This is the fence between us and next door that blew down in gales over the winter. It belongs to them not us, but as they are moving we agreed to take the rest down for them, Hope its not too long before then new people get it back up as the kids have developed a habit of spilling over and playing in both gardens while the house has been empty.
Introduced daughter No3 to geocaching today, took her out and about to find a few, found three of the five we looked for. She loved it and there is one at the end of her road, but its a magnetic micro and she did not manage to find it, will need to go have a look one day.
This was the contents of one of the cache we found, it made me smile.
OH and I went out later on to place the third, and I think final, cache in memory of Short Dog, and had another look for a different one we know is near there but no luck, think we will need to wait for the nettles and things to die back.
We did a caching day at a local country park, it is a great place for a day out, forgot how much was there for the children to do, and its free. Did a post on it here if you are interested for a great day out over the summer.
|These and nettles are best avoided if possible when out caching|
Went round to daughter to help sort Bobs bedroom ready for decorating last night, and back again today to do some more. I asked her how many clothes and toys one child actually needs, we sorted out ten black bags full for either binning or storage , and still his drawers and wardrobe are overflowing.
I sat with the twins whilst daughter went to pick Bob up from cubs. Dinky was hungry so I tided her over with a rusk.
|yum yum a rusk|
Had a lazy day today, sorted out my Tupperware cupboard as I am fed up of lids and tubs never matching when you need them, I am sure I have a gremlin, related to the odd scok monsters, who eats random lids and tubs.
Fifi is getting to the stage now where she would rather be out with her pals than stuck with me. So she went a played whilst Bob and I took the twins a walk to give their mum a break. She is growing up far to fast.
She came in for her tea and flew straight back out afterwards so Bob and I did some baking, he made chocolate cake and custard.
|she decided loom bands were better than a game with grandma!!|
What a beautiful day it was. But this annoying helicopter spend hours buzzing around quite low. Caught it just at the edge of the roof.
Daughter No3 had seen me saying last week we needed walking sticks and waterproofs for caching with. So she bought us both a walking stick, earlier Fathers day pressie for OH, and a "just because" pressie for me
