This is my newspaper column, in print today in the Cambs Times and Wisbech Standard:
I spent the bank holiday at Go Ape, a high wire forest adventure course in Thetford Forest, Suffolk. Not one for heights myself, I helped to keep little baby Ellie occupied while I watched my children swing through the tall trees attached to harnesses. It actually looked like great fun and they certainly enjoyed the course.
By midday the sun had broken through the clouds setting the perfect scene for a BBQ lunch, which we spent the rest of the day working off with long walks through the trees and maze, finishing the day with a game of rounders on the huge green and a couple of quick sketches for my journal.
