The Chef's first Friday in 13 months meant takeaway for tea, washed down with rosΓ© in the sunshine.

I went full Dad Mode for my last day of mini-Paternity. Cut both lawns, hung out laundry and remembered owning a guineas pig, so gave her a trim and clean too.

The Chef was buddy-less for lunch and Piglet's nursery is in the building next door to her. I collected them for a picnic lunch in the park opposite. Piglet smashed her first Greggs pasty.

Short nap and Piglet was thrown in the paddling pool to keep my feet company.
