This week has been so, so cold that we’ve mostly spent it hibernating. We’ve been enjoying cuddling up, watching films and playing with the toys that Lyra received for Christmas. Today was bright and sunny though and we couldn’t resist getting out to enjoy it despite it being bitter. We wrapped up as much as we could and headed to one of our local parks to run off some steam.
Lyra headed straight to her favourite piece of play equipment, the slide. This particular slide is taller than me and I usually get so nervous that I stop Lyra climbing it halfway up. Today I thought I’d let her keep going and this is the moment she realised that I’d let her climb higher than usual. She was pretty happy with herself. Of course she expertly managed the climb up the slide and then sat herself down carefully before sliding down. I don’t know why I had been so worried. She’s my determined little daredevil and I love her so.
