We have some friends that live in a fabulous house at the end of civilisation with a field that can put up tents that are small and low lying and react well with wind! i think most of us now have tents specifically for their field :) and every whitsun bank for an eternity they have a party. This year lots and lots of friends could make it, including those that now are ridiculously far flung and ultra remote on tiny scottish islands!
So we had a lovely time, chatted to lovely
friends, ate lovely food and generally felt loved and happy :) aren't we
so lucky to have this family group of friends :) . Kids ran around and
were crazy, got totally wet doing a stream walk, had a fab time in their
weds onwards- The holiday wasn't over yet though! still a further week of fun and
excitement. The children and DH ran away with the circus! Well, they
camped in Norfolk as part of a home-ed circus skills camp. I managed to
go to the first day, but then i had to go back to work :( It was EVER SO
miserable leaving them there to go home.
They got to spend the
first day trying out various different circus skills, and BB had a
dramatic fall from tightrope and managed to scrape all her shin. they
didn't quite have an adequate enough first aid kit, which surprised me,
but luckilly I had some dressings at the tent. BB however, was pretty
brave and did manage to carry on. luckilly she had already tried aerial -
which she had enjoyed - as she then decided she couldnt really do it
due to the hurty shin. SB chose to specialise in hoops and then
acrobatics. FrB decided to specialise in the aerial. She also did some
work with the poi. It all looked so fabulous, and so likely to be a
wonderful week it was hard to leave! The kids did all have a great time,
and DH took some pics of the circus show they put on.
Various of our home ed friends were there too, so had a fabulous time altogether.
