So, I had the Primula, I had the crackers, Grandpa and I had Lara (6) and Holly (3) for the afternoon, we had the beautiful Gnoll Estate Park near Neath in Wales to visit - all should have gone smoothly. Except that you can't always get children of 3 and 6 to oblige - although they have times when they are up for trying anything (they ate crocodile the other day) when we set out the picnic, they were both having one of those days and refused to tuck in.
Lara decided she would much rather play on the climbing frame
While Holly at least accepted a taste
But still refused to eat any
However she was happy to feed Grandpa - who was very happy to be fed
So Mark and I tucked in to the tasty cheeses and crackers, to give us energy to see us through the rest of the afternoon.
