Suprise




Week 19's prompt was suprise simple as that, when the children were little we never told them when we were going to stay with my Mum we would say we were going shoppping they never did realise even though my mum lives 150 miles away. We knew when they were growing up when they recognised Lincoln Cathedral and we couldn't lie to them anymore, once we even told them we were going out for chips we were only in Cleethorpes not Bedford. They loved going there then and they still do now.
