When we were going to fetch Zerlina, I suggested that I might take them out to lunch and we decided on Wroxhamam BARNS, as z always calls it. She loves it there and there’s lots for young children to do. And for grannies. After lunch, we went to the Junior Farm and I fed the goats, who took the feed pellets delicately, nibbling gently from my hand, and I cuddled a guinea pig, stroked lambs and talked to a splendid ginger Tamworth pig. Then we went to the playground and I went on a swing. I do love swings, though sometimes get dizzy on roundabouts. Then I had an ice cream, a Mr Whippy-type cone with a chocolate flake in. We had a brilliant time, the children were tired out by the end and fell asleep on the way home.
I stayed with Weeza and family last night, we took Zerlina to nursery school this morning, dropped W’s car for its service and then I took W and Hay home because he needed a sleep. So then I went off to the supermarket for the rest of the food and other essentials … or maybe simply desirables, but they’re the fun bit, after all.
