Whilst I do work well under pressure and love being busy, it is refreshing to take time out and enjoy spending time with friends. After lunch we took a stroll down the country lanes, the children played in the blossom then fed the swan that lives in the stream. They chased after dogs, jumped in muddy puddles then Matilda managed to get herself stuck in a barbed wire fence whilst trying to catch the dog! Thankfully she wasn't hurt at all, but my heart leapt out as we turned around to see her caught.
These little incidents form part of childhood and growing up, I guess. Her struggle to disentangle provoked a great deal of amusement for her, can't quite say the same for me!
