Lucky I have my new wellies as the Chalke Valley History Festival is a quagmire. Glastonbury isn’t a patch on it!
Today we went Shoepping – shopping for shoes as my feet seem to have sprouted.
We went to Clarks as they measure feet and make shoes that fit both width and length.
We then went Shoepping and found 2 pairs of shoes, a pair of sandals, some welly boots and a matching brolly. The brolly is my favourite!!!!
So the cot has gone away. It is no longer in my bedroom.
I am now officially a big boy and sleep in a bed!
This morning I was awarded a green leaf as for the first time ever I stayed in bed / in my bedroom from the time the moon appeared (bedtime) until the sun came up on my gro clock. The sun means I’m allowed to wake up the big M and D. I think they are hoping this will become the rule rather than the exception… We’ll see 😉
We’re in London again (as the big M&D went to a black tie do last night) and London means the best playground ever.
Coram fields is in Bloomsbury and is just for kids. No unaccompanied adults allowed. It’s fab it’s got swings, slides (lots), sand, water, roundabouts, rabbits, goats, sheep, Guineapigs, free drop ins for arts and crafts and storytime.
(walking past St Pauls where the Queen was having a celebratory birthday mass) and had lunch at St Katherine’s dock. We went to Ping Pong a dim sum restaurant. I LOVE their black sesame prawn crackers. I rather liked the beef gyoza too. I was aldo very grown up and had a lemon and lyche mocktail.
After all of that I’m tired out!
Last weekend was a jam packed one!
GAS came down to stay so we went on a jaunt to the Royal Bath and West show. The big D was filming but we still managed to get some steam action on the B&W mini railway.
It was a nail biting ride as the loco in front derailed and when we started up again following a delay the train behind us did the same thing! They hadn’t had an incident in the preceding 4 days! If never rains but it pours!
We also looked at lots of livestock –
these cows were my favourite – and we watched a bit of show jumping. We saw beagle puppies and mountains of cheese. I ate tonnes of ice cream (as a special treat) and became a fireman. We also saw someone called Martin Clunes – it seemed to excite GAS and the big M.
Then on Sunday we went for a swim at our new health club. I have a cool new swimming costume which has integrated floats so I can quite happily jump in and swim around. I’ve very kindly given Inigo my floatation seat so he gets to come too. Afterwards we had lunch in the hotel’s beautiful garden. I had loads of fun rolying across their grass court and croquet lawn. I also found a stray croquet ball which provided huge entertainment – although it’s quite heavy when it lands on your head!
We’ve made a reward chart for Inigo and I – it’s a tree which is painted on the wall outside our bedrooms.
Here’s to the first of many green leaves and no rotten apples.
Every bank holiday needs a slide… And I was fortunate enough to find a few.
We took a trip to Sherborne Castle Country fair where there was every child’s dreams – helter skelters (I made the big m have a go)
