Had I known that the British Summer was only going to last a week, I probably would have made a little bit more of it! We were certainly caught unprepared, as Alex had no Summer clothes at all, or suitable bedding for a very hot bedroom. Thank goodness for Next Directory 24 hour ordering!
Newly decked out in shorts, tshirts, a pair of sunglasses (when he agreed to wear them) and a Thomas the Tank Engine sunhat (worn almost never) – Alex loved spending all day outside. He discovered a new love – the trampoline – where he seemed to spend most of this time as his childminders! Here he is bouncing with his friend Martha:
Jacqui took the children to a local park which seemed to be defying the hosepipe ban, and running sprinklers in a little water park! Alex apparently wasn’t keen on taking a direct hit from the sprinklers, but clearly he enjoyed himself:
I spent part of my day off with him, lazing around Crystal Palace park with some friends and their toddlers – here are the boys, Freddie, Jake and Alex exploring:
Alex even went to a jubilee party last week:
