Ten minutes into the flower show the kids had had enough.
You could tell they had the attitude we’ve seen one and therefore seen them all.
No amount of enthusiasm from mum made the slightest impact on them. They wanted to get to the carnival rides and a sea of flowers was no one’s idea of fun.
It wasn’t unexpected they’d behave in this way. Dad had said as much to mum as they pulled up but mum was determined the flower show was to be enjoyed by one and all.
Needless to say the constant whinging changed all that.
