DAY 5 - surviving Summer hols (Chew Magna's most expensive sandwich)
So this is the last day with Errol before he goes back to work. We had a lovely morning hanging out at home, then I decided it would be a great idea to go to the Home from Home cafe at Stanton Drew for lunch. We got there only to find it was closed, so we had to go for lunch at a cafe in Chew Magna... that was such a rip-off, that Errol and I ate the kids crusts for lunch. £3.75 for a basic ham sandwich. Seriously! No wonder we avoid eating out with the kids. Anyway, we made the best of it and joked a lot about it to lift the mood, and left feeling fine. We must have looked like a right bunch of reprobates as no sooner had we left the cafe, when Ivor decided to throw his wooden sword across the road - which bounced off a car. Thankfully there were no marks! It was a pleasure to come home and enjoy the afternoon. Splashing in the paddling pool, watching a bit of Dr. Who, a bit of Mr Tumble, tidying up the garden. Then Tes and Sally joined us for a BBQ in the garden. Ivy bit Ivor on the cheek which upset him - I felt more sorry for Tes and Sal, total nightmare for them. All in all a good day. Ellis tired out again by the end of the day. Watching Scooby Doo with a blanket on him and his icepack. It must take a while to adjust to not being at school. Who says that kids have endless energy. They need to recharge their batteries regularly!
