We arrived at the green, picked a shady spot and set out our rug.
We had a great time playing with a couple of soft balls and reading peppa pig stories. Jake was so funny he crawled round and round the rug but wouldn't crawl on the grass he didn't like the feel of it on his knees. When he felt a bit more adventuress he started to pull himself up and walk around his pram.
I had another go at collages - this one is sharper
Then onto pudding I whipped up a sponge mix and made some large and small cupcakes.
tiny cupcakes with mini marshmallows and chocolate flake
strawberry and cream cupcakes
another fancy collage ...........
Just after Jake's teatime his other grandma came to collect him, she is going to look after him for a few days as I am returning home until next Tuesday. It was sad seeing Jake go but I knew that Kate would be sadder still when she got home from work. Kate's found it hard returning to work and misses Jake so much. But it's only three weeks before she breaks up for the summer, then she will be with him every day.
The plan for the evening was that when Kate and Seb got home from work we would have dinner watching the football. It was a crucial match for England against the Ukraine and England needed to win or draw. The football was a bit disappointing but at least England won. I decided to go to bed early as I needed to pack and get every thing sorted for going home. Although I got a little distracted when I got into bed as Kate had left me her iPad - I would love one but unfortunately it can only be added to the bottom of a very long wish list.
The next big decision was should I leave early and go to Liberty before I catch my train home - decided not to bother as the thought of a rush hour tube journey with my suitcase quickly outweighed the benefit of a shopping trip, maybe next week.
The train journey home was good and I managed to crochet some flowers which helped pass the time away and is a great way to practice stitches.
I'm back home - talk soon
