A week with the boys

We have had a busy week one way or another.
Last Friday we went to Hever castle with my mum and dad to see the jousting.  It was a lovely day and the boys spent some time in the water maze before we went to the field for a picnic and some light horsemanship!!

 Can definitely recommend it as a lovely day out and not too expensive either - lovely ice cream available!!

Tuesday saw us at Drusillas Park in Alfriston - just me and the boys this time.  Again had a lovely day looking at all the animals, playing golf, getting wet in the water part, riding on the Thomas the Tank engine train and playing in the play area.  This was a bit more expensive but we got some vouchers which was good.

This was the boys watching the penguins!

Then Thursday we went on a great adventure to London and to London Zoo.  We took the train up, then the underground from Green Park to Euston then walked to the zoo.  Took the underground as I wasn't sure about the buses, but Euston was not as buggy friendly as published!!  Despite the tube still spent about 2 hours walking!!  So got a taxi back to Victoria at the end - so worth it and the boys loved it!!  Zoo was great - loads of things to do and see - butterfly house was amazing!!

Today we did nothing taxing except for some pond dipping blogged about here
On the knitting front I finally finished the second pair of wristwarmers and packaged them up for Christmas.  Also, did some more hexipuffs, and to satisfy my need to be virtuous now and again, knitted a quick bonnet for premature babies at my local hospital!!
