For the last 3 years, we’ve driven past Stonehenge and i’ve promised Fran we’ll go soon. So, since i knew our whole Friday was going to be taken up with journeying, given it took me till 12.30 to find my phone and leave Exeter, i thoguht we might as well make something of the day and actually go.
Anyway i was just so glad we did. Both the big girls listened intently to their audio guide as we walked around and could tell me lots about it afterwards. Ammi was awed by the size of it all and listen in with me, Maddy told every passing, mouth-mask-wearing Japanese tourist that passed that mummy had read her a story with Stonehenge in it and that King Arthur was in the story and King Arthur was going to be her special king, Fran was very inspired by the myths that interlaced the commentary. I have to say, it felt like the proverbial rosy-home-school moment.
All of them charmed the English Heritage Guide too and he was very lovely to them about being HE’d. We signed up for an English Heritage membership because i thought that it would be useful for all our holidays over the next year. Must make sure i use it well.
I’m no Mr Portico…
Windswept but impressed.
