We went to Leeds Castle again a few weeks ago. It's nice because if you pay once you can go as many times as you want in a year.
The grounds are beautiful with lakes, birds, aviary, huge playground, dog collar museum?, gardens - and that's not even the castle itself.
Today (weekend at home) was a really beautiful day, we went for a walk and a picnic at the river, then just came home and sat outside in our garden with the children running around and playing while its still light at 7pm.
No fear. No what ifs. Just the beautiful light and the birds singing and freedom and safety.
Which at the end of the day is most important - isn't it?
