Scoop and Bob the Builder

En route to Ninewells hospital yesterday for Jane’s pre-Caesarean section tests we stopped off at the riverside Tesco in Dundee so that Jane could grab something to eat.

We found a parent and child parking space, right in front of a Bob the Builder, Pilchard and Scoop kiddies’ ride. Of course, Reuben and Joshua wanted to get out and meet Bob and Scoop, up close and personal.

They loved it. Gave each other a go driving, and then got back into the car when mummy and daddy told them to.

What wonderful children!

And then they screamed for about 30 minutes while I drove around Dundee trying to encourage them to sleep in the car while Jane had her appointment at the hospital.

  1. It was a struggle not to, I can tell you. I finally shouted at them and told them to be quiet after they’d been fighting over a hose nozzle!

    We went to the airport and watched planes land and take off… sometimes in the same maneuver.
