The children have only just gone back to school after Christmas, and now we have made it to half term…
This week the boys are not at school so we have planned to get out and play and see stuff as much as we can. Today, we took the boys to “Go Hyper” in Dewsbury – a relatively new play centre near the shopping centre where Sainsbury and Next are. Sadly, while it was very clean and seemed like a great place, our boys were either a little young or a little old for the two sections that were available for play. There are two sections – under 5’s and over 5’s. Olly is really too old for the under five section but is way too young for the over fives. Elly has the same but opposite problem. 🙁 So, we ended up getting some drinks, crisps and cakes and enjoying a little play – then we head home.
Tomorrow we are going to head to Pirates Cove near Barnsley. Elliot is really looking forward to the trip and it wouldn’t surprise me if he is wanting to go in his Captain Jack Sparrow outfit 🙂
We also plan to get out to 10 pin bowling, football and a train trip before the week is out. Simon is hoping to get down to London for an interview however on Thursday so this may well put a small spanner in the works.
Separately, it seems that the macerator in the kitchen sink does not always work – the vacuum switch seems to be a dodgy connection / vacuum. Also, the outside tap is not working at all – Simon was pleased to have got all the car washing kit out only to find that the water was not available for rinsing etc. Johnny from the kitchen shop is coming back on Wednesday morning to take a look at the two items 🙂
