We didn’t really make any plans for the bank holiday, we’ve enough going on over the next few weeks without adding further outings to the list. We decided to keep things simple by enjoying a lazy morning sofa surfing in our pjs before a picnic lunch and an outing to the beach with the basset.
Having taken our usual route along the shore, we made our way back by the park, opposite which resides the beach cafe. J & E had their heart set on having ice creams, but I was well aware that with it being a bank holiday our chances were slim. Thankfully we made it just in the nick of time to grab a couple of cones which the kids delightfully devoured, whilst the dog looked on, shoe laces of drool dripping from her slobbery chops.
Having loaded the kids up on sugar, we stayed for a further thirty minutes to let them run off some steam before attempting the top-up shop.
Dragging two kids around Tesco on a bank holiday Monday isn’t my idea of ideal but needs must. To be fair they are more of a help than a hindrance these days, they will often help to hunt the shelves for your shopping list items which speeds things up a little.
Thankfully the kids and the dog are now tucked up in (and on in the dogs case) their beds. Paul is about to crack open a beer and to watch the latest instalment of Game of Thrones whilst I’m going to hop into a hot, bubbly bath with my new Sophie Kinsella book. Happy Bank Holiday folks – I hope you had a good one!
