Yay for the park, Boo at Morrisons Cafe!


Happy Mount Park Slide
Originally uploaded by chiggster
So we went out, my boys and me. We went to Happy Mount Park again (coz it's nice and big) and had a lovely time. Jack played himself into the ground again running up and down and going on the slide (without a doubt the BEST thing any park could have has far as Jack is concerned). He played football with one of the other kiddies and shared his snacks with a little girl (Karma. He usually manages to scrounge off other kids!) Tom slept happily in the shade of his pram for the most part, waking up only to have a small feed.

Once Jack had worn him self out we went to Morrisons to have lunch in the cafe. Mum and John took him there a couple of weeks ago and said the burger & chips kids meal was a good deal - like a McDonalds Happy Meal - and that he'd liked it, so I thought we'd give it a go.

I wont be bothering again!

For a start we wound up waiting half an hour for his burner and chips. I was actually on my way to the counter to complain and demand my £2.49 back since he'd not had his food and instead eaten half of my lunch (a cold sandwich from the self service) when someone turned up with it. the burger was cold, and the chips chewy. There was no sign of the drink, fruit bag or choccy bar listed on my bill. So I chased them up. It took 4 attempts to get them. By this time poor Jack is crying. He's past being hungry and is just tired out now, but can't sleep on an empty belly! So I encouraged him to eat as much of his burger and humanly possible (he gagged on the last couple of bites and spat them out), and he had 2 chips before practically begging me to take him home.

Since we've been back I realised we didn't even get the colouring/activity book thingumy you get as a "toy"...

So, Morrisons, your service is RUBBISH and I'm telling EVERYONE! Happy Mount Park, however, is great and we'll be spending a lot more time there. With a pic-nic in future though.
