Happy New Year to one and all! I always get round to the New Year greetings, just two days late!
Had traumatic day at large park in leafy suburbs. Child # 1 fell off scooter twice. Child # 2 scooted right through the biggest pile of dog cr*p you have ever seen and my feeble attempts to poke it with a stick failed miserably. Now there's a big wodge of smelly stuff wedged under the mudguard.
Then he was mowed down by a child on new Christmas bike (blantantly sold without working brakes) going down a fast hill. (or fast downhill???) ; he was totally knocked flat. Just as well he was wearing four layers of clothing. You could hear the screams for miles.
Think we'll stay in the stale air of a centrally heated house tomorrow and away from the dogmenchie-besmirched*, roller-blading, bike-mowing, scooter-riding people crush of a popular park on a Bank Holiday.
* dogmenchie-besmirched = not a real word, but a lot more polite than other turns of phrase I could have used.
