Day 5: Fly a kite
Day 5 and I was struggling for an idea. I've not had a moment to myself all day and I'll be going out in a few minutes to have a birthday drink with my Dad. What could I do? Then I remembered an idea from Louise's list: fly a kite!
I bought this when Chickpea was little and it has survived throwing out sessions through the years. It's a soft sled kite from Early Learning Centre - I don't know if they still sell them.
Off we rushed to this patch of open land, hoping there was enough of a breeze. Up and down I ran trying to catch the slightest puff of wind.
Up it goes!
And down it comes. Phew! The kite is pooped and so am I!
There wasn't really enough wind so it didn't get up very far: we'll try again another day. I'll also make sure it isn't inside out! I only realised it was when I looked at the picture on the box when we came home!
If you're looking for an idea, I'd highly recommend this one. It was great fun, I laughed a lot and feel quite exhilarated. x
