What a gorgeous day it was today here in the West Country! Neil, Livvy and me had a trip out this afternoon, and joined the many others in sunny Clevedon. As soon as we had parked the car and jumped out, Livvy spotted Donkeys and decided she would like to have a ride. She really is not the bravest child so somewhat surprised we said yes and headed towards them expecting her to change her mind when she got close - but she wasn't put off, climbed aboard a friendly brown donkey called Ben, and waited patiently for the other children to climb aboard their donkeys. Off she went stroking Ben as she went. She did wobble loads on Ben's back as she informed me 'Mummy I'm all wobbly on Ben!!!!' I asked if she liked being wobbly and she shouted back 'I'm having fun'. This is her reply to anything that she doesn't want to stop doing, generally at bedtime when I say come on sweetie time for bed her usual reply ' But Mummy I'm having fun!'. The donkey ride was closely followed by a ride on the little red train that circles the field just by the sea wall.
We walked to the beautifully restored Clevedon Pier and decided to partake in a cake and coffee en route. The pier was fascinating to Livvy who thought in order to look through the boards to see the water below, it was necessary to lie down on the floor and peep through the planks, much to the amusement of everyone else walking past her!!
She truly is a one off - quite crazy!!!!
A lovely afternoon!
