How Was Your Day?

...   kids today don't seem to be as in touch with the simpler things in life as we were.

 

When I was bored I could sit there and whiz by yoyo up and down for hours ..      it used to make my wrist ache after a while though ...    

 

After a year or two I got over the problem by letting the girl over the road do it for me ...

 

Simple things ....      :)

We used to go blackberrying a lot when we were kids, towards the end of the summer holidays. My dad had some rhubarb in the garden and we'd knock up a crumble for tea.

Same.

 

Maybe it's a generational thing - kids today don't seem to be as in touch with the simpler things in life as we were.

Sitting outside in my back garden while my son runs through the sprinkler. Lovely 27 celsius out here. Sitting in the shade with a nice cool breeze. All thats missing is a pint. Wonderful way to finish my 1 week vacation.

Had some yesterday. Were tasty. I like raspberry and strawberry more though. Used to go picking wild raspberries from a local forest.

Universal Studios for us today. That's four full consecutive days of water/theme parks and I'm fvcked..

 

The wife and kids have so much energy but I just can't keep up with them. I need a sit down and rest every 10 mins and I know I'm slowing them down :(

 

Missing my afternoon naps and could do with chilling out a bit. But no time to rest and onto the next one tomorrow - swimming with dolphins at Discovery Cove so hopefully a bit more relaxing :cool:

Yup have to agree most of your generation lives their life through a 3 by 4 inch screen. It's exhilarating way to live.

You're going to need a holiday to recover from your holiday.  You could always give yourself a break for a day and let the kids wear themselves out with your wife supervising.

Swam with dolphins today at Discovery Cove :)

I've never really been very interested in wildlife, animals, nature etc. but this was incredible. 

 

Got some great photos and some wonderful memories. And a nice change from the chaos of the theme parks...

We did that in Jamaica and, although a great experience, we literally stood in a pool full of dolphin shite for about an hour. You could feel it on your toes and smell it. It was a big 'pen' so to speak, but not at all clean.

Not so much my day, but at the top corner of vicky park (Kia garage roundabout) there's been a hooded guy with an e-cig and a 4 pinter of a milk. He's literally been sat there, talking to himself and necking milk since Saturday if not before lol 

 

If he's off his head, then he's done really well to not get ran over when he's off for more dairy.

My best friend and her husband - who has struggled with her infertility, suffering miscarriage after miscarriage  and years of utter heartbreak - has just this minute been approved for adoption of two 9 month old twins. Very soon, she's finally going to be a mum! Despite my own depression I am utterly thrilled for her - I'm gonna be an uncle!!!!!!

Awesome!  I can well imagine that feeling.
