  • 2016 in full swing already…

    Posted on by rob

    WOW, well 2016 is already starting to shape up as planned.  I’d said in a previous post that I wanted to do more outdoors things and more Bushcraft including courses.

    In December I’d booked a Primitive Technology – Flint Knapping (July 16, 2016) day course through Hands On Bushcraft.

    I’ve also now just booked to attend the Wild Game Butchery (May 7, 2016) course also run by Hands On Bushcraft.

    I’ve also got a ticket to go and see Ray Mears present Tales of Endurance.  He’s running these sessions all over the country, go and check out where the closest location is for you.  I’ll be attending the evening session in Cheltenham and really looking forward to it.

    In terms of planned camps, so far I’m planning to join the guys from South Wales Wild Camping group on Facebook at the end of Jan.  There are no dates yet but I certainly will be going to the Camp Shaky camp in the summer, and of course the Christmas camp later in the year too.   In the coming weeks I’ll also be booking to attend The Wilderness Gathering in August.  I’ve already got the days booked off from work for that so it’s a go for sure!  I hope to see loads of friends there this year.  We went last summer just for a day and had a good time, so it has to be done this year for the entire time from 18th-21st!

    There will certainly be many more weekend camps that will be planned this year too.  Certainly will bet back to Woodside near Winchester/Alton, haven’t been there for a while so need to get back with the South coast guys.   There will also be Scout camps as well throughout the year to look forward to.

    Keep an eye on this page for more updates …. thanks for stopping by for a read.

  • Lisa visits Cottenham Primary School

    Posted on by rob

    Today was the first of two visits that Lisa will make to the Cottenham Primary School.  The kids from Pre-Schools around the area went today for their first of two orientation days at the “big” school.  They get to meet their teachers, see their new classrooms and meet the other kids that will join them.

    We were given a form to fill out where they asked us to list 3-5 other kids that Lisa would like to have in her class with her.  Lisa was lucky and all of her friends were put in the same class.

    Well, this picture pretty much sums up Lisa :) It looks like she's calling her "peeps" on a phone or something
    You can tell she’s gonna “own” the school I think Lisa’s calling her peeps
