We went to Twycross Zoo today, my nieces and I. We joined the kids from summer school and travelled by coach, which meant that a) we were stuck there in the rain until the designated time and b) we had to sit with 50 other wet, tired and grumpy kids on the way home. The weather was awful – it lashed down all day. Mollie got a nasty bump on the head trying to avoid a puddle and we (well, I) got into a panic when it was time to get on the coach. We’d had to make an emergency toilet stop and we were REALLY late, then I couldn’t find the coach park – the signage is awful at the moment because they’re making some changes. Despite all this, we’ve had a lot of fun. Maria and Mollie can almost always find something to laugh about, and a day’s never completely grey when they’re around.
