On the last day of term I booked a surprise for Asa, Jasper and Barry to mark the end of Asa's first year at school. Newark Park, our very local National Trust property had The Pantaloons production of A Midsummer Nights Dream. We picnicked, drank raspberry lemonade and all enjoyed the show.
I was amazed at how the boys followed the story so well and did not need me to keep explaining what was happening, Jasper was belly laughing and I will never forget Asa's not entirely appropriate comment to one of the actors at the interval. Thank heavens for Winstones ice cream to keep them out of any more mischief!
