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

Today we went to the monthly “Bring along Baby” cinema screening at Stanley Halls in South Norwood. The screening is really well run – the film today was “United Kingdom” which I really enjoyed.

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.

A visit to Primrose Hill and Regents Park

Today we headed out to visit Primrose Hill and Regents Park in London. Arriving into London Bridge we took the Northern Line to Chalk Farm before walking up to Primrose Hill and enjoying some lunch at the lookout which provides a great view over central London. We then made our way down to Regents park where we visited some of the play areas and formal gardens.

A visit to the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta

Today we went to watch some of the beautiful tall ships arriving for the Royal Greenwich Tall Ships Regatta at Woolwich Arsenal – it’s always a pleasure to see so many large sailboats moored up together. We also took another walk under the Thames using the Woolwich foot tunnel.

A visit to Brockwell Park

Today we headed out to visit Brockwell Park in South London. This park is well maintained and has some lovely views towards central London. There is a BMX track and a very popular children’s play area.

Electric Unicycling Tricks – Crossover Returning Boomerang

Just a bit of electric unicycling fun from this morning’s practice session – an extension of the “returning boomerang” – where the rider takes the opposite path to the wheel with both the wheel and the rider returning to the start point at the same time. This tick could potentially be jazzed up by tumbling (somersaulting) around the circle, or perhaps performing it around something more interesting than a set of cones!
