Although school is over (and thus the source of many of my odd experiences has run dry) there's no need to worry- as long as my mother is around, I will have plenty of fodder for my blog. Whether she's dancing in the middle of the road or simply getting dressed, rest assured that much eye-rolling and chocolate will be necessary to heal my humiliation. (Love you, Mum!)
What did she do this time? She decided that we needed to go on a quest.
Were there dragons?
Cute! But NO.
Damsels in distress, however? Of course!
(Yours truly was along for the ride. Do you even need to ask?)
Really, though, the most important question- were there knights in shining armour? (Possibly cuter...) NO. Not even. Just old bronze statues of prime minsters... and let's just say that none of them were stunners even when they weren't made of metal.
Okay, so there was a little bit of danger- that of being hit by a particularly violent raindrop as we skipped along, attempting to decipher the clues we'd been given. It was like a scavenger hunt, with a combo of prime ministers (we got to admire those gorgeous statues further) and directions- really, does anyone know which prime minster believed in human rights or which direction lies north? Does anyone care?
Well, be that as it may, we eventually got to the end of it... then promptly went to eat dinner, despite having eaten innumerable Larabars while walking. (Is there a correlation there? I have no idea.) I'm just glad I managed not to get lost...although this was probably just becasue we were walking so slowly. What kinds of weird activities do you do with your family?
