Today was a lazy day. The patio doors have been flung wide open and the boys have wandered in and out all day. My eldest watches a spider spin his web on Daddy’s motorbike. My youngest feeds the hens handfuls of corn.
As dinner approaches I send the boys out to pick some raspberries so we can make a peach and raspberry crumble. Together we mix flour, sugar, ground almonds and butter before patting it down on top of the fruit and then sliding it into the oven.
My middle boy checks on his carrot seeds and screeches with delight when he sees tiny green shoots peeking out of the earth.
I love the simplicity of lazy days, and today was much needed.
