I’m starting to fear that you may think that all we do is eat and have delicious picnics and adventures that feed your soul…
On this warm June weekend we travelled to Co. Clare to indulge our inner feral selves, and to take part in a Bushcraft weekend- (woodland survival skills)- facilitated by Chris Holland from Wholeland.
spoons, (we have been carving spoons, sporks (spoon/fork) and other delights ever since)
Chris told stories that had everyone enthralled, even the smallest ones were completely absorbed; he played digeridoo
(and some other funny instrument)
and interspersed games incorporating everything that we had learned throughout the weekend (plenty of throwing spears through hoops and squirting water at people- needless to say our boys had a ball).
and barbequed bananas with chocolate- yum-cious!!
which is simply fantastic (we are implementing time slots so that everyone can have a read!!)
The book is available here, and would make a fantastic present for… well, anyone really!
We are now at peace with our untamed garden, verdant and lush with buttercups, dock leaves, wild orchids and nettles- ‘cos, hey, we can eat most of it!!!!
Thank you Chris~ for a truly memorable weekend!
