What a lovely day it’s been today, so nice to have some sunshine It’s the simple things – feeding the ducks, that just make me smile. Firstly we got together with some of our NCT group for a play session, and also to wish a little chap happy 1st birthday for tomorrow. He’s the eldest of our second generation kiddies – where HAS that year gone!!!
Then home for some lunch, and then a trip to our nearest duck pond with some bread. I love feeding the ducks with my son (whilst being scared stiff that he’ll fall in at any moment!). He gets so excited when the ducks start swimming over to him. It’s a very simple activity and something that spans the generations. I remember feeding the ducks with my Mum, and I still enjoy it now. We’re very lucky to have a few great duck ponds within fairly easy reach and I normally have some ‘old’ bread waiting in the freezer for days like today. I break it all up in advance so my son can just get on with it when we get to the pond.
The weather was lovely, so in-between duck feeding sessions we walked around the pond, stopped for a snack break in the sunshine before heading home. A lovely afternoon with my boy, simple things – feeding the ducks.
