Shopping in today’s world appears to be a huge pain in the a$$

Today we ventured out to the shopping village near Castleford as the kids could do with new trainers.

The first challenge to meet us was that the M1 / M62 junction is closed when heading east 🙁 so a 15 mins detour around Rothwell was on the cards.

The car park was not too busy so that was a good sign, although security was setup to not allow a certain number of people in the centre (makes sense to ensure that there is plenty of space for everyone to not be over crowded etc).

We headed straight for the Nike outlet to find a disable queue forming outside. Having waited just over 40 mins, it was clear that there was around a further hour to wait and sadly the Rust patience ran out so we aborted and head home…..

We won’t be doing that anytime soon again 🙁

Olly’s last day of Junior School….

Believe it or not, today is Olly’s last day as a junior school pupil….

He is both delighted and saddened – delighted because he has a summer break (in the house :-)) but saddened because many of his friends will not joining him in the Senior School next term.

A big day for all year 6 children around the country and we hope you all have a terrific final day 👌
