{The Ordinary Moments} #5 It Felt Like Spring

I think all my wishing, and hoping (and whining) about my need for Spring to arrive was heard this weekend. We woke up on Saturday to beautiful blue skies. I don’t care what anyone says, sunlight changes your mood for the better. There was definitely the feel of Spring in the air.

I usually spend Saturdays moping – I see friends, and others on social media, enjoying their weekends as a family, and I know that as Ell plays football, our Saturdays don’t look like that – there is no brunch, and a lack of family time. It always puts me in a bad mood to be honest. Yesterday I decided I wasn’t moping around the house with the kids – I knew they would be fighting and arguing within minutes so we jumped in the car with Daddy, and headed to my mums for the afternoon (she lives in the village where he plays football).

Ell had to leave at 12.45pm and we were still eating lunch at 12.30pm, but in 15 minutes minutes we finished lunch, and got all three kids dressed, and chucked coats, helmets and scooters in the car and put on wellies.

The kids all got new scooters and helmets for Christmas and the weather has been so grey and the ground so muddy we haven’t really used them. They were so excited to try them out, so we went on a walk with Nanny, and Izzie and Ollie rode them down to the bottom of the village and then we walked back up.

We then went over to the playing field to watch Daddy at football – and they had a lovely hour and half playing on the play park, with friends and their little ones that were there too.

It was just a lovely ordinary Saturday afternoon, and the kids all had a wonderful time – and they were totally ready for bed by 6.30pm, with no complaints or resistance.

I think sometimes I need to push myself to get out of the house more, as we always have a lovely time and there is no fighting, or shouting. I always think with three of them on my own it will be way worse than it is.

On another note I got a new lens for my camera this week – a 22mm Pancake Lens, and I’m so happy with it – I’ve been struggling with the lack of light, and although I now these are outdoor photos, I’m so pleased with the ones I’ve taken with it so far – although Mason is starting to look way too grown up.

I love linking with Katie and Donna for the Ordinary Moments each week – to see who else has linked up, please click here…

    It really was a beautiful day yesterday wasn't it – we actually missed out on it for the most part as we had planned a day's shopping in the Trafford Centre but it was still nice not to have to think about umbrellas and so forth!

    I agree the sunshine instantly changes my mood for sure and yesterday was like the world telling me it's OK spring is on it's way! And yes I force myself to get out too as it is mostly less stressful x
