When she did finally get dressed, Grace decided to do some indoor sunbathing! It has been lovely to spend the whole morning with the back door open; I feel like the house has had a proper airing today.
After lunch, we headed over to see our friends, Emma and Charlie, at Emma's mum's house. They are both lovely with the kids, and started off with a bit of reading, while Charlie showed us some beautiful silk scarves she has been natural dying.
Waiting for muffins to cook requires a lot of distraction, and pond dipping for newts was the perfect thing. Grace was very excited to actually hold a newt.
Then, there may have been a spot of rough-and-tumble, before we finished up by having a muffin picnic in the sunshine....
