The word Haunting put me off when I first noticed this, however it is used in a non ghost manner, more or less. This week the kids are expected to look around and investigate the ancient world, both locally and abroad. The Celtic tribes, Romans and Egypt kept them going this morning. I spent a while watching them while discussing local history with a chap who came into the museum to see one particular aspect, when I found him in a dark corner he had not got around to the bit he was looking for, he was so involved with his own past he discovered in front of him! That was really good! This museum adventure was good today. I only upset one fellow who was a wee bit full of himself, and got on well with all the folks I spoke to.
Now that's news!
One poor kid decided to be sick during the Kite Making session, so while the tutor instructed the others in flying kites I was sloshing about with a mop and bucket! I was like a janitor in school!
The mums in attendance were all used to such events, it goes with having kids.
I really enjoyed finding out how the kids liked the things on offer. One or two are brats but the majority today were interested, and many are returning for other activities. How unusual, a successful day, in spite of thunderstorms and pouring rain!
No other news in the UK today I see.......
