If you read my blog last week you will know about the OHs excitement at discovering that there was a Trunki in the universe that resembled the Lotus F1 race car (well, as much as a Trunki can!). Personally I wasn’t quite sure we needed one just yet and Little Z couldn’t have cared less. He’d never heard of a Trunki and was much more interested in removing all his clothes and blowing bubbles outside.
After much “Shall we? Shall We? Shall we?” (from the OH), we decided that it would be fun for Little Z and the OH attempted to reserve it. He even paid Argos a visit and that’s when we (or rather, he) got the bad news. They are not available to buy till the end of June. He was gutted. I was sad for him. Little Z was perplexed at Trunki-gate. We had a mini-dilemma on our hands. We go away on on holiday on Tuesday and it meant either going without or choosing one of the other models. I wasn’t actually too fussed either way but it was evident it had taken a strong hold on the OH.
He eventually smiled again when he picked Bernard the Bee. A very bright, very smiley, yellow number.
Bernard arrived home this week and Little Z has taken an instant shine to him. He carried and pushed him around at first not realising he could ride it. The OH seems happy too albeit occasionally looks a bit wistful. I think maybe the Lotus will join us one day. Just not on this holiday.
