There was one other difference. My work has kindly let me be flexible enough that I can still take Little Miss Sunshine to her Little Squirrels pre-school group every other week at Queen Elizabeth Country Park. I'm really pleased about this and it was great to go back this week. It will only be until the end of term as she goes to school in September and it's really the only thing we do together so I was keen not to lose out on it.
The theme this week was 'lambs' so after making a great fluffy sheep on a wooden spoon we headed out over the Downs to look for the lambs. Little Miss Sunshine was particularly excited to find a lambs tail (not as gory as it sounds and quite normal - but I won't go into details here for the uninitiated!) She was also slightly disappointed that the sheep wouldn't stand still to be stroked but we had a lovely time nevertheless and it was great to be out in the fresh air and we even escaped the rain. I'm going to break the rules a little and post a collage of photos so I can join up with Coombe Mill's Country Kids too.
As you can see we saw cowslips, lots of sheep on the Downs, little lambs, Little Miss Sunshine tried to get close to the sheep and there was of course some muddy puddles but her happy face says it all!
