I am taking part in the #52LittleThings challenge with AXA PPP healthcare to make small changes in my lifestyle, one week at a time to become a healthier and happier person.
This week its such a really lovely one, Take an Autumn walk, this is something I really enjoyed last year but with some ill-health floating round at the moment when a chance arose I took it!
If you are a regular reader you will know that I returned to play hockey sometime ago, however since being ill I have been advised to not play for a while as I am still having tests. So I have been taking Beth to play instead and when I got there and found that my friend had her gorgeous little girl there to I offered to keep an eye on both of them.
Being next to a hockey pitch with 2 toddlers, I was soon running out of ideas fast on what I could do to keep them entertained and I have to say we decided to go look for treasures! …. in Autumn there are so many treasures about.
They very swiftly decided that Joshua would be the one to collect the treasures and Lucy would show him where they were and hold the bag open (now that’s clever!) we then discovered some pine cones and some leaves and we had a really heavy bag by the time we were done!
I was totally honoured to see these little people’s faces as they looked at it all in wonder and started learning about the treasures that Autumn brings.
All too often these days I am too busy to notice but to take some time out in the fresh air and breathe it in and spend some time with some enthusiastic little folk it was nice to recharge and relax.
I now have some other Autumn walks planned with some lists of what we can find so we can bring back the treasures and make some craft things with them, and do you know what else will make this an epic Autumn …. I can walk myself fitter to as part of an Autumn Fitness Plan .. so I may not be playing hockey for a little while but there is no excuse to keep active.
