As we do not have children (obviously) we are required to obtain experience of looking after children unaccompanied … luckily our friends and family appear more than willing to lend us theirs !
Today we took out my niece and nephew (Jago and Isabella) for a walk in the park in Bury and a lite lunch. We had a lovely time and the kids were really well behaved. Now I know 4 hours is nothing like being a full time parent, but I found the experience really useful and it has made me even more excited about the journey myself and Heidi are about to start.
While this was not the plan, it was not how I thought my family would come about, and it’s been painful to this point, I am starting to see a light at the end of this dark tunnel, a light I have not seen for quite some time
