If you can laugh through the movie that starts at 10am. If you have the stomach for lunch in McDonalds (after visiting the cow with a foot growing out of its back). If you don't mind going into every souvenir shop that you pass. And the biggest, brashest, noisiest sweet shop. If you stop for a sniff of the smelly durian fruit in Chinatown and watch the man making angel hair noodles with only his fingers. (He does noodle rabbits for appreciative audiences.) If you high-five every animal in the Rain Forest and explore three whole floors of Lego, Scalextric and remote-control helicopters without a whimper or a cup of tea.
If you know the shop where they sell the biggest ice creams on the way home ...

You can bask in hugs and sticky kisses and agree that it was the best day out EVER.

Those children will remember that day for a very long time. You really do have the best ideas.

I'll remember it too, Lucille. I'm only just recovering. But it was brilliant fun.

My daughter's friend's mother has offered to take her to the museum next week and I am so happy, I don't have to go! You are a marvel to have endured all that, sticky hugs and kisses well deserved:-)

But you do it every day, Jude - and I'm a part-timer!

Sounds like a perfect day! That version of A Christmas Carol is my very favorite.

mary said...

It was new to me, Nan. And surprisingly true to the book!

Sometime I do that sort of excursion too, but afterwards I need to lie down in a dark room and pretend that I am a slow-moving sea-creature, sometimes for weeks.

That was me on Monday morning, Mise.
