First we did some shopping - Have I said before that I HATE shopping? Well, I do I would sooner do housework, and I never do housework. Mummy had to nip into town to see her friend Thomas Cooke about something that's happening next year so we took Miss Em and went to Morrisons. I suppose if I have to shop then this is the place and having Miss Em with us meant we could park in the parent and child slot. For the Win!
|In case I get over excited|
We had decided to take them to Slimbridge. It's only just across the old Severn Bridge and even though it opened in 1946 I have never been there before. On the way we saw yellow signs on the side of the road telling us about the Downy Ducklings days May25 - June 2. Mummy kept telling us that she wanted a downy duckling please and getting jolly excited about it too. Please keep in mind that Mummy didn't know where we were going.
Because we were travelling at speed we didn't get to read all the sign at once so it wasn't until just before the turning for Slimbridge that we saw the bottom of the sign that said Slimbridge WWT.
"Oh I want to see the downy ducklings!" she yelled.
"They are at Slimbridge" I said
"Can we go there! please!" she cried (bear in mind that she is 47 and ought to know better)
|welly boot land|
"We are going there," I replied
Loud sounds of woot!WOOT! from both Mummy and Miss Em and then Mummy said
"It's a good job you didn't tell me earlier I might have got over excited!"
And we laughed all the way to the canal bridge.. The rest of the day was marvellous but could not hope to be better than that five minutes in the car. In fact I was sitting here going through the photographs from today and I thought "Over Excited" and had to chuckle. Mr M who was sitting at his computer raised his eyebrow so I said "over excited" and he chuckled too. With that my phone whistled at me and it was Mummy telling me that she had just made herself laugh thinking about Over excited.....
