Last October half term I wrote this post about a family day out visiting the city.
Never,in my wildest dreams did I think that a year later my boy would be living in that city and be at university.
But he is and today we are going to visit him!
Chips is beside himself with excitement!
"I'm wishing my hours away," he said,as I tucked him up in bed last night, "so it can be morning time and we can go to see Sharky"
I was looking forward to it too. But I did not wish my sleep away....that's one thing grown ups never do!
So let's see what the day brings and whether or not we find him,in that great big city where he now dwells!
Well the day brought lots of smiles. We went for something to eat as soon as we arrived and then had a wander around the shops.
We read stories snuggled up on a Waterstones big squashy sofa and then went to the slowest cafe in the world and enjoyed a cuppa and a chat.
And that was possibly the best bit. Away from the bustle of the shops and the crowds of people.
Sat around a little round table,cup of tea to slurp and time to chat.
I want to remember that feeling because it was good. Easy going chatter,something that we do well.
Hooray for the slowest cafe in the world!
