First kids to find This one all started at 12:05 pm whilst Lynn was relaxing in molly cuddles hair salon in Newport She was having a bit of “me” time and going blonde in the process Mark working extremely hard at work! Had seen this geo cache go live and desperately (Ed I was not desperate Lynn just slightly keen) wanted Lynn to go get it quick!! Lynn ignored said phone call after all it was “me” time and plodded off to the shops for some retail therapy
In the meantime Mark whilst apparently working hard (ed it was red nose day and tow ladies were spraying my head red it qualifies as work as far as I am concerned) continued to try in vain to contact Lynn after all it was now a real life or death emergency – a new cache less than a mile from our house (ed its constitutes an emergency in my book~) Eventually at 3pm (ed what were you doing?) Mark actually caught up with a very laid back and relaxed Lynn and passed on the co ordinates all excited like! Lynn reluctantly agreed that yes just possibly maybe she could go for it later after picking up the children from school
Eventually after gaining three children Lynn found the GPS (ed I told you were it was on the phone) found the swaps bags, put shoes on children, put coats on children sent them to get in the car I know we could of walked but I was feeling extremely relaxed after all the “me” time Just heading out of the house to sounds of “open the car mum” I replied “where are the keys” back in the house of course (ed typical!) all three children and Mum searched for another 10 minutes until the keys were found on the floor near to the front door DOH!
Out we went into the car waiting for the GPS to get a signal. Mark had told Lynn that the cache was on the road to “Emma’s” (Kelly’s best friend) house so we set off in that direction. We followed the road and before the GPS had got a signal we saw two very suspicious cars parked up at the side of the road near to a public footpath sign sigh ahh?!# we all said guess we wont be the first to find.
GPS found a signal as we parked up the three kids went running off and there were no fellow geo cachers in sight maybe we will be first to find without Mark in tow. All three children stopped at the first sign of a decline in the ground with shouts of help mum
The GPS said 70ft from the treasure and still no one around we set off down the bank with the three kids in tow when Aaron shouted “dog” As Aaron has a strong fear of dogs I turned around to grab him and then we looked for the dog (ed seems to be the wrong way round he must have great eyesight hmm why doesn’t he find more caches??) Said d0og was with some very suspicious characters Someone said “guess what we are all doing down here” I could of come up with something sarcastic but was more concerned with my son clinging onto my legs for dear life An explanation later and said dogs was on the lead and we joined tacanaman and Izzy and the lizard king who had done the hard work for us of finding the geo cache in its devious hiding place
The kids devoured the cache box removing nearly everything Aaron was lucky as he gained an extra car from Izzy and the lizard king - many thanks for that we took two travel bugs and some more geocoins, cars, monster pen, pen tops and left some small toys and key rings
Lovely to meet tacanaman in the flesh we will be in touch soon re the “dip dip dip” wink Nice to finally put a face to the voice we heard on let me enta tain you and good to meet izz and the lizard king although Aaron still wants to know why you didn’t look like a lizard!
The kids then did what kids do and ran all the way back to the car but forgot the number one rule of who has the keys he he so Mum enjoyed the relaxing walk back in the peace and quiet of a lovely afternoon the views reminding me of why we moved here just over seven years ago
Thanks for an enjoyable end to a relaxing “me time” day Nice to do a cache without the domineering (Ed surely not me?) member
