Yesterday - the final Sunday of the winter holidays - we had a lovely walk planned for the Frogner Park in Oslo. But by the time we got there, the parking lot was full, the play area was overrun, and the sun had disappeared behind dark and ominous clouds.
Things were not going according to the plan.
So what do you do with four cranky boys who didn't want to go for a walk in the first place, and two sets of parents getting steadily more frustrated listening to the whining?
You get them READY:
There were no losers yesterday. I made sure of it, eating lots of chocolate and not exercising.
