We've had a great week all in all. I've been meaning to take the kids to CERES for an excursion for a long time now. I kept putting it off though because I find it very tiring taking the kids on a trip by myself. While they are (usually) pretty good they still require a great deal of energy in supervision. So when Hubby had a day off this week, we jumped at the chance to go even though it's school holidays. It wasn't a very schoolish excursion anyway. We basically just had a good look around.
I suffered strong pangs of chard envy!
CERES has community garden plots, a scheme for restoring broken bikes, a market, permaculture nursery and so much more. The children were so well occupied that I forgot to keep snapping the camera. Hubby and I actually *gasp* held hands as we strolled along! The kids usually keep us far too busy for those sorts of shenanigans. We'll be going there again, for sure! Apparently they have music playing on a Saturday morning. I'm not sure if that's part of the market or separately but it sounds very appealing.
