We’ve had some lovely weather this summer holidays.
We’ve been to the cinema a couple of times. This is our cinema selfie
Then we went for a swim and had some lunch in the bar after where the little one built a tower out of beer mats
And had a play in the park
After a couple of days of rain we went for a walk down our local path yesterday to pick wild strawberries and raspberries
Then she decided we should take our bikes along the path so we went back and got the bikes.
She was amazing. She whizzed along for half a mile with me struggling to catch up.
The only problem was she forgot how to stop.
She didn’t stop pedalling.
She forgot how to use her brakes.
So when the path was getting too overgrown and she was pelting along, the only way she could stop was to steer into the hedge.
She didn’t do too badly but unfortunately she did land on a load of brambles
So then we had to get home and she refused to ride her bike back because her hand was too sore and she hated her bike now.
So for a very slow half a mile she pushed her bike home
The good thing is it gave me time to get her giggling again and stop her hating her bike so much. There was no way I could carry it with my bike – it a good solid and heavy bike she has there.
Once her hand stops being sore I’ll get her back out on her bike again – practising stopping!
