‘Reading in the Bath’ reads in the Park!

Essentials for lunch at the park!

The sun was warmly shining, despite it being Autumn (I’m in Australia so our seasons are a little topsy-turvy,) and the natives ie. kids were getting restless so we packed them into the car plus some sausages to barbecue and headed off to the local park.Ā  Not one to ever miss an opportuniy to catch up on some precious reading time, I brought Charlotte my Kindle along too!

So while the Hubby cooked lunch –

and the boys explored the river for tadpoles –

Searching for Tadpoles

and played on the playground –


I made myself comfy in the shade of a tree and read –

Ah, this is the life

Such bliss!

    That is the life, indeed!!! Gah! Living in England I don’t get much opportunity for nipping to the park and reading – it looks like heaven.

    Do you get BBQ’s in the middle of a park too? And what a lovely picture of your boys playing the pond.

    Glad you enjoyed your time with Charlotte šŸ™‚

      I lived in England up until 6 years ago and can remember the chill and grey all too well! Well and trully behind me now though as most days – even in the midst of Winter – has a scattering of Sunshine at some point in the day. All the parks that I know of have barbecues in them which are free for public use. They’re well looked after and very popular, as you can imagine. Shame that I hate sausages though!

    Just a bit too chilly to do that at the moment in Blighty! So it is at home with the windows wide open, the sun streaming in and a blanket on the settee!

    Looks like the perfect spot for a bit of reading. The sun has managed to come out in old Blighty as well…but not really that warm yet!! I say yet with some optimism šŸ™‚

      ‘Warm’ and ‘Sun’ are not two words that spring to mind when you think of springtime in England! Keep up with the optimism though šŸ˜‰
