Here comes the sun – at last

STEVE CANAVAN: Making a molehill out of Malcolm, my very minor ailment

Have your say

I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve been in the car with two-year-old Alyssa and, as she’s seen a brightly-painted swing and slide in the distance, she’s asked if we can go to the park.

I’ve also lost count of the amount of times I’ve had to say ‘no’ as the rain

has been pelting down on the windscreen.

I admit I’m a bit bored of winter now and I’m pleased we’re coming to the end of this season with the first day of spring arriving next week.

As a parent, I’m grateful to live in

a city that caters for children really well.

When the weather is dry, you can find me pushing my daughters on the swing or waiting at the bottom of the slide to catch them in many of the parks in the city.

The park near Baffins Pond is popular with Caitlin and Alyssa, thanks to its big slide, and you might find me guiding them on the climbing frame at Milton Park.

More of this sunny, dry weather please.
