I have a few scattered days off during the last few weeks of 2010. I had a little holiday to use up. I tried to use it smartly.
My mum and dad came up for a short visit just before Xmas and stayed until the Monday. We decided to spend a few hours of the extra day at Tropical World.
We've been before, but it remains a good (and warm: as much as +28°C, a change from the -5°C outside temperature) place to spend a little family time. And Olive hasn't been since just after she started walking, so over a year ago; she's much more aware and interested in her surroundings these days.
Afterwards we went across the road to the Roundhay Fox for lunch. The food is good there, but the service is usually lacking. On this occasion, it took me twenty actual minutes to place our order at the bar. Then, they forgot Olive's meal.
