I’m still feeling rather ‘bleurgh’ – headaches and sickness and fatigue and I’m fighting the urge to basically whinge and moan about this instead! The blog is looking rather sparse and lacking, so I will try and get it updated (scanner isn’t talking to the laptop, which is a bit of an issue for scanning in MLB pages that Nin has done.)
In the meantime, however, we have had things happening. Nin was 8 just over a week ago. In the morning we went for an activity morning with the Forestry Commission Ranger at Bentley Woods, where we followed a spooky trail, then had a relay to get pieces to build a skeleton.
It spent the entire morning raining and it was only myself and two friends and their children that turned up (it was a public activity – but I guess some people don’t really do rain…) The only other people to be seen were a small group of cheery hikers who stopped to chat (pleased to see children out and about in all weathers: “It’s good for them!”) and a boy with his horse and buggy doing laps.
