Let’s go fly.. Sun 4th May 2014

By | May 4, 2014

Today was a day when we didn’t have anything specific planned, after a busy yesterday it was preferable for T and D that we avoided crowded areas so we did this:


Well, not exactly that, we’re not the Von Trapp’s after all but similar.

There is a field near us, previously owned by the University. All the buildings have been sold off and 300+ homes are planned for the land but no mention has been made of the field …yet. It would be nice to think that it’s just left as it is for the community but I guess that’s unlikely so it’s nice to make use of it while we can.

The good thing is that it’s so big that dog walkers can walk around the perimeter, people can play football over the other side and well, we can do this:




The best thing was seeing T and D laughing, kicking a ball to each other and enjoying each other’s company (they may have squabbled on the way there and the way back – they did) but the time on the field was good-natured.

There was also some kite flying, D’s is a butterfly and T’s a bat. This prompted a bit of play-acting from T (which was nice to see) saying “there’s a bat after me!”.




T is such a whizz with a ball, any ball. He wanted me to take an “action” shot, I think he was hoping for a “you’ve been framed” effect when the ball knocks out the camera, but (luckily) it didn’t happen. He had a lot of fun and giggles trying though.



Large, enclosed open spaces with minimal people are ideal for T and D, they can run, laugh just have fun. A nice way to spend a sunny Sunday.

Plug time:
I am over the moon to be shortlisted in the Health category of the Brilliance in Blogging awards and would love to go further.

To do this, I would really appreciate a vote here, Health is Category 15. I can’t promise cake but it’s potentially a fantastic opportunity to raise greater awareness and acceptance of autism, an invisible disability. Thank you. Voting closes on 16th May so every vote appreciated.


Thanks for reading, I hope everyone’s day has gone well Jx

Looks like a great field for outdoor play. Hope it stays open to the community.

How great to have such a lovely green space to use – let’s hope it stays that way! Lots of lovely fun and games in the sunshine and sibling harmony while they played. Well done on being short listed and good luck, thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

Fingers crossed it stays green and accessible, thanks Fiona. It was so lovely to see them laughing together 🙂
