Friday 19th February
A stunningly beautiful, frosty morning – so we set out armed with provisions for the common and our fairy house. Frosty, icy puddles on the way, ice-throwing across the iced-over pools, iced mud through which to crunch with great delight.
A freak rainstorm found us huddling under the perfect shelter, whilst the girls shared a hot chocolate (super-mum moment for me, what organisational skills!!), and then on to inspect and redecorate our fairy house. New offerings left, fresh beds of moss and berries with cups of ‘acorn juice’, and the exciting discovery of fairy coins up in one of the knots of the tree for the girls:-) Then it was back via the swinging seat (fabulous ivy vine) to meet friend Mariella and show her our common.
Home for more playing and a very relaxed lovely wet afternoon. Despite all intentions to provide things to do, the girls are so happy lost in their imaginative role playing:-)
