We Didn’t Go To The Zoo Today

Dear Mum,
The weather was horrible so we didn’t go with our original plan of going to the zoo. Instead we stayed at home this morning and watched Return of the Jedi, which Joshua seemed to thoroughly enjoy. He especially liked the Scout Walkers, or AT-STs, as he liked to spell out.
We had some of my home made sausage rolls for lunch. Josh and I made them when we got up this morning, as we thought we could take them with us if we went out.
By about three o’clock we were all getting a bit grouchy, the enforced day inside was sending us all a bit stir-crazy. So I suggested we go out somewhere, Deanne came up with a trip to Coogee beach and a pot of tea/Diet Coke/babychino. It was very pleasant and took the edge off our moods. As you can see Joshy enjoyed his babychino.
Tomorrow Dee is at work, I’m taking Josh to Scitech, as he is booked in to the Dinosaur Detectives workshop. I drop him off and he gets to do lots of investigations, dig up fossils and look at fake dino-poo to see what’s in it. I’ll stay nearby, then meet him after and we’ll spend some time being SciTreckers.

    Hi Dan What a shame – no zoo – did it rain? Loved the Josh pic, he seems to like milky froth…. I cleaned the house this morning – this being my usual Sunday morning chore, we had an early lunch then popped over to the Galton garden centre to buy some tulip bulbs. We have planted them in a big pot for the front doorstep – they should look good next spring. Dad is off fishing tonight so it will be a late tea – I have some cooked salmon and we will have salad using up the last of our own tomatoes. Next week we pack up at Druce, tidying the site up and covering it up for next year. I will then have a mountain of analysing to do and then the site report on this years work – no peace for the wicked…… I’m off to do some pot marking for a couple of hours… Dad is going to transfer my crucial files to the ‘back-up’ system tonight – he has to do it after 7pm apparently otherwise there is a cost lots of love, mum xxxx
