We managed 6 days out of 7 which I’m pleased with considering that Sam was ill and plans were abandoned for the first 2 days, we were away for 3 days and by the time we were back I’d picked up the bug. The day missed was a Sunday where I was mostly in bed. We did show our faces at a birthday party so there was some ‘wildish’ behaviour, bouncy castle and running around friend’s garden with nerf guns (banned in our house).
Day 1 and 2
How to appeal to a sick Sam, buy him a pocket knife. Whittling was the order of the day(s).
We were in Wales by this point so our ‘wild activity’ was an evening walk along the river and old railway lines.
Was a walk along the moat of Caerphilly castle which was teeming with waterbirds, don’t think I’ve ever seen so many geese in one place. Had to look up the grey ones. Embarrassingly also had to look up the moorhen but it was huge! Biggest moorhen I’ve ever seen.
We were heading home but before we did we had an early morning spider web hut in Grandpa Bob’s garden which is much better for that sort of thing than ours.
