I had better start saving up

I have offered to take Claire out for ice cream on election day, along with any friends of hers who vote. She was going to vote anyway but some of her friends might not have. They are so funny, her friends; big as adults, doing mostly grown-up things, but a kids reward is still appealing.

excellent - well done you for thinking of the idea especially if it gets them into the voting mood )
and it shows you are a well regarded mum if they will still contemplate doing that at 17 and 18 :)

I am thinking of actually going on the streets with campaigners for the first time in my life in the Europe referendum -but sadly may not get anyone to give me ice cream
could buy my own BEn and Jerry this weekend though as it is on half price at my local supermarket....LOL

Yes please. I would love to Skype again. How about mid-day my time? Like maybe 1 for me? Is that ok for you? If not, any time you choose is ok.

How is the dancing story going? I am still thinking about M Cotard and his flute....

That never changes. My eldest is now 25 and all Christmas traditions have to be maintained.

Actually, I still like a kiddy type treat. They must be good for us. xx

Oh yes. When I had been grown and married 10 years, Father-in-law met us for lunch one day. We finished with ice-cream cones and a beach walk. Somehow I dropped mine, and it landed in the sand. I actually thought I would cry! So silly. I felt all of about 7. But FIL went right back and bought me another one... So kind.

Nobody is grown up about ice cream.
