Was it a Ferris style day of fun? Well not really. Then again it was never actually planned to be!
My daughter’s school finished for Easter break on Friday and so instead of her heading off to spend the day with her Nan, she stayed with me, which I have to say was nice as Daddy/Daughter days don’t come around too often. My daughter reminded me that it is my wife’s birthday at the weekend and insisted we go and buy her a ***** (deleted in case she reads it here!) so off to the town centre we headed.
I have to say I have never had as much fun shopping and stopping for hot chocolates in recent years and can totally reccomend almost five year old daughters as brilliant shopping commpanions for dads – and best of all they don’t complain about spending time in computer game shops!
The afternoon turned out quite useful as with the help of my dad, who had some spare time, we managed a skip run and to buy and replace a cover for the outside of the extractor fan (which was broken).
I had actually taken the day off as I am Agent for the elections for Harlow Conservatives and needed to be in the town in case there were any issues with the applications to run for election, for which the deadline was today at noon. There were no problems and the full list of candidates should be available on Wednesday.
So whilst there were no Ferris escapades, it was a good, productive and fun day.
