For the last few weeks, weekends haven’t felt very special. I’ve still been at home, still doing bits of schoolwork. I got to have a bit of a lie-in, but it didn’t feel much different, so it didn’t feel like I had much of a rest. Today was a bit like that. I started doing a presentation on Captain Scott and his Antarctic expedition. It was very interesting, he set off from England for the South Pole nearly a year before he started his expedition to get there. It then took him more than 100 days walking across the ice, only to die on the way back! There were loads of lessons from his experience, but you’ll have to read the presentation to learn about it!
My dad and I did our own important expedition thus afternoon; we took a bottle of wine over to Bramhall to our friend Gemma. My dad said this made us a key worker for the day. I just said it made me tired, it was nearly 20km all together!
