* 65 *

I don't know if it's something I've mentioned before or not but I'm a stickler for routine. I leave the house at the same time every day to take the boys to school and to pick them up . I tend to park in the same places especially at the supermarket and get all tetchy when my space isn't available or when I'm a few minutes late . I really can't abide lateness.

Hub says I need to chill out and just calm down a bit so tonight for some strange reason that's exactly what I did .

Normally the boys are in their 'jamas at 6pm or as close to as possible, Gabe goes to bed at 7pm and Milo goes between 7.30pm and 7 .45pm.
This evening at nearly jama time I got itchy feet and felt the need to go somewhere. It wasn't like I could jump on a plane and head off to New York ( which I would love to do but funding would be a major problem) so me and Gabe went to the park whilst Milo stayed at home with Hub.

I don't think I've ever been down at this time before and was surprised at how many people I saw including little children , lots of them. The light was amazing with the sun going down between the trees and casting all kinds of shadows and I think that the cow parsley has taken over from where all the dandelions left off . There was millions of it , some which we picked along with a few buttercups and it is now taking pride of place in the kitchen.

Maybe I do need to chill out more and sometimes just say ' stuff it ' !!!

A quick update as the pain in my shoulder has now eased off a lot and knitting has restarted.

Also ' Mo' who left a comment on post 62 ... I would love to answer your questions but I haven't got a way of replying to you so if you would like to send me an e-mail I'll get back to you.

Lastly only 14 hours for the grand re-opening of Branes Park wooo hoooo .

I say "stuff it" often - and they are the best times. I do remember when the kids were little though that the routine did become a rut. Absolutely gorgeous photos. xxx

Good for you, I think I should try following your example. I like things to stick to a routine too (and hate leaving the house for school run even a few minutes late even tho' we'll get there on time -crazy when I think about it). Looks like you had a lovely time and the evening light was so pretty. Juliex

Gardens always look at their best in evening light, when the plants respond to the cooler evening temperature. I expect your two boys enjoyed their time with each one of you. I struggle to 'stuff it' most of the time. I am a tidy freak, cannot settle and cannot abide lateness either! x
