We definitely have seasons for Rosie’s adventures. From November through to February we are busy doing other things and Rosie has a bit of work done on her to keep the old lady moving. A bit of respite care.
But the snowdrops are out, it’s half term and so it’s time for adventure!
Two munchkins love their days out in Rosie. Their excitement is catching. We packed up lunch and headed for Sudbury Hall and the Museum of Childhood.
After much whooping on the way there we arrive on a chilly but sunny day. These two are eager to get started.
The Museum of Childhood is fascinating particularly if you are a sixties child. Lots of stuff from my childhood! There’s really good areas about Victorian childhoods and the hands on experiences keep our two busy and interested. Scrub harder you two!
After a couple of hours play we were back in Rosie for lunch – the best bit – they love picnicking in the van.
Back at the hall which is celebrating 50 years of being part of the National Trust, half term activities include Womble based activities (Wombles are 50 this year too). For those too young to know Wombles were little creatures who lived on Wimbledon Common in a TV series and picked up everyone else’s litter- the first recyclers on TV!
So we took our map and went in search for stuff that people left behind in amongst the landscaped gardens of the hall.
There was all sorts of stuff hanging in trees. There was even a statue with sunglasses on! It also gave us time for adventures in trees.
The expressions on their faces tell you what a great trip it was. Back in Rosie we travel home planning what we are going to do in her next.
