I’m pleased to report that day was much better than yesterday. DS and I had our YMCA class this morning and were surprised when DH decided to join us (I think, in part, because he doesn’t actually believe me when I tell him how DS behaves some weeks!). So, of course, DS loved having his daddy there and did indeed behave better then recently. Lu, the lady who runs the class, suggested another class that we might like to try, much more rough and tumble. My 1st thought was, “Oh, no, she doesn’t want him in her class anymore!” But then I remembered that she takes the other class as well, so it’s obviously not that! You know what? I think I’m going to book DS a trial class for next Friday (it’s the class before the one we do already). He and I don’t have anything to lose, do we? A few of us stayed for coffee after the class and all the little people got to play (rather nicely, mostly!). On the way home, DH remarked that he could handle a morning of childcare if that’s what it entailed!!!
DS had a lovely 1.5 hour nap after his lunch, with no exploding nappy or destruction – hooray! The weather had perked up considerably this afternoon so I took him out onto the Common around 3.30pm. DS really does love it there, he spends ages looking at all the buses and aircraft spotting!
And tonight? Steak, chips & Bearnaise sauce for supper followed by Strictly Come Dancing … ah, yes, the saga of the steak … basically, M&S said tough. That their policy is not to do anything about shopping left behind if it isn’t noted in their diary. Fat chance of that when there’s never a member of staff available! The Foodhall manager was a spotty-faced youth, to add insult to injury. I’m contemplating writing to the store manager and to Head Office re their policy but part of me thinks that I should just take it on the chin. The excellent customer service for which M&S used to be known for is obviously a thing of the past. Most disappointing. We will be eating steak this evening from the Tesco Finest range!
