The rain was getting heavier and we could see plenty of it blowing in across the hills so we headed back to the car.
|walking on the edge|
We headed home to make the tea, Bob helped by cutting up the leeks and Fifi helped peel the potatoes, carrots and sweet potatoes and then helped cut them up as well.

After tea it had calmed down so I pop the children back in the car and I decided as I have driven by signs for Enterkin House for years but have never actually been we would go there. Wasn't sure what to expect but it was a fairly bog standard building in the countryside.
We wandered down the hill and through the fields towards the river, but it was a bit to overgrown to take the children throw the long grass.

They decided to spend a while climbing on the gate, and Fifi leaping off of it.

then we toddled off back across the field
and back up the hill. Bob won the race to the top.
But then Fifi and I were not running, much better to hold a conversation. She was telling me about her shopping trip and her new shoes and trainers. Had to chuckle she got baby wipes when we got back and cleaned her new trainers.
Was not overly exciting but the children enjoyed the running around, mooing at the cows, baaing at the sheep and quacking at the ducks. The first thing Bob told granddad when we got back was he had seen some cows - hardly exciting when you see them every day but he thought so.
