Having been away all week and busy canvassing since I got back, I really wanted to spend some time with the girls.
I've always resisted video games, bedroom TV sets and the ever-present Nintendo Wii, in favour of actually getting out spending time in the fresh air.
Given the contradictory weather recently, it was great to have some sun, so we went to Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells. It has a beautiful boating lake, superb scenery, and a really nice traditional café.
We enjoyed ice cream cornets and lots of fresh air. Dunorlan looked great in the sunshine, and it was good to see so many people there - old, young, tourists and locals, dog walkers, people reading on the benches, couples cuddling on the grass. It was a real slice of life, with everyone getting on with each other.
It was also wonderful to see the fountain looking so good. Full marks to the Borough Council, who have spent a great deal of money on Dunorlan over the last few years. Today I could see exactly why.
