Pudding Lane Playhouse

Saturday afternoon -- raining again -- so off to the local soft play arena with The Boy and his best mate in the back.

"Dad," says The Boy, "where is Wacky Warehouse?"

"Near the cinema," I reply.

Best Mate pipes up: "Are there many cinemas?"

The Boy strides up to the plate to answer this one: "Well, there's one in Ipswich, one in Australia, one in America, one in Norwich, and one in London. And one in Chinese."

"Oh," he continues after a while, "and I think ... there was one in the Great Fire of London."
