Yesterday we dragged the children up a GINORMOUS hill in Northumberland.
It took an hour and a half to drive there but when we arrived Daisy said "I'm NOT climbing THAT!!!"
"But it will be fun!" we replied...........................
And it was fun,
but it was also very steep (which is why 95% of my photos of the children are from lower down the hill!),
(with excellent mobile phone reception!!!)
(and very poopy!)
and very windy and wet at the top.
So why were we there?
Well, it was for the first installment of our mad summer holiday scheme:
The Little Lockets are going to try to study a potted history of Britain over the next 6 weeks, with site visits, timelines, artwork, posters, maps, historical cooking (maybe), and their very own blog!
And as this is still a craft blog I thought you'd appreciate the fact that when I got to the very top of the very steep mountain I sat down and cast on my next pair of socks.
Appropriately these are Circle Socks but as they were started on the top of an Iron Age hillfort I'm going to call them my "Round House Socks"
