Shelter Building in South Norwood Country Park

Elias and I have been working on rebuilding this shelter in South Norwood Country Park – it’s in a lovely little clearing just off the main track in the Northern sector.

Soft Play @ Beckenham Spa

Today we headed down to the Softplay facility at Beckenham Spa. Although a little bit pricey it is a good indoor local option when the weather isn’t great. It was much quieter now that the older children have gone back to school.

A visit to the Natural History Museum

Today Elias and I went to the Natural History Museum in south Kensington. Despite being very busy (due to the combination of the weather and the summer holidays) we had a wonderful time, especially with the life-sized working model of the T-Rex. The model whale and dinosaur skeletons were also a big hit.

Soft Play @ Peckham

Today we headed down to Peckham for a soft play session at Peckham Pulse Healthy Living Centre on Melon Road. The session lasted an hour and the babies really enjoyed playing. Afterwards, we had a meal and a drink outside Honest Burgers on Blenheim Grove.

Bring along Baby – Stanley Film Club

Electric Unicycling Tricks – 10-Pass Piggy-in-the-Middle Penny Spin Boomerangs

This week’s video is of some ten pass piggy-in-the-middle penny spin boomerangs. I added them to the edit at double speed as they can be a little boring to watch at normal speed! If I could work out how to cut out the precession then this would be an amazing trick. Part of the problem is that the car-park is not completely flat, and the wheel is not centrally balanced. I have also included some better footage of normal piggy-in-the-middle penny spin boomerangs from Crystal Palace Park.

Pop goes the Weasel – A visit to the Eagle Public House

Today we headed down to the corner of Shepherdess Walk and City Road to visit the Eagle public house which is name checked in the nursery ryhme “Pop goes the Weasel”

Up and down the city road
In and out the Eagle.
That’s the way the money goes,
Pop! goes the weasel.
