Long hours = tired kids

after "bring your kids to work day"

Last Friday was ‘bring your kids to work day’. H & F suffered that, the “store”, and a quick scoot into REI for supplies for the weekend on the way home.

Priceless moment while checking them in at reception:

Dad, pointing to illuminated Internet Explorer ‘e’ sign above the entrance: “do you know what that is?”

H: “No”

Dad: “What to do you use when you go to the cbeebies site?”

H: “Firefox”

Much laughter from people various gathered in reception :-)
