This year, for the first time we didn’t plan any outings or activities for Easter. Strange considering we also took Tuesday off. Nonetheless we managed to come up with a few things to keep us occupied.
First thing that kept us busy was my sis and her family visiting on Friday, while driving down to Southampton. They were on their way to Paultons Park – Peppa Pig World and Lost Kingdom. Turns out my niece love Peppa Pig and nephew loves roller coaster. We had a good catchup while the kids looked for mini Easter eggs at home and then a hearty lunch at Steins (our family fav). After lunch we head to Bushy Park to tired out the kids. It was good to spend some time with the kids.
Next activities on our list was continuing our journey along London Loop (London Outer Orbital Path). There’s 24 sections to complete and we only managed 1 so far. So for this long weekend, we managed to complete 2 sections (totalling 12 miles) over 2 days. As the weather gets better, I hope we can complete more and try to finish the Loop by year end.
The last thing we tried was bouldering. Dav has always been a fan and did a course few years ago but he never continue doing it. We saw that there’s a climbing centre nearby our place and so we thought we’ll check it out. We took the £20 1 hour supervised induction course where an instructor gave us the safety rules and guide us through the different levels of difficulty. Turns out I have a fear of heights. When I look at others, it looks so easy. The instructions also sounded easy, for example use your legs, don’t pull yourself up with your hands. I think people forget we’re working against gravity! Anyway it was that I tried it at least once. Dav really likes it, maybe I’ll go back with him again to see if I enjoy it.
So that was our Easter break. Hope you had a good break too!
