Walk Three Hundred and Six – Picnic on Grace’s bench

picnic
I was abandoned by everyone apart from Xavier today. Robin and Hugo off sailing, Flo working and Tom on a Sea Cadets weekend. I tried to tackle various bits of tidying up, however Xavier can mess things up at a faster rate than I can tidy up, so as it was getting progressively worse I thought it was time to get out of the house. Despite the downpour I made a picnic lunch of smoked salmon sandwiches (today was the use by date on the packet). Only a mad person would have set out in such weather, a mad person or a mother of a four year old. Luckily after about half an hour the rain abated and we were blessed with some patches of blue sky and a rainbow. Xavier thoroughly enjoyed the puddles and mud. He also enjoyed the smoked salmon sandwiches, which has now increased the number of sandwich fillings that he is prepared to eat by 100%. So milord perhaps we should try caviar next weekend?

It's tuna mayonnaise and cucumber. He's my come-uppance for being so smug about my older children's eating habits. If he has his way he'll be taking smoked salmon sandwiches to nursery as well!
