I bought bear some pumps for school as they were incredibly inexpensive and came with the grocery order. I looked around for bear's gym bag. He has an Angry Birds backpack which holds his games kit. The school insist that the kit is kept at school during term time but when the holidays come round bear should have brought home a tshirt, jogging bottoms, shorts, trainers, probably pumps (he loses them and never tells me) and a hoodie.
He didn't bring them home.
Fortunately bear is 10 and not a fourteen year old lad playing energetic rugby in the mud. I should be able to just wash the kit and it will be fine. The back pack will probably need a good wipe out and air (it's not washable) but it's fixable - this time. I'm not looking forward to getting it.
Bear had a pal around to play. It was wonderful. There was peace, quiet and minecraft. I sat in the corner and relaxed.
