Happy Hall House. Two football games being played simultaneously. Stoke City (2-0) in Small's bedroom and Leicester City (3-1) in the Living Room. Lots of cheers (well five in total) and happy people.
When I got up this morning, I found the two old men (boys) watching The Great British Bake Off. Then they watched Would I Lie To You and when Huffle got up, we all watched The Extra Slice. What happened to cartoons and kids stuff?
It was a very windy start to the day and we decided to go back to the Garden Centre to take advantage of the 70% sale plus I needed to blow away the cobwebs as I was feeling a bit yucky (head cold I think).
At the garden centre we spent over a $100 but the full price should have been around $600 so we were very pleased with our purchases. We bought Heucheras, Grasses, Viburnum, Hypericum (which we call Uncle Johns Wart after Uncle Dermot) and I spent my birthday money from Aunt Pear and bought some birds for the garden. THANK YOU Aunt Pear. We JUST managed to get them all in the car and took them home before going back out for dinner.
After dinner we went to find some Football Boots for fast growing big footed Small who now has size 11 US (which is size 10 UK). We did, however, find him a new Winter coat as he is growing taller and taller by the day. We didn't find any Boots in our first shop but I found some trainers for me in the sale. We then went to Value Village to look for material to make Smallest into a Ghost for Halloween. Instead he chose a costume of The Scream mask and a hooded cloak. Small found a pair of Football Boots and bought an old Gandalf style mask to go with his tee-shirt.
We then spent the rest of the afternoon going in various shops including Dollarama trying on masks and looking for this and that until we finally came home. We watched the rest of Batman vs Superman.

We had several blog titles today beyond the one we chose (by voting and doing rock, paper, scissors). One was Smelly Alan Fartridge's blueberry spill :- we were in a supermarket and we spotted one of the scouts leaders, who we call Smelly Alan Fartridge, who spilt his blueberries at the checkout. We found this funny! Another one was when we were watching Batman vs Superman, which we didn't think was that good actually, and I heard someone say "Arnold Stoner paid for the funeral" when in fact they said "an anonymous donor paid........". Maybe I need to get my ears looked at.
*dinner was Fish and Chips in our usual place. Bearing in mind this is a kind of Truck Stop Diner, the waitress brought us a napkin and a fork each. We all looked confused and wondered where our knives were and when she bought our dinners, Huffle said "can we have some knives please". She said IM SORRY WE RAN OUT, THEY ARE STILL IN THE DISHWASHER, THATS WHY I BROUGHT YOU A FORK! Brought us a fork, as opposed to what? She then came back with a tiny plastic knife each which we laughed at but it did in fact cut perfectly well.
