Today we went to the Students and Twenties Super Scavenger Hunt as organised by the Buena Vista group at Woodside Church and a group from Brickhill Church.

It started at the bandstand in Bedford Park - which was okay but because it was so cold out we were frozen before we started!! We warmed back up again when we got to the car. We headed for town to get the bits we needed in town - I then nipped home to get the bits I could think of from there and then went back to get CJ and Ian.

We headed for Biddenham and then further afield to collect answers and things. We got to Harold and we had to go to the Country Park and we had to do a landscape painting - I ended up doing most of it as the boys had run off into the woods to find a stick (I was about to include the clue that we had but I caught my drink and then CJ shouted at me - what kind of person has cream carpets in a rental property). The boys came back and had taken it literally, the stick actually had to be broken into three pieces so that we could fit it in the car after all I drive is a Fiat Seicento and thats kinda small! I've managed an Ikea Bookcase in there but we ended up balancing it precariously through the car! (I thought I had an interesting photo of my car but I found this one on Bayernernst's Photostream on Flickr)

Anyhoo so I by the time finished my bit of the painting my fingers were so painful I actually though that they were going to drop off!! I didn't have a paintbrush when I started so I used my fingers which as good an idea it sounds it actually really made my fingers even colder. I went to the loo and washed my hands but I couldn't put my hands under the warm tap because it was way too hot! It felt like it was scolding my hands - I came up with a plan I dunked my hands under the cold tap then under the warm when it was too warm to bare I'd dunk them back under the cold tap so they'd cool off again.
