Went to see UP with Chris and the grandkids while Bev and Juli hit the town for a bit of shopping. As we twisted up to the top floor of the car park I caught sight at every level of the area of Sunderland I grew up in...the river and docks in particular. As we got out of the car there was a poster encouraging getting to know and discover the very same places, and there it was...the first school I attended. It was quite nostalgic.
Once inside the cinema, Anna-Belle sat on my knee for a while and promptly stretched her legs to almost rest on the head of the man sitting in front of us. It happened a few times.
The film was really very good and had me almost in tears a number of times. Cartoons are very good these days, aren't they?
Later, Bev and I took a drive along the seafront past the windmill and lighthouse before reaching Marsden where we parked up and took a little walk. The waves crashed violently and the gulls squealed as we read the various plaques on the commemorative benches that lined the cliff edge. I was horrified to read that most of the deaths were of men much younger than me. So much for healthy sea air.
Once back home, we were responsible for feeding, bathing, reading to and putting to bed all the kids while Chris and Juli went for a meal. We started about 4:30 and finished about 8:30pm. Hard work...particularly for Bev who did the lions share.
Zonked! Not able to concentrate on French.
