|Mr Bloom and a star struck Joseph|
I told Joseph a few days before that we were going to see Mr Bloom on Saturday. Joseph gave me that 2 year old going on 12 "yeah right mum" look. On Saturday morning we got up early and started our journey on the tram to Media City. Joseph loves the tram, and even if Mr Bloom didn't materialise, he would have been quite happy.
We arrived and were taken to a room with lots of comfy cushions, a stage with cut outs of the veggies, and some extremely excited tiddlers (Mr Bloom's term for children)
Joseph's suspicion started to wane a little, maybe mummy wasn't lying afterall. At 11am on the dot, out Mr Bloom came. Joseph's face was a picture, his little eyes wide, his mouth open. Mr Bloom sung some songs, and told us how plants grow from seed. He got everyone involved. I was really impressed to see Joseph join in with all the other tiddlers, and do all the actions.
At the end he signed autographs and spoke to the children individually. Mr Bloom is just as lovely in real life as on screen, and it was a very enjoyable morning! I managed to refrain from patting his bottom or having a kiss, but a granny in the queue just in front of us jumped on his knee for a big snog! Mr Bloom is the new stay at home mum's bit of crumpet! He's lovely! And certainly a bit more fanciable than Postman Pat!
