Weekend 16 & 17 June 2012


On Saturday, Luc and I went to Danbury Outdoor Centre. Whilst Luc did "Problem Solving" which he described as like being on a game show and the Obstacle Course, I ran from Paper Mill Lock to the Outdoor Centre and back. At least that was the plan. In the event, I ran up the hill to the Outdoor Centre in 37 minutes 16 seconds and was feeling a bit sluggish on the return for about 15 minutes when I had an overwhelming need to stop running - so I did. I walked back to the car which was parked at the bridge at Paper Mill Lock. The whole trip took me 1 hour 30 minutes and 50 seconds. I saw Tony, my boss at Ruggles & Jeffery who was there to pick up his children.

Julie took Georgina off to a party at the Paddocks when we got back whilst Luc did Lego.It appeared that the Entertainer at the party upset most of the children and got the hump with one child in particular. Julie reckoned that he made at least half the children cry so better than most.

In the Euros, Poland and Russia failed to qualify whilst  surprisingly Greece and Czech Republic got through. I had a low fat sausage casserolle based on a hairy bikers recipe for dinner.

On Sunday morning I went to the recycling centre (tip) to dispose of the old kitchen units and lots of off-cuts from the new one. It took me ages to unload but once again the trailer has proved invaluable.

The Castle Point Show had been postponed because of the weather so we went to the Weald Country Park show near Brentwood. It was excellent with a reenactment of the War of the Roses, dog exhibition, bouncy castles, kite making, lots of vintage cars, deers to feed and water zorbing.  The park itself is really nice and Buddy enjoyed socialising with lots of other dogs including 4 King Charles Cavaliers. Georgie was not too keen on the water zorbing but Luc was excellent at it.
