I would normally stay home on a foggy day (if there isn’t any school or work). I mean, how can anyone have outdoor fun when you can barely see your hand in front of your face?! But I spent all of December feeling poorly, and spent an entire week in bed at Christmas. So on New Year’s Eve Eve, I took the kids to Richmond Park. I was feeling guilty for not taking Moozles and Dubz out for fun holiday outings, plus I was desperate for some fresh air.
Regular readers will know that I take weekly walks in Richmond Park, so I am quite familiar with it. But it was so foggy that day that I took a wrong path and we ended up somewhere new. But there was no need to worry as we discovered an amazing tree trunk and a hollowed out tree. The kids had so much fun climbing around. And I didn’t have to worry about us walking into a deer.
We are now at a stage where we rarely go to playgrounds. And it is a relief. Playgrounds are so boring, and I would spend half the time worrying about Dubz hurting himself. But I love a trip to the park. Walking around, exploring tree trunks (which are in abundance in Richmond Park) whilst surrounded by beautiful scenery. And it turns out that they’re even fun when it’s foggy and you can barely see a thing.
