Another day out and one that didn't get off to the best start, but turned out lovely. It poured with rain and we got soaked through while stuck on a rollercoaster that made Coby sob his heart out. I left almost £100 lighter and the picnic we took had to be consumed under the cover of several trees because the chants of hungry children cannot be ignored. After paying £6!!! for two plastic ponchos, I decided it was the best £6 I've spent in ages. I then willed it to rain, so Coby and I could make use of them. They were warm and toasty and the raindrops simply ran off of them. Eventually the sun came out and we took up position in a small arena to watch a Pirate Show, however, the heavens opened again and Coby wandered off into the shop that had wall to wall Lego treats. While trying to hold onto a hot cup of tea and keep a rain drenched bag from slipping off my shoulder, I felt around for my purse so Coby could be silenced with a Toy Story 3 Lego set...the compromises we make for our beloved children!! We did however, spend the day there with Lola, Louis and Oliver and Michaela, Maddy and Coral and I were all in the same boat, keeping a smile while secretly wanting to just drive home and pop our pyjamas on!
