My Boy Won A Radio

A couple of weeks ago during the school holidays the boy and his mum went to the museum to meet up with a music school classmate and his mum. As it was the holidays the museum had an exercise for them to do - Queen's Quest. They had to find certain objects and write down certain letters on a form. When finished they would put their name to it in the hope of winning a prize, in this case a radio.

The boy came home and told me about the competition but added, "I won't win it. I never win anything." I said that, "You've got to be in it to win it." Lo and behold about a week later the museum rang and asked him to come and collect a radio that he had won. Talk about one excited child. I was rather hoping that it had an MP3 player as well.

So, on the weekend we made a special trip into the city to collect the radio. It's not all that expensive, the 2xAAA batteries that we inserted are probably worth more than the radio itself, but it works well and is quite a treasured item. And that's just the way it should be. As it was a cheap item, which will last for ages if looked after, the museum was able to provide a great many radios as prizes and that's a great way to get kids to appreciate their museum.

Now I'm sure that he'll be bugging me to go in any competition that he sees from now on.

If this is a precursor to the future, you had better build a bigger shed in the back yard! Well done, you!
