When we got there we decided to head straight to the park and let the girls have a play before deciding to have a little walk, which is where I made the fatal mistake of leaving the pushchair and bags with snacks and drinks in.
After the girls had played we decided to follow the blue trail and off we went until it seemed we were going too far out and away from the trail - it should have gone on a loop as it was only a mile but it seemed to be going right away from where we needed to go. And so we turned around and set back, only for D to choose a route slightly away from the original one and.... well, you can tell where this is going can't you? Yes, we managed to get oh-so-slightly lost. Not so lost that we didn't see anyone but more that we found a few cars parked up in secluded areas having picnics.
In the end as we started to come across a few more people, we checked we were getting back to the park and boy was it a relief. It only took 8,000 steps and an hour of T asking 'Mummy, car juice and lunch' (getting more irate as she did so) and E either asking to be carried or saying 'I think we're lost Mummy'.
That's the last time we go for a walk without the pushchair or drinks. And as it turns out, T was hungry. We went to the cafe afterwards and she ate 2 jelly pouches, a cheese sandwich, crisps, some chips and part of a burger, as well as demolishing two drinks!
