One day last week I took the children into town to get a few bits and bobs.
We took the bus in, mainly because there is apparently something really exciting and fun about getting the bus when you’re little.
As we were waiting in the bus station to head back home I noticed a woman standing next to me, smiling while watching the children playing together with little toys they’d just bought with their pocket money.
She commented on how lovely it was to see them having so much fun together.
And it reminded me once again how lucky they are to have each other. Especially now they’re that bit older, they can really play together well. Some mornings I’ll wake up to the sound of them both in Nerys’ bed, happily playing with soft toys together, and it always makes me smile.
During the Easter holidays we went for pretty long walk from the Guildhall into town, and then back along the seafront. When we stopped for a little snack Steve lifted the children up onto the wall so I could get a few photos of them together.
I absolutely adore the photos of them with their arms wrapped around each other, although I can’t actually take credit for them. Steve was the one who took those photos, I was the one hiding behind his back and making Rhys and Nerys giggle.
The last photo is one of mine though, and I love it too, mainly for the way Nerys is throwing her head back and laughing. I just wish I knew what it was that she was finding so funny!
We’ve all had such a great time this Easter, not really getting up to much but just spending time together away from the usual day to day routine.
I think we’ll all miss each other a bit tomorrow when things go back to normal.
