Jaqui's Daily Blog

Thursday 30th August

Today we had a "pottering about in Worthing" day.  There is something really satisfying about pottering, I always think.  But what does Team Baldwin have to say about it?

 

To start with, me (Hazel), Jack, Nanna and Mum went to Splash Point, where there was a new crazy golf course. Nanna was telling us, and we agreed, that the course looked quite boring (well, less fun than Littlehampton crazy golf!) although when we started to play it gripped us, and we were whizzing through! Unfortunately, I am AWWWFFFFUUUULLLLL at crazy golf! I am forever getting it in 10, which may sound OK, but our rule is if we don't get our ball in the hole by 10 go's, it just counts as a score of 10, so I normally give up and watch Jack and Mum get their ball into the hole in 2! I think I take after Nanna! The reason I always fail at this activity, is because I hit the ball harder than I mean to (Mum says I hold the golf club like a hockey stick, but hey it works for me. Or perhaps not Wink) This is totally different to Nanna, who hits the ball so softly that it moves only about 10cm! In the end Mum won, Nanna came 2nd, Jack came 3rd and, no surprises, I came last!

 

Hello!!! (Jack here.) Today, after lunch, we decided we'd rather go to the beach park that we'd been going to since it was built, rather than Worthing Pier....... bit of a mistake if you ask me!!! This is because, as soon as we got there we realised that we had most definitely grown out of it, as there were (literally) THOUSANDS of very small children there!!! Also, just to clarify, losing to my Nan at crazy golf was very embarrassing (since her accuracy isn't exactly the best), but luckily it was only by 2 points, so not all that bad!!!

 

You see what I mean - we pottered.  And when we had finished pottering, we went back home to bake scones, working to a recipe provided by Friend of Team Baldwin, Connor.  We have christened them "Sconners" (get it!?) and the recipe and photo will shortly be posted on the Cook Book page of this website. 

 

The Youngest of the Darling Daughters has to go home tonight, leaving Team Baldwin in the care of Mr B and me.  Hmmmmm, this holiday may be about to take a VERY interesting turn...

Mmm, was it because there were '24 men kicking a ball' that it didn't end entirely satisfactorily???

Jaqui I think your grandchildren are very lucky. You have spurred me on to write a letter to Amelia who like Hazel is away from home for the first time. 💕
