We are into Roald Dahl at the moment. Boy has books, DVD's and CD's and is absolutely loving them so we decided upon a holiday outing to the Roald Dahl Museum in Great Missenden. Depsite it being aimed at children older than my motley crew they really enjoyed it, and it was great to discover some of the inspirations behind his books and characters.
For lunch we had prepared a Roald Dahl picinic. Up till late the night before with paper, pens and laminator we had great fun theming our food. A giant cucumber became a snozzcumber with Sophie hiding scared inside(BFG), a bottle of lemonade was Frobscottle (BFG), Bird Pie (the Twits), Peaches (James and the Giant Peach) and sweets from Willy Wonka's famous Chocolate Factory. But the highlight had to be the eyeball bought from the museum shop and placed in everyone's drinks, just as Mrs Twit placed her glass eye in Mr Twits beer. In true British style we sat under a large tree whilst rain hurtled down and our lips and limbs turned blue, but we were determined to enjoy the picnic.
