This weeks My Sunday Photo is a photo from my iPhone. It was taken last night in the pitch black so the quality is absolutely awful and I’ll apologise for that as I try to take pride in my blog showcasing high quality images. I didn’t even take this photo myself, one of my lovely friends did.
Last night, when it was gone bedtime we bundled the girls in their coats and headed up to the park. If you follow me on social media you’ll know that we spend a lot of time at the park but of course, I’d never usually go there past bedtime let alone when it’s starting to get dark. But yesterday we were heading out to watching some fireworks.
Our parish council had arranged for a firework display to celebrate the Queen being the longest reigning British monarch. What a fabulous achievement by the way! I had been so excited about the fireworks and a little worried I may have hyped it up and it would be a disaster but it wasn’t.
We met with a couple of friends, the girls shared a hotdog whilst hubby and I had a burger. There was music. The girls danced and ran around the field as the sun set. The beacon was lit and the fireworks began. I expected P2 and P3 to burst into tears but they didn’t. I wouldn’t say they loved them but they certainly didn’t hate them. P2 said to me when we got home “mummy I liked the quieter ones but not the loudly ones. Fireworks are pretty”. P3 shouted furiously at them and made the sound like she was saying wow.
I looked around as the fireworks lit up the field. So many people had turned up. The community spirit was just fantastic and I felt incredibly emotional. I say it all the time but I really do feel so lucky to live here and am so glad that we made this move. The photos do not do our evening justice at all.
