School Trip - Moors Valley Country Park

pinocchio wanking funny don't let me catch you againSo looking forward to today that I got up at 7am and ran through to wake Jof up. Of course we had all the time in the world.
I have been given the camera for our school trip to Moors Valley Country Park.

We took a coach which seemed to go on forever and the place is full of pine trees. Miss M's camera ran out of battery so she used mine! Thus I am magically in some of my own pictures although most are blurred or have gurning kiddies at close range.
We did activities which included Pixie Potion (blue-dyed water) and clay-on-a-stick, there's a good reason for everything in this world, even if you don't know what it is.

I bought a football in the shop. It was quite cold.
I want to go back because we barely did half of it, I'm sure we'll make up a reason to go that way again, preferably in the summer.
We were late back because of the long return coach journey but it was a brilliant day.
Afterwards we boxed up all the goods to sell on Ebay and I did the weights and measurements for postage purposes. Jofs' human-measuring scales were no good at all so we used the kitchen ones.
