Jack has been driving us crazy about the giant Ferris wheel that has been erected in Brighton recently. He keeps looking it up on the Internet and rattling off trivia about it. It’s terribly exciting to have a ferris wheel in tangible proximity when you’re five I suppose. We [not so secretly] just see it as an overpriced [SERIOUSLY OVERPRICED!!!!!!!!!!] tourist trap. He worn us down though. This weekend we finally relented and took the twirl on the groceries-for-a-week-priced spin known as the Brighton Eye.
Ho-hum. That’s all I can say. But Jack loved every minute of it. So, for the boy who is very good, it was worth it. He was just beaming. And skipping for the rest of the day. And for what it’s worth, Sprinkles was pretty enthused too. Jack’s enthusiasm was contagious. And the view was lovely. But for the trade-off of left overs and canned/jarred dinners this week, I think I would have enjoyed some punnets of produce more.
