Friday was a very exciting day for us - we went on a day trip to Wembley. The best football stadium in the whole wide world apparently (according to our tour guide!) And it was pretty amazing. It has to be said though, that it would have been even more amazing had there been somewhere for us all to eat our packed lunches. Not allowed to eat on the coach, or inside the stadium, so we had to make do with standing up in the sub-zero temperatures, in the howling wind and nibble at our frozen sarnies. Not a great start to a tour for 6o small children (and one small monkee). And another thing, why, when you pride yourself on there being thousands of toilets, Mr Wembley, did you only supply us with 2?
I'm not too good with heights, but Vera was in her element wanting to swing from the rafters. Only there weren't any rafters, another thing which Wembley prides itself on. The roof is held up by the arch.
Poor old Vera, not only couldn't she swing from on high, she wasn't even allowed to play a game of football on the grass.
Ah, but she did get to sit with the FA Cup. The most prestigious cup in the UK, the one every British Club wants to hold up high. She's thinking of putting together a team with 007 as Captain. Any other Monkee Volunteers want to join in? And how about a fitting name?
(Just to dig a little bit here - any Arsenal fans out there? We're Manchester United fans here. Bad luck people. We were just so much better on the day!)
