If there is an upside to being ill it is the absolute joy of being well again. Today we took a walk in Leigh Woods and everything seemed wonderful and do-able again, rather than impossible and overwhelming. Z and E loved getting muddy in the puddles and ran around collecting sticks, which is one of their favourite activities. There is a play area made from fallen logs hidden off the paths, with tree-trunk stepping stones and logs to balance and jump from. The sky was blue and cloudless and the sun shone.
