I've just added my blog to myLot and have to claim it. So I have to add the following link to this post:
I wonder if it will bring me more traffic.
Changing the subject
Close to my house is a children's play park which the local council have recently upgraded, adding some more exciting things for them to do. There's even a flying fox like the one my granddaughter is enjoying in the picture. I was a bit sceptical at first because it meant doing away with a grassed area where they often gathered to play their versions of football and other games.
The new playground was launched after school was out today, and I sat in my office working for a while and listening to tannoyed announcements and excited children while trying to form words about a Wills and Probate service. Eventually I gave up and went out to witness what was going on.
The park was heaving with children, and every swing or climbing frame was occupied. I saw mothers with pushchairs chatting together while their older children enjoyed the amenities. An ice cream van was parked nearby and a council official in a bright yellow jacket headed its queue for refreshment.
I was mighty impressed. Nothing like that went on when my children were small. it was a real community gathering and it gladdened my heart.
