Sometimes our weekends are full of chores to be done, this weekend housework and haircuts! Haircuts were needed as Pete is due to be filmed on one of his nature reserves next week for The One Show. Very exciting indeed, especially following his appearance on Countryfile last Sunday, did you see him?
Two of his nature reserves featured on the show, the dormice (aaaahhhhh) are in one of the woodlands he manages, Siccaridge Wood and Daneway Banks where the dew pond was filmed is home to the large blue butterfly too. We were very proud, especially as he gave up one of his days on holiday in Cornwall with us to travel back to Gloucestershire for filming, which was a 12 hour round train trip!
We go to the most fabulous barber shop in Cheltenham called Balthazaar, full of vintage things to look while waiting our turn with the wonderful Kerry. It's a bit like stepping into one of the pages of Sibella Court's book Etcetera. The boys know that if they are good and sit still in the huge vintage barbers chairs, they will be rewarded with a trip to our favourite cafe Moka for a warm milk and slice of cake.
