The noise of children shouting and playing filled the garden. My kids had their friends over to play for the first time in months and their whoops of joy stopped me in my tracks. This most normal thing had become almost alien.

With the playgrounds about to open, how do we get our children back into the swing of it?

Our get-together took on epic proportions. What they would do was well planned in advance. From the minute they woke, the kids were asking what time their friends - two brothers who live nearby - were coming. A blue sky promised a fine day.
