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…..
Today, we were notified that Elliot has received a Deputy Head Commendation aware for his performance in the recent examinations at school. A great result acknowledging his determination and resilience through the last few months – a really impressive result.
Now, he needs to build on this for year 9 and onto his GCSE’s 🙂
