Badminton Horse Trials

Yesterday we went to Cross Country day at Badminton.  It takes about 3 hours from Cambridge, although the last few miles takes a long time (it added about 45 minutes) just to get in to the ground! I have always loved watching it on the television but actually going gives you a real feel for how large the jumps actually are and how tight some of the turns are!

Review of our April to do list

Review of our April to do list:
  • Enjoy a trip to Herefordshire
 We had a great trip. The highlight for me was our walk on the Breacon Beacons and canoing down the Wye.

  • Visit some National Trust Places in the Spring
Locally we went to Wimpole and Ickworth and whilst on holiday we visited Stowe and Croft Castle

  • Attend the Cambridge Literary Festival
P and I went and had a great time, although I did not enjoy queuing for over an hour to buy Jacqueline Wilson's new book.

  • Go to Kew Gardens
Sadly, we couldn't fit this in!
  • Enjoy some Easter baking
We made easter biscuits, chocolate nests and P made some low sugar sweets from her science magazine, Whizz Pop Bang.
