last night I escaped the house with a friend to Bristol for an improv comedy night which was so much fun!
Again, I felt pretty awkward as I was meeting a lot of new people, but I realised after a chat with my friend that everyone has these dumb anxieties, we just have different ways of dealing with them. That’s a VERY important thing to remember!!!
It was a really REALLY good night!
I’ve had a great few days. New experiences, new awareness and definitely a new outlook on various things.
And I definitely want to get out exploring more.
I hope you’ve all had a good weekend!
