Another lazy day

Do you ever fall into the trap of taking the easiest way out. Choosing to go down the path of least resistance. Taking the lazy option. I'm ashamed to say I do.

I have to fight the urge to be a slob when I'm at home sometimes.

Today is a good example. My four year old daughter really enjoys going on trains. And I kind of promised her we would.

But after walking the dog and eating a piece of toast I thought I can't really be arsed. I looked at the time and knew it would be too much of a rush. Instead we may as well just wait for Becky to get back from my other daughter's dance class with the car.

Then I saw her little face and realised I was being a meany. If we got a move on we could still make the 10.26.

So we grabbed our coats and ran out the door.

Such a simple thing to do. And no skin off my nose if I'm honest. And all it took was a little bit of effort to make my four year old a very happy girl.


  1. My 3 year old loves a train ride. We live opposite the station so they have been a part of his life forever. We really like day rovering together too, it's great value for a day out!

  2. 1,000,000 daddy points. I keep meaning to take mine on the train more. Every Sunday we come into Leeds swimming (where I am now), in the car. No more. Insured to get on the train.
