We had a lovely morning in the local soft play centre meeting up with the girls foster carer and her family. This is the conversation in the car heading home.
Bart: Mummy, Sara looked different today.
Me: Well, her hair has grown and looks a lot longer.
Bart: And she had a different jumper.
Me: Yes, Sara was wearing a different jumper from last time we saw her.
Bart: And different lips.
Now I didn’t notice any collagen effects… but they do say kids are observant!
Jay and I are looking for a new car. My old Kangoo is fine for pottering to and from school, playgroup, swimming and dance class, but it has that many rattles and bangs that I am nervous about driving it too far. Something underneath knocks when I turn the steering to tight and each time I hit a pot hole (of which there are many) it sounds like the rear off side tyre is going to bash its way through the wheel arch. If AJ and I are going to start driving around Scotland going to guinea pig shows, I need something I can trust.
So Jay has been spending a lot of evenings searching eBay for a Landrover Freelander. He shows me this car and that car… to be honest I got bored after the third one! As I told him, there are only three things I need to know.
- 1) Is it reliable?
- 2) How much does it cost?
And most importantWhat colour is it?
Bart: Mummy, what is that big building called?
Me: Urrmmm… pass.
Bart: Can we go inside Pass and have a look?
