A Weekend in Shrewsbury

I was ‘competing’ in my second ever Quadrathlon in Shrewsbury on Sunday so we decided to make a weekend of it. We all had Friday off so after a relaxed start packed the camper and headed off to the Shrewsbury Showground. It was a lovely day and we arrived in good time to an almost empty...

Shelter Building with the Scouts

The Scouts seemed to enjoy their shelter building evening in the woods that we organised for their last meeting. They all got stuck in building some pretty impressive shelters and all want to do it again with the plan of actually sleeping in them. Looks as though Anna and I have another shelter building evening...

We have visitors coming this weekend – Well, actually they are arriving Sunday night for a couple of days. It’s my Sister Trudi, her boyfriend Mike and he children Kia an Shaun.
