This Summer's open day at the Museum
We're a bit early for the cinema, so spent a half hour at the Telford Sunday car boot sale and market. I like to buy cheap batteries there, and sticky tape, this makes me happy. While the kids like to look at the spreads of toys, though I always say something like, "too big, we've got no room. " Or, "nah, it's junk." This doesn't make me popular with the kids nor the vendors.
So, I buy the kids some magnifying glasses, and Bradley a little battery hand fan, which come with two suspiciously branded batteries, soon enough they run out. But the magnifying glasses, ah, these cause hours of fun.
We used to take pix of them standing next to the giraffes pictures, but they've taken it down. Perhaps they'll repaint it and put it back.
So, I'm going to have to swap over to these penguins. For sure they'll be there for decades, which is my desire.

Moa birds would stand up to 3 meters tall. They became extinct when the Polynesians landed on the islands of New Zealand 1,000 years ago.
All the parents dropped the kids and scarpered so I had too many bottles very nice wine, which was nice for me.
Nearly everyone turned up in fancy dress: pirates and princesses.
The photos tell a beter story...
Bradley lay in.
I want to go back to bed.
Esme is pretty excited. She will see them in the morning.
