Having a working immune system is great. My cough is nearly gone and today I went on several buses, and to a place inhabited by large numbers of children, and I might do something similar tomorrow.
Louise and I took the children by bus to the Funky Fun House
; normally I do this by bike but that didn't seem sensible yet. It's two buses with one change on the edge of the city centre and a short walk at each end. The children were mostly cooperative and sensible on the journeys, and clearly enjoyed hurtling around at the play barn for hours until I declared time to come home before we got caught in the rain.
Cambridge buses are much less stressful to use if you are in no particular hurry to be anywhere; the long tailback on the way home due to cars queueing for the Grafton Centre was merely a bit dull, and at least we were warm and dry.
When we got home, Nico spent over an hour being entranced by CBeebies Stargazers
, which delighted me by having Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock co-presenting.
Louise goes home tomorrow morning; the children and I have a vague plan to do the long bus ride to Cheeky Monkeys
once she has departed.
