Father Christmas brought Little J a kite for Christmas. Since then, I have been periodically asked if it is kite flying weather. When I was on my run, aiming to do 10 miles, in the still, foggy, muggy heat this morning, I would never have imagined the day could turn into such perfect weather for kite flying. When I went out to hang the sheets on the line, I realised today was the day! Little J’s kite was very easy to put together. Just one stick and attach the string. Not like the red Peter Pal kite I remember my dad putting together when we were little.
Little J was so excited to see it in the sky, I wondered whether we would be able to fly the kite in the back garden.
Not quite enough space or wind. We are very fortunate to be a few meters away from a beautiful open green in our village. A quick change of shorts and we were back onto mission kite flying.
We have lift off, after a little run of course! A little practise was required.
It wasn’t long before Little J realised he could chase his big sister around with the kite!
Kite flying is such a fabulous way to spend time outside. I am going to put it in the car, ready to enjoy at every opportunity.
