Recently Al, Claire and Hugo joined us for lunch at Hoggies. It was lovely to see them as they have been a little busy with their little man. Catching up has not been as easy at it used to be. Hugo and Ben were just delightful at lunch. Hugo had a snooze and a cuddle, while Ben played and ate. I can confidently say that eating out with Ben is now more pleasurable…………. especially since the discovery of ‘the toy bag’ and ‘ice cream’. Our lovely neighbor Di (an experienced mumof three) had told me it is a good idea to take a small bag of toys when dinning out. It has been a huge success and used on a number of occasions. And as for ICE CREAM ………. I am sure it was invented so parents could eat their dinner!!!!!
