This Week I...... Explored a Giant Peach!

Yes, you did read that right. My mum, nan, Cameron and I went away for another couple of days, this time to Oxford. It was such a hot Sunday when we arrived that all I felt like doing was lying down in the cool hotel room. We went for a meal at lunchtime and then went exploring the local village.

In the evening we had a picnic in the park. The next day we drove into a nearby town, Aylesbury, and went to the Roald Dahl Children's Gallery. I said it was for Cameron but to be honest it looked amazing and I wanted to go myself!

The gallery isn't very big, although it does cover a couple of floors. It fits quite a lot in, however, and I think it would be great for children aged 3 and up.

Although Cameron did really enjoy it, he wasn't fully aware of what everything was, and would have enjoyed it more if he knew some of the characters.

I had a great time reliving some of the tales from my own childhood, and acting like a big kid. I even faced my fear of enclosed spaces when I went through the fantastic Mr Fox's tunnel at Cameron's insistance!

In the tunnel!

If you happen to be in the area (unlikely, I know), I would definitely suggest a visit. Tickets are reasonable at £6 an adult, £4 for concessions and children under 3 going free.
