Today was a quiet day, for various reasons, but none-the-less spent with the kids which was great. After a lazy morning I sat the kids down to explain to them that their late Great Granny Smith had left them a bit of money to spend on something that they wanted. After much excited deliberation and discussion decisions were partially made and we headed off to Toys-r-us to see what we could find. Was fun watching them both run off in separate directions, on some sort of mad trolley dash. After a short while decisions had been made and both were sporting beaming smiles.

Personally, I was hoping to stay out and get some food, but alas I hadn’t banked on two excited children wanting to get home to play. Never mind, home it was, upon where Hex Bug where over-running the floor, and dad was having near-death experiences on a stunt scooter. Tilly on the other hand was quiet as a mouse, only lifting up her head to start a sentence with, “Dad, how do I ….”. Bless her.
