King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone

The family went to an outdoor performance of a play - 'King Arthur and the Sword in the Stone' by the Cambridge Touring Theatre - Fun for all the family. It was great to be outside in the fresh air in a small amphitheatre at Waddesdon Manor.  The performance and music were great.  Harry and Jasper sat at the front.  Charlie sat with me near the front at the side.  The rain stayed away.

They were all a bit taken by Merlin

it was getting a bit late at the end so was a bit chilly

All the characters were great - the Magnificent Madam Mim standing out for me - while she was drinking cherry ade and being dizzy rather than doing Zumba :-)

They also handled the rather self confident child with parents that didn't seem to care he was annoying everyone including the cast albeit we could also all laugh at them too. 

Highly recommend the whole experience for the family.  HDC

Day Trip to London July 2012

We try to get to London at least once every couple of months.  Today we met up with some old work colleagues and took in Hyde Park.  Lots of walking, watching squirrels, running and laughing.  Jasper fell of his scooter the usual number of times and got hurt the usual number of times.

First stop Diana Memorial Playground

then some lunch and the Diana Memorial Fountain.  Not a warm day but we filmed the boys playing in the fountain - maybe on for YouTube.

Never belive what other people want you to believe

For everyone that is trying to do something good you can guarantee there are a horde of people who are unable to be good and therefore do something far easier - be bad.

It is easier to destroy than construct, it is easier to criticise than do, it is easier to harm than heal.

It takes years to bring life into the world, to nurture, to grow to educate and ultimately for those people to give back in a positive way to society.  However some have such a low value to life they can kill in an instance.

The point of this post?  If you truly believe what you are doing is right, you are adhering to laws and you live within a positive environment there will be loads of people who would destroy what you have because they are unable to achieve anything good for themselves.  Sure there are those who find themselves in situations where they fall outside of many things we take for granted but not as many as would claim.

If you know all this then you will never be influenced by these destructive people.

I have seen so much rubbish in the papers and on the radio in recent months about society being unfair, people not being responsible for their own actions etc.  As I parent I am responsible for how my children turn out and behave, just as I am responsible for my own actions.  I do not expect society to keep me restrained with countless rules that ultimately take away my right to think for myself.

Those who write hateful comments or try and proliferate lies have every right to do so for all the above reasons.  Equally they are the lowest form of life as they have taken all the easy and negative choices in life.  I would be ashamed to be their parents or them.
