June overview

About time I did a catch up post. A fair bit has been happening this month and I've felt like I've barely had any time to write it up.

A few weeks ago, Matt and I went along to Westonbirt Arboretum. It's not far from me and it has a walk way high up amongst the trees. When I heard about this I knew I had to check it out.

Sadly, it's not as long as I thought. It's certainly impressive and has some cool nests to climb up to, but I was hoping it spanned more area. Still, the rest of the arboretum was lovely to just walk around. The weather was nice and there were some interesting statues and areas with things made out of twigs that took our interest. We also had a map so we didn't get lost....though he did disagree at one point over where we were.

We went on a Tuesday too, so there weren't many people around. It's a place I'd happily walk around again, though there is a cost to enter.

Every year DC celebrates his birthday with a BBQ at his house. He moved house last year into his own place, so we don't have as much room as usual. However, this didn't stop us squeezing over ten people in there for a fun weekend of games and food. Not all of us stayed at the house, but there were still 4 of us sleeping in the living room.

It was such a fun weekend, we don't get together as a group often, in fact, this is the most people we're ever gotten together. It's also a good time to try out new games.
Matt (old friend Matt) taught me a game a bit like Cards Against Humanity, except you read the cards you're presented with in a strange voice or manner. It was so much fun.
Adam taught us a warewolf game where you have to guess who the warewolf is by asking questions and voting on who to hang. That too was hilarious.

On top of that there was BBQ, cake, computer games, catching up, nearly crashing into an on coming car on the way back and crashing a father's day meal.

Last but not least, Matt and I went to Weston-Super-Mare last Tuesday. It was his idea, hoping for a nice day by the seaside. Sadly he was unaware that Weston is just a beach and the tide only comes in later in the day, usually around evening time. I'm surprised he didn't know, it's pretty famous down this way. Anyway, despite that we still went.

We didn't get the nice weather we were hoping, though it didn't rain until after we left. We spent a lot of time on the pier playing games to win tickets. You needed a lot of tickets to get anything half way decent, but I didn't have the time or money, so I settled on a box of dominoes.
We also wondered around a hall of mirrors that was kinda trippy and took longer to complete a crystal maze style mirror maze than we probably should of.

We also played Crazy golf at a Pirate themed golf course. I won. Har Har!

So, it's been a fun month, interspersed with work, choir and a determination to work my way through all the Avenger's movies and TV shows. Iron Man 3 next.
