If any of you will remember, on my first post I made mention of orcastrating a mass Helicopter flight!
Sadly, this probably isn't as exciting as it sounds!
The helicopters I was referring to, are those which fall from trees around autumn time, spining softly as they fall.
I love those things, more than conkers, more than toffee apples, more than almost ANYTHING to do with autumn (except halloween of course!) and couldn't wait to throw a load all at once...
but the hill outside my house(more of a lump than a hill actually) had been sectioned off... so turf could grow kids play on it all the time (as that is what it is designed for) and had worn the grass away. So they'd closed it off, so it had a chance to grow back.
Eventually we got peeved at it being closed for so long, and decided today was the day! We had a box, and had been collecting these helicopters since I first mntioned it, weeks back! So we had plenty. It was a bright sunny day, the kids were around, and off we wenty, to throw them!
I wanted to throw loads, because last year we did the same thing, on a smaller scale. It looked impressive as just a few handfuls sailed through the air. So of course, I wanted it to be bigger and better!!
And here you go! Popple (my partner) is the man in charge, I was holding the 'phone, and trying to get the kids (which assembled en masse when they saw what we were doing) to be co-ordinated. I apologise for the crappy quality, and if you can't see it well, then I'm sorry again. It truly was awesome!
We'll have to try again next year too!
I'm such a big kid. I hope I never grow up!
Still playing around with my other blog, trying to get into the swing of things, and find a style I truly love (although I quite like the one I have now). I'll get there eventually!
