We could, of course, take the simple option of going to see Kung Fu Panda at a reasonable, child friendly hour, just like Cheeky Girl Skinny Au Pair who is taking Ian and Caitlin to see it tomorrow afternoon. But "simple" is not a term that's applied to this household....plus David thought it would be more of a treat if Mac was out and about during the hours he's normally tucked up and dreaming of being Buzz Lightyear.
It's funny how the unusual is such a treat. When I was seven years old I used to wish I could stay up until the same time as Bea....that yearned for 9pm bedtime was such a disappointment when I finally obtained it. Now of course I can go to bed whenever I want to but I really really want to be in bed while it's still light. Funny how things change.
Anyway. Matt and Lydia are joining us for this extravaganza, as is Charlie who is so pleased that she's able to see the high kicking panda, she's offered to pay for the pick n mix and popcorn.
