The Last Few Weeks

Matt picked up a Meccano set off ebay, which kept them busy for a day.

Giving the traction engine a run. JJ was a traction engine rather than a train for the rest of the day.

Littlest (we will have to work out something else to call her!) insists on wearing odd shoes most of the time. Granny and Grandad came to stay for a few days.

Peterborough Festival

We went to the concert in Central Park. The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra were playing. Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite by Grieg and other pieces… Very enjoyable, with a laser and fireworks ending. The boys particularly enjoyed this bit. However the fireworks at the end made the orchestra impossible to hear!


Another event during the festival week was a steel band. The children enjoyed it and they got a bit of an idea how the steel drums work. It was a welcome relief to us after going into town to close bank accounts that were no-longer used, which took far too long.
