It has to be said, first off, that I wasn't impressed in the slightest - in fact, I found it a rather distressing experience.
Rye was so very keen to go on this, and once on, he seemed really disappointed. I think he thought the animals would rock or something. He did want to go on the much large Victoria paraol roundabout - is that what they are called? Can't think at the moment. But that would have been £5 for the both us, and as I'd just spent £14.95 on food - not to mention £30.90 to get in, plus train travel.. I wasn't that keen to be forking out even more! LOL I came over all Yorkshire.
We did manage to navigate the train/tube gates without him getting crushed this time - although the damn things closed on me a few times - so in the end I insisted the guards let us through the disable gates - I wasn't overly impressed to be jovially told, "that happens sometimes." Well it bloody well shouldn't! The damn things hurt. I was rather impressed Rye was so good on the escalators too, after the way I grabbed and threw him clear when he fell on one of the escalators at the weekend. Mind, I did try to keep it light, and we would hold hands count 123 and get on the escalator and then near the bottom, I would say..."ready...... JUMP" and he loved that.
And then today - Rachael (GP Mama), her sister, Tansy and the dog visited briefly, so we went down to the harbour for a walk and an icecream, before waving them off to go to Canterbury. Rye was very taken with the dog, I can see myself at some point seriously considering a dog for him, hmm, have to see as it is a big committment.
Rather hoping too, that next time we pop back up to London (do the museums, as I didn't do them on Monday as planned), we get to meet up again. I'd love to take Rye to the Natural History Museum and Science Museum - I think he'd love it.. and well, I adore the Natural History Museum - although its been many, many a year since I last visited.
LOL I'm going to need another week A/L to recover from all this activity! Tomorrow it's toddler group in the morning, and then in the afternoon, weather permitting, Brockhill Park with the HE group and Friday I have an optician appointment about having contacts lenses fitted... and probably Saturday I will take Rye to Canterbury for the day.. I've not done the Catherdral yet, so we may have to have a nosey in there.. and I'd love to go to the teddy bear museum too.
Sunday I'm doing sweet FA, that I can promise you! lol.
