QotD: At the Playground

Swings, see-saw, merry-go-round, slides… something else? What was your favorite activity at the playground when you were a kid?

I hated the playground. Being bullied does that. But I think the best bit of equipment was the Witches Hat. I used to sit on the top of that and freak out the teachers. They never noticed the pinches, the kicks, the unkind words, the blood – but they noticed when THEY might get in trouble.

Funny that..

I’ve Got a Tardis!

I have a Tardis.

Not like this one, with Doctor Who pretending he is Christopher Eccleston, or anything like that.

But I have something which carries more stuff than you would believe possible.

I give you

My Granny Wagon. (drum roll)

I don't drive.  Buses are expensive and you still have to carry the damn stuff.  I used to have the other sort, that you drag behind you, till I realised you are still carrying the weight, just dragging it behind you.

So I found this.

This is my second one – the wheels fell off the last one, which was cheap and nasty.  This cost more but it feels stronger.

And in case you do not believe it is a Tardis, here is what I bought from my shopping trip and photo session on Saturday.

Haul 3Haul 2Haul 1

That is 20 cans of beer, 6 chicken legs, burgers and bacon from the butcher, two lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, various spices, a squash, ketchup, cheese, garlic, potatoes, 7 grapefruit (for Husband's juice every morning), and three loaves of delicious bread.  And probably stuff I can't see and I have forgotten about.

And people (sorry, my children) laugh at me.  My neighbour, who I was talking to one evening as he was coming back from the local shops with like 6 bags handing off his arms, told me if he got one of those he would consider he had given up.

It just makes so much sense to me.

Now, if only I could get a Tardis for my spice storageā€¦
