We spent the day with morning with friends and shared lunch together at a reasonably priced eating establishment. Pip and I had a jaunt through town and bought our weekly veggies from the market and our much needed peanut butter from our friend's health food shop. Just as we were leaving the town centre Benedict and I popped into Marks and Spencer and bought him a lovely warm winter coat, long sleeved T-shirts, underwear and comfy cosy furry slippers. He was one happy chappy.
Upon returning home we were greeted to the news that, our part of the city was on alert regarding a bomb scare and we were awaiting the army bomb disposal team from Leeds! Apparently this is the second alert in less than a week, doh my mind must have been elsewhere when the first incident occurred!! Naturally this sparked a lengthy discussion on how to diffuse a bomb and all such other related information. Thank goodness for Dad I say, as this depth of knowledge totally eludes me!
Benedict is currently watching another installment of Tin Tin, I can see I'm going to have to read one of the mysteries and see if I can set him some literary and numerical challenges related to the read.
