1. My "day out" with the kids included me getting us lost three times, taking half an hour to find a parking space a long way away so we got to one activity when it was nearly finished, and having a very expensive lunch that wasn't particulary good. And my kids were excited and happy the whole day and didn't care about minor stuff like that.
2. Watching a glassmaker create a multicoloured glass paperweight. Fire, water and twirling.
3. Looking at fabric for new window blinds. The most beautiful texturally-interesting ones were too expensive, but I'm happy with what we chose.
