nearly forgot...

... to say look what my children did this week!

No more Garden until Autumn!

I went out for lunch on Wednesday, and came home to discover the girls had put the trampoline up, all by themselves!

As you can see, there isn't a lot of garden left once the 13ft tramp is up, but by golly is it fun!

Of course it's rained non-stop since they put it up...

... but today is dry so I put a big coat on and went and had a little bounce. A very little bounce. And one somersault.

Have just taken some codeine and paracetamol, so should recover in time to cook the roast!

Somersault!! I'm impressed. Used to love trampolines but now think I'd fall off, so more wary of them!

I don't think you'd be so impressed if you saw it in action!

We got a 13ft one so that there's less chance of falling off. Kids are under strict instruction to bounce on the cross only - but then the little one does gymnastics any way so she's off doing all sorts!

I'm impressed Lisa, not only with the kids putting it up but a somersault??
I can barely jump on the thing:-)

So that's why people have kids! It's about the only time I'd like one, mind you I did have a go on a swing again last year, after too much wine, and boy could you tell. I felt so ill after a couple of swigs, I mean swings, that I had to get off.

Happy Easter xx

Juming as high as we can is great for the spirit. I think we should all put aside our shynesses and jump along with you. Let's have a trampolining party!
