Heather was excited, very excited, she was going to the cinema for the first time ever and being taken out for lunch. We managed to locate a Pizza Hut so that was great, the kids not only used their knives and forks but neglected to race around the restaurant like loons! I was amazed as they sat 'butter wouldn't melt' personified. After a tour around the car park we were off to the cinema, managed to pick up the pre-booked tickets successfully and sorted out the ice-cream orders, this was the only downer - it took loads of time to get them but it was worth the wait!
WALL.E was enchanting, my nearly 4 year old loved it and even my 2 year old sat still until about the last few minutes when the ants in his pants got the better for him. As for Lucy she made WALL.E type noises at the screen for about fifteen minutes and spent 20 minutes asleep and for the rest of the time she was attached via the mammary gland! Good job it was dark.
Having, honestly been dreading the visit to some extent lest I spend the time chasing various children or shushing them it was a revelation that they behaved very well. Maybe we'll go again... in six months time!
