"It's a scorcher!" came the cry from our back garden earlier today as Charlotte's spidey senses detected a rise in the outside temperature to approximately 10 degrees.
The fact that her daughter knew the word "scorcher" was a big enough surprise for Vanessa. But what came next trumped this several times over.
"I want to get the paddling pool out!" was Charlotte's next line.
Experience tells us that, in such situations, it's best to simply let her get on with it.
I feel another cold coming on. And, for once, it's not mine.
