As a family we love being outside together and having adventures of varying scales. At 7, Tess will now have specific ideas about what these might be- cycling to Lake Windermere for a swim, camping out, family bike rides. This is something that we have nurtured and encouraged but are also when we are all at our happiest and most relaxed.
Through my illness in 2016 our days out were something that I would work towards in terms of my recovery, at times they were daunting but always rewarding and the memories that they created during this incredibly difficult year will always be cherished.
Hopefully, Tess and Matt will go up Snowdon and Scafell Pike with me- a few more small feet may be needed to provide encouragement for Tess along with a clear day.
We are the proud owners of an inherited tandem and I look forward to seeing Matt and Tess pedalling towards me on this chariot on ‘Pedal to the Peaks’.
6th July- on Place Fell- Tess’ training for Snowdon and Scafell Pike. (above)
Bampton Sports- Tess did heaps of races as she was motivated by the cash prizes- check out the cheeky/ opportunist feet poking out in the 3 in a duvet race! I also did the fell race- a lot of running and a great river crossing. A proper Lake District Sport day! We all loved it. (above)
