Well it's cooled off as the weeks gone on. Tuesday I worked and when I woke up I could hear rain absolutely beating against the windows but, by the time I left, it was dry and reasonably sunny. We had a day out at World of Country Life which is just outside Exmouth. We had four little ones and three school age children and it was a lovely day out. It's somewhere I have never been before and I was very impressed. The last Tuesday I am working in the holidays we have one spare seat in the van so L is going to come along as we will be going back there. We had to have a very quick dinner as K had a trial for a local athletics club which she really enjoyed, however, she now has a dilemma as in term time she has Guides on a Tuesday.
On Wednesday K was invited on a birthday outing for one of her school friends. The parents took 5 girls down to Liskeard to Adrenalin which is an aquapark in an old quarry with wipe out style inflatables. She had a great time. Meanwhile L wanted us to walk down to The Lawns (our big park area) to have a knockabout on the tennis courts. We had fun playing our amateur tennis and at half time we walked up to the carpark where Crew Coffee was parked up and got a coffee for me and a cold drink and an ice cream for L. We are lucky to have such good facilities in our village - the courts are free to use all year round and there are toilets which are always a good thing with children in tow.
Today we have been pottering at home and packing for our trip up to Wiltshire tomorrow to see my Dad for a few days. We are taking out tent and staying on a nearby campsite so a fair bit to pack for just a three day trip! We are coming back Monday afternoon, doing a load of washing and a food shop and then going off down to a campsite near Hayle in Cornwall for three nights. Unfortunately, after all the lovely sunshine we have had the weather is set to go downhill. Raincoats will need to be packed.
I will try to remember to take photos to share when we are back.
