Aha, but how to entertain the munchkin whilst I decrumpled the Gillard family? So, I took Xander over to the dvd cupboard:
'How about Jurassic Park Xan? Look big dinosaurs'
'Nope' replied his highness 'I seen it'.
'OK, what about Charlie & the Chocolate factory?'
'Nope, seen it!'
'OK, which then?'
'This one' he's pointing to Fight Club...
'Er, maybe not.'
'OK, this one'
'Yes, I like that one' (note, child has never heard of a Flump, never mind seen the dvd).
Now, any self respecting child of the Seventies can not deny their child the right to a good old Flump episode. I loved the Flumps and used to sit every lunchtime with my Heinz tomato soup (with cut up bits of bread in) and watch it:
LOL, love that theme tune, an all time classic!
And low and behold, what episode does he pick? Only my favourite ever:
The Cloud! That was the one I always remember and often comment that I feel like Perkin with a great big cloud following him round all day!
Tomorrow? I'm between Trumpton, Chorlton & the Wheelies and Jamie & the Magic Torch.
OK, off to grow up now!
