Not Quite As Boooorrrrrreeedddd!!

A much more mobile today, the knee is definitely on the mend, at this rate I’ll be back on the bike far sooner than expected (you’ve got to remain hopeful) So we decided to go for a walk – the only problem was where to go. I didn’t want to go too far just in case it didn’t go to plan but at the same time a walk around the block wasn’t going to be far enough. In the end we opted for the Hepworth, Wakefield’s art gallery, that is only a 15 minute walk away.

The Hepworth is a great place, even if you’re not over enthralled with the alleged art in the galleries there is still plenty to admire. There was another new exhibition for us to look at today though I have to admit I really didn’t get it and Jack, in full ‘art critic mode’ declared it pants!! So we spent most of the time admiring the views around the gallery and Jack hogged the camera to give us his favourite moments……….I’ll let you decide!!

So having walked there and back my knee has survived, though it is throbbing now, (it is early days)  The boredom will soon be over. I wonder where we can walk tomorrow……….

On the mend

More of the same tomorrow

Back to Reality, But What Fun We’ve Had…………………….

So that’s it, back to work, the holidays are over – well unless you’re Jack, he’s off until Wednesday. But what a fab holidays it has been and some of the best things we’ve done have been free (some have been mega expensive as well- still reeling from the cost of drinks at Shrek the Musical!) Building swings with rope and catapulting – free, Walking in the Peak District – free. Bike rides by the river – free. Building a den – free. Hepworth Gallery – free. Hyde Park Live – free, Olympic Marathon – free. Trains to and from London – not quite free but well worth it!!!

I don’t really know what the best bit was. The Olympics and Paralympics were fab, the atmosphere, athletes the whole thing – an experience I will never forget for so many reasons. Our traditional 4 days in London to watch the challenge cup was, as usual, great fun and we saw even more of  our capital city – still so much we haven’t done though, I’m sure we’ll be back again soon. Then there was our trip to Hathersage, the walking animals, caves, food – we’ll be going back there as well. In all honesty I can’t name a best bit, I’ve loved every minute of it art, play,family time – just what the doctor ordered.

Now reality bites, back to school and for the second time in 12 months into a class room that’s had a re-furb – brill. Still if you’d have seen the place this morning and then this afternoon, you wouldn’t have believed it was the same place. Looks like a busy few weeks ahead – good job I love my job, it’s great to be back .How many weeks to haf term……..

What a six weeks

Reality Bites
