One afternoon last week Shine and I were in the lounge, me working, her playing. Golden rays began seeping in through the blinds, slowly creeping up the wall. Shine was mesmerised. For the past few months the sun has been too low in the sky in the afternoons for us to get any direct sun in our lounge. I realised that in her short life those months are probably more like years. Winter must be really long when you’re 2.
It warmed me to my very core to see her bask in the joy that a little sunlight can bring.
Go see more ordinary moments with mummy daddy me if you fancy it.
