Blue balloons - Photo of the Week


Last week end was DD2's birthday. To celebrate she was allowed to have two friends for a sleepover and the day after we all (me, DH, our four children and the two friends) went bowling and have lunch at Mc Donald's.

On the picture we had just crossed the road (these are the stairs to go onto the bridge above the road) to get to the bus stop. The surroundings were not particularly cheerful but I thought all the blue balloons were !
Yes we indeed went on the bus as our London Taxi was still in the garage, the mechanics trying to dry off the engine (another story!) so they could do the necessary repairs. And... we lost one of the buggy's wheels on the bus!! It must have got caught in the luggage rack when we got off and we only realised as the bus was going away. I have tried several times to call the station central office but apparently nothing was found...

Anyway, we still had a nice time, although it was harder work than doing the same thing for DD1 (she's 10, her sister 8). Such a difference of maturity within only two years! One of DD2's friends in particular was wearing DH's patience very thin, having a bit of an 'attitude'!

Fun memories ;)

    1. It does, doesn't it? Funny thing is by the time the bus arrived one balloon had flown away and two had burst so I couldn't have taken the picture later!
