My mum hates surprises. So naturally, we didn't tell her where we were going, or who was going to be there, or just what the hell was going on in general. She was surprised by the sight of all her favourite people waiting for her with a picnic fit for a king. It's safe to say her hatred of surprises dampened slightly.
We like to think we're an athletic family (we are really REALLY not) so we tried to play football (failed), tried to play Frisbee (failed), and tried to play rounders, and I may have broken my toe. This is why I don't do exercise, even rounders is a dangerous sport for me. (Rounders Tip: Don't take your shoes off so you can run better, you WILL kick the rounders post, and it WILL hurt.)
So Kearsney Abbey, I hope to see you again soon, I miss you very much.
