Not yet too old...

...for a teddy bear's picnic in the front room!

Circumstances have seen us spending a lot of time at home as the half term holiday starts. Sometimes when everyone is climbing the walls you need to mix things up a bit, so for lunch I did a throwback to something that I used to do when the children were tiny - a living room picnic!

I call this patchwork quilt our indoor picnic blanket. It's a mini duvet cover that my Mum made for me when I was a baby! I spread it out on the floor, put out the cakes and biscuits we made earlier in the day, and then I just laid out some little bowls of chopped fruit and veg. I let the children set themselves up on the blanket while I made them some sandwiches, and I came in to find them sitting there with Harry reading a story to Mia and the favourite teddies.

After we'd finished, Mia asked if we could have a picnic for lunch every day and I heard Harry saying something that he's heard me say - that it wouldn't be as special if we did it every day! Now I just need to think of more ways that we can do the usual daily things differently to make it special!
