Back to the Future Day or the one where I feel about 90 years old

Bee is always telling me that my funniest blog posts are the ones where I’m quoting things that she has said, because she is so hilarious. She also often berates me for writing so much about Belle and how cute/brave/adorable she is. I think it gets on her nerves when I go on and on about all the mini breaks Belle and I have been on, whilst Bee is living in London as a poor student, having to wear her pyjamas on days when her one pair of good trousers are in the wash.

Today then I am killing two birds with one stone and writing a post that talks exclusively about Bee and highlights how funny she is. She can’t fail to be impressed.

So, today, as I’m sure you’ll know if you have opened a newspaper/switched on the TV/opened your eyes, is Back to the Future Day. 21st October 2015 is the day they travel forward to, where everyone is getting around on hoverboards and watching on, casually, as their shoes automatically tie themselves. 

Thankfully, in my opinion, we still walk around like normal people. I can’t even rollerskate, and my attempts at skiing were frankly ridiculous. I’d be an absolute liability on a hoverboard.

Anyway, to celebrate Back to the Future Day and to reinforce my position as ‘the old one’ in our partnership, Bee welcomed me to the day with a friendly text:

Back to the Future Day

You see? Isn’t she funny?

It’s always good to know your children are thinking of you.

    It’s one of those things you don’t want to consider too much, because the more you think about it, the more you realise you really did think it was set a very long way into the future, and….errr….that was yesterday. Then I start thinking about all the other movies set in the future and remember Buck Rogers and it’s all okay.
