Lots of thanks to Helen and Chris for giving us lunch at the Beans, where we caught up briefly (oh all too briefly) with Jax and Tim and Big and Small. As usual, the kids all did a perfect impression of well socialised and normal children. (Lots of running around and shrieking!)
After lunch, on to Hinchingbrooke Country Park for their Ancient britain day; can’t remember exactly what it was called. They’ve got a Roundhouse there and some shelter things and it was busy with medicine makers, pot makers, people being trained for Post-Roman Occupation Battle, spinners etc etc. Not sure any of my lot were hugely up for “learning” anything but enjoyed the ambience. The wode covered storyteller, doing the story of Boudicca was very dramatic. (He made Josie cry!)
In the visitors centre they kids all got the opportunity to be archaeologists and dig up artefacts. Always a winner :)) The 6 of us had a lovely time anyway.
Home now for roast dinner, Turkish Delight (rescued from gloopiness with a second boiling and more corn flour) and stories. 4 extremely tired children here, a quiet week is probably in order i think.
