Diary: Family walk

So this weekend the Saturday family walk was the Sunday family walk. Whatever. It’s still walking with the children and that’s the whole point. I guess from now on I will just call it the Family Walk… We are still going to aim to do a little walk every weekend, whatever the weather and even if the kids are playing up. It doesn’t always go so well…

We had to take turns carrying Beatrix almost from the start. Not ideal as we both have back problems! It’s really tricky to get an only just 3 year old to walk anywhere. Arthur on the other hand, who’s 5, is getting much better.

I feel a bit guilty putting this in, but I just love her face! She was upset as her legs got wet and, well, she’s 3 so it doesn’t take much…

Artie just loves getting in the river and messing about. He kept asking me to play with him but I was busy taking pictures. That’s bad isn’t it? He always asks me to play and I always seem to be doing something that I feel is more important. I need to stop what I am doing more and be in the moment with him. Minutes after this he had an almighty meltdown as water got in his wellies. I lost my temper and we had a little fall out. I feel like I am doing that a lot recently; losing my temper then apologising. It’s not easy being a mum, is it?

Despite the meltdowns and the tears, the walk was still worthwhile. This time of year there is always something to see. These Autumn apples just looked so natural and beautiful I couldn’t help but take a picture.
