OUR STREETS ARE MADE FOR WALKING























When coming home from kindergarten we often find ourselves traipsing around town without cause. There's something refreshing in hours of walking just for the joy of it. It's not really hours as it gets pretty dark here just after five due to the time change (although I loved having that extra hour back) but if we manage to get home this or other way, four thumbs up. Late one random afternoon Nadia was given a flu vaccine and we walked a little afterwards looking for seasonal treasures brought home without asking. What a pleasure to stroll hand in hand with this funny creature escaping my eyes to be found peeking out the tree laughing hysterically a minute later. 

Last week we had fun seeing Nadia's best friend Erin outside kindergarten. They've been so close since beginning of the rain season, we mums thought it would be a great idea to let the girls enjoy their company in discovering new things haphazardly. That morning we took a double-decker bus and sat upstairs because Nadia likes to see things from the top, especially those pigeons sat on the roofs of the bus stops. I tell you, we know what we're doing. Once we got to the Serendipity Sam's, a soft play area with slides and monkey trails Nadia got upset and wanted to leave. Once so thrilled to see her friend and play together she held me tight directing to areas of great fun. So we enjoyed it together, me and my sweaty 50% woolen sweater hitting every slide and climbing every overly wide step. No mummy chatting, no airing the fabric, thank you very much. Just little before we left they started making the most of the space while me and Hannah (Erin's mum) were more than happy to test the coziness of the sofa. It was ideal for like fifteen minutes before we left to eat. Then she dropped us off home and we dozed off on the couch until Damian came from work bringing the lightning and thunders with him. It rained and blared so ferociously I joked I should've used my credit card in full before we'll get flooded and blown away in shatters. I sent Hannah late text message letting her know how much we enjoyed today. I just thought she'd like to know. She wrote back remarkably quickly and it kinda made our day. Already perfect kind of day. 

P.S. Nadia really likes listening to Madonna. Pretty great to be a part of the world craze.   

From our pumpkin to yours, happy spooky Halloween my friends! xx

  1. Haha, how cute is that, Nadia likes to listen to Madonna! And wow, sounds like a nice evening you had :) Strolling around at the evening is so amazing, the fresh air and nothing but yourself (and some music), it's so relaxing!

    1. Listening to Madonna is understatement! She loves to dance and sing to her music, too! :)
