Outdoor playtime

Standard

Sunny weather – at last

Not fit for gardening so am playing in the side yard of the house – known around here as Nostalgia Close.

Sunny day – definitely need a deck chair.
Not happy with the blue stripe so have gone for a strip of tea towel in an attempt to bring back memories of those orange, red, green and black striped ones.

Mine!
There’s no arguing with this cat

Once that cat had claimed the chair it was the turn of the pull-along bogey.  I probably should have given it bicycle wheels and may yet do, when I find any.

The pull-along bogey, trolley,
whatever you called it when young

I’m imagining the younger boy packing away his goods and chattels to go off on an adventure with provisions, toys and cherished possessions.  A bundle of rags and cloths, a bucket, an apple and orange, the essential deflating balloon left over from someone’s birthday, a fishing net and big multi-coloured ball.  What more could he need?

Heading for the garden gate and the great escape …

Side path:
from back to front
and
front to back

Now then, the youngest has or is making his get-away, so there should be room for the next job which is a little of something else all together, I think.

  1. The stumps chalked onto the bunker door are ingenious – a real trip down Memory Lane! Will the milk bottles be full ones with the foil tops pecked by birds or empty ones with a ring of cream around the top where the slap-dash resident hasn’t rinsed them properly?

    • Hi, Zoe. I’ve ordered a couple of bottles in a crate and one with a bluetit on the cap 🙂 Am waiting to see how small they are as to whether I fiddle with their colouring. Unlike some you can buy I think some of these have a dairy name on them.
