The big highlight of the now is that we’ve got a teenager all of a sudden. Felix has turned 13. Lovely morning this morning of cards and prezzies. Xbox is the big un – clubbed together prezzy from several of us. He’s having x2 sleep overs and we went out on Saturday for eats. A place called The Spice Quarter on Millennium Square in Leeds. Fantastic place – an all you can eat buffet that has Indian, Chinese, Thai and Italian cuisine on offer. Prior to that, we spent an enjoyable couple of hours in The Leeds City Museum (photos) – a superb free thing in the heart of Leeds. The natural history floor had some great things to see – defiantly worth a look!
Yesterday was also cool – we went to the Countryside Live show on the Great Yorkshire Showground.
Wasn’t quite sure what to expect – but discovered it was a less farmery and slightly smaller version of The Great Yorkshire Show. The highlight for me was a display of a sheepdog hearding first ducks, the geese. Only one of them got away. I spotted a flaw in this method of gaggle management. Things with wings generally have an omnidirectional choice – including up, over the dogs humble two dimentional options. Diggers and sheep, chickens and eggloos (of which Eirene now wants one of) and chat with some folks from a company called Oscar – suppliers of (what looks to be) high quality dog food.
It was one of those weekends that (for me at least – who’s not on half term) seemed to fly by far too quickly.
