Thursday we went for a lovely long walk and I went hunting for conkers but settled for collecting some pretty leaves as the horse chestnut trees had already been raided. On Friday I had decided to take Luca to Read and Rhyme at our local library. It was so much fun and I will definitely be going every week. They were reading Dear Zoo this week, a favourite of Lucas’. He especially liked the beginning when we sang hello to every child; he had a big grin on his face when they sang hello to him.
We had arranged to meet some of our friends at the new Costa Coffee that has opened near us on Saturday morning. We are really lucky that our friends are ‘baby friendly’ and Lucas very much enjoyed the fruit salad and some lemon muffin! I think this will become a regular hangout. The weather was so lovely that day we went for another long walk that afternoon and I dragged the husband on my hunt for conkers, still to no avail. We had some fun with Lucas at the playground, he is always making us chuckle. Sunday we went swimming for the second time with Lucas and he seems to be getting used to it but he is definitely much more reserved that the other children, he clings on to us if there is too much splashing. That afternoon my Mum was cooking us Sunday dinner which was a lovely treat. It also gave us an opportunity to visit the horse chestnut tree we went to when I was young and it had plenty of conkers!! I have them in a little tub in our living room and Lucas thinks they are treasures. That was all our adventures this week.
