How to build a den in the woods

19 Apr

Yesterday we spent all day on Wimbledon Common. It was a gorgeous sunny day but bizarrely, we had acres of woods all to ourselves. Not that I’m complaining. What did we do with our day in the woods? Build a den of course.

    Brilliant! Your little boy looks the part too with his hat on. Love it!

      The children decided that explorer hats and backpacks would be useful.

    I love the fact that you make them wear their backpacks … as intensive pre round the world trip training.

    I bet you fill them with bricks too.

      Oh yes, we take every opportunity to toughen them up. We’re starting on the Ray Mears training next week.

    I’m beginning to think that your children are surgically attached to their backpacks….. what have you done?! Great vlog….I feel even more inadequate than usual, our woodland walks usually consist of me saying “oh look, a ladybird”… xx

      I have cunningly persuaded them that backpacks are really cool accessories. Apart from the little one who is bone idle and needs whipping into shape ASAP. Are you impressed with my marketing skills?

        You are, in short, an inspiration 😉

          As you know, Sue Sylvester is my muse. I like to think, she’d approve of my parenting methods.
