|the face of Boo after eating half Grandma's fudge brownie|
|Grandpa watching every mouthful - just like Grandma|
We went to Cadbury Garden Centre, which is now a Wyevale one so not quite as interesting as it used to be but still huge and would take a whole day to really explore. Boo scored a point from each of us here. This is how it happened.
Boo: "The last time we went to a garden centre a man was singing at us"
Mummy: "How come he could sing but you slap me if I do?"
Boo: "It's rude to slap strangers"
I found the trough I need for lettuce - nope I am not going to explain. I will photograph the results if the experiment works. Then we stopped for a Costa coffee and I treated myself to a fudge brownie... I say I treated myself but my daughter paid but you know what I mean...
Anyhoooo, Boo was hungry and Mummy wasn't sharing her cheese toastie thingy so she had half my brownie - which is good for me.
|Go to the Seaside, ride on a donkey|
What you can see behind the donkeys is the wet estuary mud, and there are warnings that there are patches of quicksand too - exciting place WSM.
Boo had a ride on the Donkey and is now in love with the little fella.
|When life serves you lemons . Suck it up!|
why you need the background. When Mummy was a baby a nasty person gave her a squeaky toy. I removed the squeak, well that's what mother's do, yes? She maintains that she was a deprived child because she thought all squeezy toys just fuffed air and didn't make a noise.
While we were seated at the table eating icecream a little dog yapped behind me.
Mummy said to Boo "You could have a dog like that."
Grandma: "One that makes that noise?"
Mummy: "Oh we'd have it silenced"
Grandpa: "Sorry, but you can't take the fuff out of that sort."
Collapse of the adults around our table. We had to explain it to Boo.
We rode along the promenade on the Land train. I am still re-learning this camera carrying thing so forgot to take pictures of the train. The wind was a very lazy one, it would rather go straight through than go around so by the time we got back to the car we were all absolutely frozen. This meant we simply had to stop at the Hungry Horse for lunch
Boo tucked into a burger with chips and beans, I had rump steak and once again it was exactly how I like it. Mummy had the "Oceans a Plenty", which has all sorts of fishy goodness in it but is far to much for me to eat.
Grandpa had the Chicken Tikka Marsala BAnquet and again the Nan bread defeated him.
Our next stop was Costco, bought pork chops and beetroot and strawberries as well as butter and tissues
Then we came home the pretty way through Dursley and Gloucester and then along the A48 through Westbury on Severn, Minsterworth, Lydney and Chepstow.
By the time we got home Biker Boy had just come home from work so he helped to carry all the stuff into the house and then we had a cuppa before they went home and we settled down to download pictures and write blogs.
A really excellent day out.
