Well the ‘great’ British weather did not deter Team GB this weekend from proceeding all steam ahead for some fun outside the house.  Thats to say while we might be outside the house, we certainly wanted to be indoors somewhere else…

Well the weather wasn’t so bad to start with so we all headed to Eaton Park so the smaller members could ride their bikes round.  It was cold but dry at least.  Its been a while since the bikes were out and initially the old saying regarding riding bikes was not ringing true… 🙂  After some perserverance we were away and enjoyed a walk/cycle round the park.  We were planning on a second circuit as we approached the car but the weather had other ideas.  The heavens opened…  A speedy retreat to the car was made.

At this point it was still only midday so beating a retreat to Team HQ didn’t seem like a great idea.  With the weather still showing signs of being temperamental we headed to Riverside for some 10 pin bowling.  Much fun was had and certainly the games were a mix of results!!  Ed won the first won and Mummy won the second!

The weather was making a break so we walked into town for a browse round the shops.  Emilie and Kieran had some Grand National winnings burning a hole in their pockets.  Needless to say a trip to HMV and Disney store was enough to see the money spent!!  Ed bought the Blu Ray boxset of Planet of the Apes…  After a stroll we headed back to the car in Riverside just as the weather was turning and we were glad to be heading home by then…

In the evening we all enjoyed a chinese takeaway and watched one of the DVDs Emilie bought.  A busy and full day!
