PGL - Day 2 part 2

12 Feb 2013

(You can log-in and comment on this article. See the bottom of the page.)

It's better than being hooked on Neighbours, at Handsworth you get not one, but two episodes a day!  So here it is, our afternoon musing...

Despite the biting cold, we rose at 7:30am, ready to face our first day of high adventure at the PGL Outward Bounds Centre.

After a healthy breakfast of scrambled eggs and cereal, we began our first activities. From wall-climbing to giant-swinging and zip-lining to mud-wallowing, we pulled up our sleeves and made the most of every moment.

A lunch of soup and jacket potato was followed by further endeavour as we balanced on the ropes, swung amongst the trees and had adventures behind the skirting boards.

Helped at every moment by the extremely friendly and always helpful PGL staff, we have been enjoying every moment here and have hardly noticed the cold in our toes.

Dinner of steak and noodles was followed by five-a-side football and an evening of wacky races.

In bed by nine. Lights out by nine-thirty. Another day is done.

Roll on tomorrow.  

Mr Oakley

Hi Chris,
We saw you crawling through the tunnel dressed like a Ninja which made us all laugh. The whole family has been looking at your and year 6's exploits, it looks like you are all having a fab time at PGL.
Although we miss you terribly, make the most of your time, it's a memory for keeps.
We cant wait to watch the next video footage - a very big thank you to the filming crew, for doing such a fantastic job.
Sweet dreams, love Mum, Dad and Matt XxX
Mr Thierry Doudrich - 12 Feb 2013 - 22:35
Teachers - well done not only for being there and working so hard before and after to make it such a wonderful trip but also, somehow late in the evening when you just want to crawl into bed and get some sleep you are spending hours editing great videos for us back at home to enjoy! Fabulous effort all, thank you so much.
Mr Jamie Dewar - 12 Feb 2013 - 23:25
Daisy Dewar, mising you loads of course. So has Phoebe, but she didn't cry today though she did yesterday cos she misses you so much. Though she did enjoy your room last night...Don't stay there too long in case she gets too settled in your room!

I see from this mornimg's update the tooth fairy came to PGL... I assume that means your wobbly tooth came out! Tell Jon that Daddy says the PGL tooth fairy pays at least £10.....

Daddy, Phoebe and Laura xxx
