Winter returned to London yesterday morning, we woke up to a heavy covering of snow and very cold temperature, the snow settled for few hours but was gone by early after noon.
Last week Amir my 7 year old son was invited to a birthday party by a school friend, he was so looking forward to going, the party was held at a sports centre, they hired a room with a huge bouncy castle and lots of other toys, I took him there at 1:30pm and was told to collect him at 3:30, Amir insisted that he is collected a bit late so that he can enjoy the party until the end.
I went back to collect him and took Aida my daughter with me, we arrived a bit early so we sat by the swimming pool just to give Amir extra time to enjoy the party, just after 3:30 we went to the party room, it was full of kids and parents, the adults were friendly and welcomed us in, we stood there watching the kids, soooooo many of them, I couldn't see Amir so we went to the bouncy castle, knowing Amir I thought he would be there for sure, it was packed with kids, we sat on a bench waiting for Amir to appear from the crowd but he was no where to be seen!
I asked one of the adults, they started looking for him, then it hit me, the kids were a bit young, like 5 years and under! WE WERE AT THE WRONG PARTY!!
I rushed out after saying sorry, found a member of staff and asked her, she told me that kids get to play in this room for one hour before they are moved upstairs into another room for the party cake and food, we went over and there was Amir with his friend Nathan, everyone else was long gone, Amir got his wish by being the last kid to go home, he had a wonderful time.
