For Christmas Will had a 'voucher' for the aquapark at Boxend for himself and a friend. He chose to take J as he is going to a different secondary.
We were really lucky with the weather, breezy but dry and mostly sunny. They had a great hour and then we're more than happy with burger and chips for lunch afterwards.
When I dropped J back Will was invited to stay for tea, so after a chat with J's mum I headed home and he reappeared just after 8pm on a dog walk with J and his family. All in all a really pleasant day for both of us.
