In the park

Henrik and I went to the park this morning and he had a brilliant time playing. The slide is definitely his favourite, he could have spent hours sliding down. Unfortunately the steps are two high for him to climb up so I had to lift him up there and after 10 or 15 minutes I was too tired so we moved onto the see-saw which required a bit less effort on my part!

Henrik also really into metros/trains at the moment. If we walk from ours to Whitley Bay we cross a metro bridge and more often than not there is a metro going past when we are near it. He is starting to recognise the noise the metro makes before it is visible and he starts to get very excited. It is very sweet, he waves to it as it goes past.

Last Friday Henrik and I had lunch with the girls from work and took the metro into Newcastle. We also went and had a coffee with Katie from church. When we were having coffee (or tea and hot chocolate) there was a little girl sitting on the table next to us and Henrik gave her one of his big disarming smiles and the little girl ended up feeding most of her ice cream portion to Henrik who was very willing to eat it! On the way home Henrik had a treat as we sat on the first seat in the metro next to the driver, he got very excited by every metro which passed us.

Time seems to be flying by, it is nearly March! The evenings are starting to get lighter which is nice. It is nice to leave uni and it is still light. I had my second annual assessment for my PhD couple of weeks ago, hopefully I should hear soon how it went. I am doing more interviews at the moment so that's nice, something different to do :)
