Well, that’s the Jubilee weekend out of the way and what fun we had! We started the festivities with a camp over in the school grounds. We took our Camper Van and slipped into full Festival mode listening to the (surprisingly good) school band. Next morning I had a very unusual workout using the apparatus in the school playground and what a great workout that was, I’m going to do it more often!
We also went to some great parties, my favourite being a 1950s one where everyone dressed in vintage 1950s clothes and burnt off the Hog Roast by Jiving and Jitterbugging. I can certainly recommend it as a great form of exercise!
Another great form of exercise is the Zumba classes that I started trying out a few weeks ago. The thing I love about Zumba is that it’s not at all precious or pressurised – just a great fun way to burn off the calories. After we’ve moved I’m going to start taking my eldest so we can have some girl time.
Two weeks to go now and I’ve sort of started packing, I’ve also started tackling the garden which needs to be pristine when we hand it back to the agents – I’ve come up with a cunning plan for mowing the lawn which doesn’t involve having to get the lawnmower out…Guinea Pig Power! – By moving the run on each day, that grass is slowly being nibbled away one small patch a day!
So the ‘pigs’ are one section of the Maxwell Zoo that’s in my good books at the moment – I can’t say the same for the Canines. Benson and Gary have both been behaving like delinquent teenagers lately and taking rather too much interest in the Guinea Pigs. I’ve had to return to full training mode with both and no letting up I’m afraid boys
