I’ve just had one of the worst weeks of my life ever, so to escape to the outdoors at the end of it with my favourite person and my favourite animal was like bursting out of the school gates at the beginning of the summer holidays (albeit with a bit of a weight on my shoulders).
I need to be round trees, it soothes my soul.
The previous week I made a fabulous find – a place called Heart Park, where there is a lake with a beach for the kids to play on. It was one of the hottest days and I wish I had gone in my swimming kit too. I shall definitely return.
