music, musing and mazing

It's been a fine weekend so far, both with the weather, which has been practically perfect, save for a little rain yesterday afternoon (which dampened the concrete to leave that wonderful smell, so even that was welcome!) and for the activities we've enjoyed.

Yesterday I popped up to the church in Bushmead - the nice(!) part of Luton, where we used to live - to have a practice with Jude - in spite of catching one of my fingers in the bathroom door (I was having a horribly absent-minded morning!)

The members of the band are really understanding - I tend to pop home at lunchtime, and return at about five, so I can spend some time with the children during the day. We worked through three songs in total - once I've dubbed them off minidisc, they'll end up on the website, and had plenty of laughs and coffee.

Hoo Hill MazeI've been keen to visit a maze for quite a few years - considering the last one I went to was at Hampton Court about 22 years ago (!), I've waited a while! Anyway, Beth recently discovered, in a local guidebook, that there was actually one just up the road towards Bedford - called Hoo Hill Maze. We visited it this afternoon, taking a picnic, and, despite Beth having an allergy to leylandii, we all had a great time.

As well as the maze, there's a wonderful play area, with little wooden summer houses for the children and paths to run around. We'll definitely go back there - drop us an email (blog@mus-ic.co.uk) if you'd like to come along, too! Interestingly, the chap who owns the maze home-educated his children - there's a lot of us about!

There are hedge mazes all over the country - www.maze-world.com/BritainHedge.htm has a collection (although it's a little disorganised!)

Perhaps over the next twenty-two years, I'll have worked my way down the list a little!
