Family weekend this one. The boys have had a prolonged period of good behaviour so, as promised, Susie and I bought them a new train each for their Thomas the Tank engine set, Splatter and Dodge to be precise.
As the nearest place to buy these is the Glades in Bromley, off we went on Saturday morning. There was a dance "event" going on in the middle of the shopping centre, if I can give some advice to my dear readers it would be this; don't join in! There is nothing quite so sad as bad (but keen) dancers trying to compete with people who clearly know what they are doing. You will look silly and may even do yourself a mischief.
Talking of which, we went bowling in the afternoon, ten pin not crown green.
Susie beat me, I can live with that. What I am less pleased with was the fact that the joint team of Rupert (2 1/2 years old) and Oli (just turned 2) also beat me!!!!!! In my own defence they did have bump bars up and they used that frame thing, but even so.........
