Worth It

We were stranded this morning after Dave took my only set of car keys with him to a building site far far away. It was stinking hot but the kids were restless so we decided to make the most of being carless and take a walk. We trotted up the street stopping to collect sticks and jump off sandstone walls. I sweated while the lady baby fell asleep in the sling.


It was bliss.

* Dave drove home as soon as he realised my keys were with him- a full 1.5 hour mission. Then he bought me flowers this afternoon. I'm into him. fact.

** It's River Cottage night tonight and hairyyoss is cooking.

  5. Dan sometimes does that... goes off with our only set of car keys. But unlike Dave he doesn't come back with flowers. Even when I ask him to go and bloody get some he still doesn't! Maybe I shouldn't be into him?! Got me thinking!! ;-) x
