The Ordinary Moments 2017 #14 – Staying Local

I can’t remember a time recently when we have spent a Saturday locally. For so long our weekends have been packed with visiting family, days out to wonderful places and just being super busy. This Saturday however was not, and we welcomed a day to hang out locally, do very little and just be drifters!

We decided (at the request of the kids) to hit up the Odeon and watch “Boss Baby”, which has proved to be a great bribe at bed time this week, and turned out to be both funny hilarious and heartwarming. It was super chilled and just a lovely morning together. Alice did fab, the kids sat throughout and we all enjoyed ourselves.

By the time we came out, it really felt like Spring was in the air, and so we made a plan to nip home, park the car and grab the scooters! We went out on a mission to have fun in the park and for them to try out a few skills at the skate park. It was a lovely walk/run down, some more laughs, a few naughty episodes and a brave a little boy taking the plunge. Megs saw some mates, and we wound up in town for a spontaneous wander around the “St Georges Day” event.

I find that a lot of weekends we over plan or try to cram so much in. We get over excited and always have a million things we want to do, so moments where we have a break…time to hang locally and drift a bit is just lovely. It was nice to be reminded that some Saturday’s can be just as great spent locally, doing our ordinary little things, down our familiar streets, town and park. Moments spent doing the same things we have done so often since they were little. I just love the excitement as they whizz fearlessly down the pavement to town, and I love the loud laughter coming from the dark chairs of the cinema – ordinary moments I hope we will have many more of!

    What a lovely way to spend the weekend – and hurray for spring sunshine and being able to get outside without twenty layers of waterproofs!

    Sometimes it’s nice to strip the days and weekends back and be near home. We have spent every weekend in April in a different county and I’m desperate to be home for a weekend soon #TheOrdinaryMoments

    This sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend. I think Athena and Troy would love that movie! I really need to do more low key weekends and just go with the flow x
