Changing the Plan

Sometimes, the cosy stay-indoors days are the best.  Some days, it’s ok to just say no, I’ve done enough for this week, to pull a duvet day, to pull the curtains and to lock the door and boil the kettle for hot chocolate.  Today was one of those days for us.  We had grand plans for today.  There is a place just far enough from here to feel like an adventure, a woodland of sorts that I visited when I was small and was so magical that I thought for years that I had dreamt it.  I’ve never been back since, but when I heard that this place was hosting a Halloween party for little ones, I couldn’t resist buying tickets.

Anyway – as you’ve probably guessed, we didn’t go.  It wasn’t the day and that’s ok; we’ll visit another time.

We decided to have some fun in the house instead.

And isn’t it so LOVELY when the bends in the road lead to patches of unexpected beauty in strange meadows.

Mothering these four is my favourite thing.

    I always find that the most unexpected moments are the loveliest, whether that be staying in when the plan was to go out or vice versa. I am a bit fan of a home day too x #TheOrdinaryMoments

    This post was just what I needed today. So full of colour, so much fun AND so simple. Sometimes it’s perfectly fine to change the plans, to stay at home and do simple things. Your little four look like they had the best time x
