Sundays #9

After spending last Sunday in the warmth of Fuerteventura we were absolutely delighted to see sunshine back in the UK too. 
It was my weekend with the boys, and my boyfriend was still with us which made it extra special. 
The day before my boyfriend looked after the boys for me when I was at work and they'd mentioned a bbq. I bought one 2 years ago, built it last July, and had never used it. 
I wanted a bigger one especially as this one had rusted and didn't mind too much as this one was only cheap. 
I bought a new one from Argos so the only thing we had to definitely do [on Sunday] was to collect that and to do a good shop. 

Not wanting to waste a day and the warm weather, my boyfriend suggested we go for a walk somewhere. 
Due to a road closure in the road next to me our road had become the diversion so we decided to go for a walk and to the shop first and then to relax for the rest of the day.

We mentioned a couple of places further afield for a walk but then went somewhere more local and just round the corner.
I'd only explored it once with the boys last year and this time was even better as we went down a different lane and saw some goats, sheep, cows and a Rhea. 

When we were walking back we saw an honesty box with a jar for money and some boxes of half a dozen eggs. We needed some so put a pound in and grabbed a box. It was so lovely as someone had drawn faces on the eggs and had put sweets in the box too. There was a note at the top saying that if your box had a red face it would mean you were about to have a good day. 
And we certainly did. 

We went to the supermarket, and collected the bbq, then headed home.
After lunch and a relax in the garden I took the boys to the local park on their bikes so my boyfriend could have a sort out. 
I rarely take the boys to the park on a sunny day as I've always been really anxious when it comes to the park but we had a nice time and fed some squirrels then headed home. 

The rest of the afternoon and early evening was spent in the garden having our bbq. By boyfriend definitely passed his bbq initiation test.

We laid on a blanket on the grass and I just felt so content. It's hard to relax when you have a 6 and 8 year old boy running around but the feeling of content was strong. 
I felt really lucky to have a boyfriend who is so amazing and who gets on so well with my children. And having a day like that was more than I could ever have hoped for.
