day 185…

Big road trip today – off to South Wales with our lovely yr8s to ‘Big Pit’. A ‘Big’ ‘Pit’ as in a coal mine. Just in case you wondered.

The interesting bit for me was thinking about my mining heritage. My Grandpa (Dad’s Dad) was a miner, spending years working underground and then on the surface. Made a real connection for me. Hard to explain.

Can’t believe the life of the millions of men (and in the early days women and children) who have worked deep underground to sustain our way of living. Scary to think about how many lost their lives and continue to do so. Out of sight…
