geocaching record (for us)

It's been months since the kids rode their bikes (or us ours) and so we set out to pump up the tyres and get some geocaches near Ambury Farm Park. The eldest brother was reluctant but within minutes was happy and wanting to make it a more regular event.  Go figure... it always seems to happen that way.

In all we found twenty caches!  Those are those smiley faces on the screen shot.  Our best haul ever.  Despite the drizzle it was a really nice way to spend some time together, outdoors and moving our bodies.

If you want to give geocaching a go there's a free app and you can learn more about it here.  Everyone we've introduced it to has loved it.

the family job

Most of the last month has been spent packing, bagging, knotting and delivering over 4000 phone books. Bloody hard work which has consumed our home and our weekends.  It has been a good lesson in hard work for the boys but thank goodness we're done!  We don't even get a phone book ourselves (you can opt out here). I think they're a big waste of resources for most internet savvy people.  Daddy B thinks we might do it all again next year... I'm not so sure, perhaps I'll just get more work someplace else.
