Our street is a Home Zone (a project reclaiming our streets for communities) and I remember Felix playing outside with the other children from when he was about eight years old, which encouraged a lovely sense of community and camaraderie amongst them. But now many parents feel they can't let their children out of their sight, and whilst I totally understand why, I can't help feeling that our children are much poorer for this.Summer gets a drumming lesson from her Dad.

It was a lovely chilled day, despite the dire weather forecasts, finishing just in time to watch England put on a gutsy but fruitless performance against the Azuris in Euro 2012. Of course we were all hoping for a different result but being typically British I have to admit that the best team won, even tho it did come down to penalties.New day today though with the start of Wimbledon and even if you're not a tennis fan it's sort of exciting just to watch the spectacle - the All England Club, the Ralph Lauren officials' uniforms contrasting with the hi-tec tennis gear of the stars, the histrionics of some of them, as well as at times the awesome tennis. If I didn't have a very imminent deadline this week I'd use it as a great excuse to just sit and knit along. Later in the week though...
