She had a good run round these stumps and tried to sit on each one
Life is one big adventure when you're nearly 20 months old
She ran between the slide, the swings and the wooden stumps over and again, I think she was just so excited and thrilled that she didn't know what to go on next.
She did have an investigate of the bench and a look in the beck beyond. This is the same bench that I would come to with Mary-Jane when she was in her pushchair, and would be asleep by the time we were less than half way there. I would sit on the bench in beautiful spring sunshine and knit some of my troubles away.
Mary-Jane also had a few goes on the bouncer. She also klonked her facew and back of head on the bars of it, when she was stood investigating it, I don't think she expected it to bounce as much as it did! In the background is St Johns Church. This is one that I went to doing The Viking Trail (which I do have to finish). It's the one where Mr Snuggles went AWOL. The bridge in the mid-ground has a sign on it which says it was widened in 1900.
I thought Mary-Jane would have a good nights sleep after her adventurous day. She went down well at her usual time. She awoke about twenty to eleven and didn't settle back down until gone 3am. Unheard of for her. She didn't seem tired, although she was yawning. In the end we tried to settle her with us in our bed, something we have never done before and don't want to encourage. All the usual things didn't encourage her to go on her bed and not scream and cry. Both HK and I were shattered, beyond shattered. I managed to get a few hours decent sleep after but HK didn't. We have got everything crossed that MJ has a good night tonight, and in turn we do too. Today I have been on Operation Tire Mary-Jane.
