An early morning start for me at least, I had a terrible nights sleep of only 90 minutes and came downstairs at 5am. I'm never, ever up before anyone let alone everyone. Ruben was especially shocked to see me. Hubby and I popped to the supermarket and then it was an early lunch before heading out to meet friends at Hassop Station in the Peak District. Hubby and I came here for our cycle ride date last April!
It was a bit overcast but dry thankfully so we set off to see the tunnels. This trail used to be the old railway but it's for cyclists/walkers now. It's a good path because it's flat with beautiful views but it can be a nightmare dodging the cyclists.
I brought the kids and their little friends R & E some paper and crayons to do some drawing:
Ruben drawing sheep:
Hard to tell in this photo but this mossy wall was dripping with water, looked very pretty:
The first big tunnel we came too! It's very long and our little friend R said it was 407 steps from one side to the other! You can't see the end from this side of the tunnel and even though it's lit up its still pretty dark in there!
Back home for tea, minecraft, youtube and a bit of Skype. We sat and watched Ruben's favourite TV show "Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway" with popcorn before he headed to bed. Now watching I Robot with Bailey and Piper-I can't believe I'm still awake!
