Once again, lovely couple of hours in the company of fab children (& staff) who are thoroughly enjoying themselves and full of the day’s events. I got there just in time for a jumble auction where they could buy a range of junk materials to wrap an egg in to see whose egg was the winner when it was thrown from the top of the climbing wall. Some amazing, ingenious contraptions that would not have been out of place on Dragon’s Den. Chloe & Max were (eventually – due to great designs) joint winners.
Well – over to them:
Max Bryan CHILL YOUR BEANS
Had lots of sweets and talked .The girls kept us awake until 10:50.We got them back when Bryan sprayed deodorant all of the place and the girls didn’t like the smell. Had cereals and toast. We did climbing and abseiling then archery. Then we did quad biking and we did a special course because there was only me and bryan and we were good at quading. Then we had lunch cheese and ham baguettes. Then we did the best thing canoeing and kayaking and we jumped in at the end. Then I made the shower really hot so nobody could go in it, Ha ha.
P.S We have lots of sweets.
It was May Day, the merry morning etc. Ha! It was a wet May Day, a very , very, wet one. We experienced qualities of wetness never before experienced, ranging from climbing and abseiling , in the rain, to canoeing, in the rain and finally jumping into the lake, in the rain. By that time we were past caring.
It was ALL GOOD.
Leah capsized , got very wet and still jumped in the lake afterwards?. Truly crazy, yes?
Bryan and Max whizzed around like cool dudes and the A team canoe, Chloe, Abs, Issie and me, who were all over the place to start with, got used to it and became an efficient fighting force.
I loved it today we started with archery then rock climbing then abseiling it was so scary Holly said I had a death grip on the rope. For lunch we had toasties then Hope went to do their extras I rode penny, leah rode black jack, abi rode Scooby and chloe had simon .While we did that the boys went on quad bikes.
Early morning rise at 5:50 for me and Leah [lied in for a wile]
At breakfast we all had toast and cereal it was yummy! After that we did Archery and the rock climbing wall. Just before lunch we went horse riding in the village. I rode Scobby, Leah rode Blackjack, Chloe rode Simon and Izzy rode Penny. For lunch we hade cheese and ham toastiest.
After Lunch we went to the lake at Ginny hole and did canoeing and kayaking and I got wet wet wet and I was walking around like I pooed myself because my joggers were full of water.
For dinner we had jacket potatoes with different fillings like tuna and cheese.
After tea we had this challenge were we had to design a egg holder to stop the egg breaking and then we dropped them of the climbing wall.
SEE YOU TOMMOZ BYE!
Today was great! An early start at about 5:50 and some lush breakfast!
Today we did abseiling, rock climbing, pony trekking and water activities!
In water activities we did canoeing and kayaking, I went in a kayak and fell in, trust me to be the only one! I rode a horse called Black Jack and he was lovely. I did both abseiling and rock climbing, I was the only one in my group who got to the top. Abseiling was really, really fun.
I am missing everyone very much and looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
Well, there you go – a great day had by all despite the rain and still more to come. Can’t wait to hear all their news!!!
