"Friday. The golden child of the weekdays. The superhero of the workweek."

 Finally the sun is back, it's been a pretty grim week weather wise and its really put a dampener on our plans. But Friday i wanted to make sure we spent our afternoon in the sun. Mrs M unfortunately had to work so I packed a huge bag of books and some snacks and we headed over to the abbey for a reading session (or the "ohhh.... Castle" as Opeie calls it). There was only one other family there so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was lovely and quiet so we found a spot and threw our blanket down. We read a few books and ate some fruit but Opeie was itching to be chased around.

After we had exhausted the abbey we jumped back in the car, rolled down the windows and headed towards Ironbridge as I wanted to get Mrs M some flowers for date night (Even though Opeie didn't go to bed till late and Mrs M dropped off soon after him, there's always next Friday i guess). Opeie helped me pick some 'pretty flowers' and some for Nanny Roo too as we had been reading about them in one of his books. We pottered around a couple if shops and then made our way to the park as Opeie was informing me that he wanted to go on the swing.

I needed to pop to a couple of shops after the park,before we picked Mrs M up from work but opeie had other ideas and fell asleep , which left me sitting in a car park taking in the view of the back of a Renault Clio, beautiful. I'm really Hoping the Met office is right and we have a few days of this so we can get out and about.Opeie was full of beans once he woke up so it was straight in to the garden when we got home. A pretty perfect afternoon.

Best collection of books ever! We're slowly collecting second hand Seuss copies for our 13mo :)

Thanks for the comment, we love Dr Seuss here. I always snap up any copies of the books i find in charity shops even if we have them. They are great for using for craft ideas. i found 'there's a wocket in my pocket' and 'one fish, two fish...' last week for 5p each. charity shops are the best.
Hope your having a great afternoon xx
