I seem to be hoarding ideas and plans at the moment. We are planning our summer of camping trips – which is fun! I’m really looking forward to it all. We’re planning a trip to the Lakes later in the summer, and we came across this yurt site during our search…we are very tempted!
Meanwhile, after a ‘quick’ stop at Tesco, I came out with a trolley-full of craft stuff as they had loads of kits on clearance. The girls thought Christmas had come early! That should keep craft needs at bay for a short while. I then had a longer stop at Sainsburys, and kept to my shopping list this time, apart from 5 packs of value soap, 4 in a pack for 14p or something – not bad, and helps that I’d been planning to try out soap carving for ages since seeing it on the Tate Modern for Kids site. Then, I someone on Netmums was giving away a box of mini mosaic bathroom tiles, so I went to collect them last night, as making mosaics is another thing that’s been on my to do list. E discovered them in the car today and was fascinated, as she’d taken part in a mosaic workshop at the Wychwood Festival so knows what its all about! Just got to get B to fish some half used grout from the back of the garage, and some mdf, and we’re away!
Tomorrow we are planning to rearrange the garden, if we can take the heat, as the rabbit is driving us crazy as she’s just realised she’s a rabbit and is suddenly digging for freedom, so we need to work out some under fence protection schemes as next door’s dog is expecting her in their garden at any moment :-S
Today was spent planning a bbq at Cannop Ponds (see list of our favourite places on the right)…but realised when we got there that we hadn’t packed the bbq…ah well, the best laid plans etc etc! There was plenty of paddling and exploring the woods. E managed to lose her crocs twice – B fished them out of deep mud she had jumped in, then had to retrieve them again when she managed to kick one into the pond – gah! We’ve decided we need to try out the Cannop Cycle Centre as we saw tons of families pedalling along together on all sorts of bikes, gatorbikes, trailers etc – it looked loads of fun!
