Making sure we go on our family walk once a week has been great but it's important that we don't just waste away the rest of the weekend. Rob has recently been working a little over time on Saturday mornings, meaning that our family time is once again cut a little short. So this weekend we decided, without any real plan in mind to spend a little more time together, outside of the house, enjoying each others company.
Theo and I pottered around the house in the morning, playing and cleaning then scooted to the bus into town. I took the plunge and decided to go out all day without the pushchair. We don't tend to use it much anymore, but I feel that when we go out all day to somewhere like the centre of town, I need it. The last time we went for a little outing to town I took it but Theo ended up walking the whole way out of his own choice and I felt lumbered with the pushchair we didn't need. So I bit the bullet and took away my safety net and ventured out without it! This meant that we were free to sit at the top of the bus and were lucky enough to get a seat right at the front, much to Theo's delight!
The docks so far have never ceased to be entertaining for us. We visit them often and each time we find something new to look, be it visiting the mshed, looking at the cranes and boats or visiting the SS Great Britain.
After the ferry we made our way to Millennium Square for some perfect scooting ground, where we watched some live Olympics on the big screen, soaked up the last of the afternoon sun and somehow managed to get ourselves persuaded into treating Theo to a ride, but look at the joy in his face - how could we deny him!
So a lovely Saturday spent together!
