Couple of weeks ago I was asked something. My reply will have been along the lines of “Yeah yeah, what your mum says is okay” because I was busy. Big mistake. We now own a 13ft wide trampoline which I have had to put together in the back garden. I do not subscribe to the school of thought that a broken bone is a rite of passage. I also think that trampolines are actually very dangerous. But hey, more fool me because I should have stopped, listened, found my foot and then put it down. Okay, so I’d have still lost but I would not be implicated. Whatever. Completed the task, it was raining but it needed testing. If it holds me, it holds the girls. When I got off my head still thought I was on it. I like my feet to be on flat stable surfaces. But right now the girls are back, the rain has stopped and they are playing and laughing on it. Hearing your kids laugh is a wonderful thing.
