|Getting stuck in. At last.|
Tom had a football match at home against Embsay. He was in the second team again, but WOW! How good was his football? He was amazing, he was tackling, racing up and down the pitch helping his team mates and trying really really hard. He scored a goal too, which was well deserved. It was a pleasure to watch him and I actually had butterflies as I wanted them to win so much and I was nervous for him. We came away feeling really good about the whole thing.
We came home, put Tom in the shower and then headed over to Sedbergh for lunch. Tom was allowed anything he wished, we tried out a new eatery (Smatt's Duo) and he went for scrambled egg and smoked salmon on crumpets - it was well deserved. Matt went for a panini and I went for a jacket potato, and they were all really really good and large portions. In fact the portions were so large, we had to have a cupboard tea once we got home.
We then went for a walk near Tebay and the M6 at the base of the Howgills, along the River Lune near the West Coast Main Line. It was a really good location, miles from anywhere, down a long winding road from Sedbergh but, as I said, right next to the M6 (the pretty bit in the hills, just North from us). We enjoyed throwing stones in the river, playing on a swing and just enjoying the scenery (whilst spotting Eddies).
Sunday 7th May
|With Annabel and Owen|
|Tom's blue period|
|Getting into the spirit.|
Before we knew it we were back at the start?! This was way shorter than my Ingleton 5km. I tracked it with my Fitbit and yes it was only 3.9km. Hummmm. At the end Matt went off to his cricket, Tom and I found the Holmans and we went back to the colour stations for a play. The kids got stuck in playing snow angels in the powder, rolling in it, tipping it over themselves and basically having loads of fun.
We then headed to the fishery tea room we went to recently for lunch and then on to the Holmans for a water fight before showers and some wine. I then had to leave the car behind and walk back home to find Matt (they lost), made tea and went to bed. It had been a good day.
