A Grand Day Out



I had never heard the phrase "day out" until the Wallace & Gromit movie, A Grand Day Out. Well, today my daughter and I are going to have one. I don't know how long it has been since we went "clothes shopping" together, but we're going today!

  1. I would recommend taking along a good Stilton or Wensleydale on your day out. ;)
    Have a lovely day with your daughter.

  3. Oh yes, we have a 'day out' here in England and visit a stately home, or go for a walk at the coast, go shopping etc. What would call it in the USA? Have a lovely day anyway.

  4. I'm partial to the phrase, "retail therapy"! :)

  5. Nan: I saw that you visited me in RI at 'Ledge and Gardens' so I came over to see you! The day out sounds like fun although I do remember shopping with my daughter was more trying than fun as we have very different taste but we do 'do lunch' together very well! Love the corn recipe and I will have to try that as the new batch is just about ready! What state are you gardening in?

  6. My daughters and I always had a day out right before school started. It involved the mall of course, but the best part was lunch. When they were teenagers the lunches were a little more expensive in nicer places than a fast food restaurant. They enjoyed the time with their mom as I did with them. To this day, I have an urge to gather them together and "do lunch" at the end of summer.

  7. Thanks to each of you for the wonderful comments. We were going to eat at a new Indian restaurant but we were too early for dinner, so we're planning to go down another time and bring Tom. :<) I guess over here we just say, "we're going shopping, or we're going to the ocean, or we're going on a garden tour" but I greatly, greatly prefer a "day out" and it is now part of my vocabulary. :<) Madre Karin, how we laughed at the cheese.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations.
Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
