Jake Williams, 5, told, “It became pretty wearing, early doors. On the first day of summer mum came in all bouncey and tantalisingly said, ‘who wants to go on an adventure?’

“Nauseating children’s presenter voice aside, it seemed pretty intriguing. I mean, who doesn’t like an adventure?

“Oh, but sure, I’ll just stand and wait while that arsehole Noah smiles at me like a psychopath as he hogs the slide, like he does in the schoolyard.

“And mum keeps asking me if I’m sharing!

“Erm, have a word with the future CEO of an energy company that will be responsible for killing all the remaining seals.

“Yeah, dad I know it’s a big stick. Just like all the other big sticks. Jesus.

Jake’s mum commented, “Thank goodness for the National Trust. I mean it’s just perfect for the kids. Jake absolutely loves the play areas – he even sees school friends which is an added bonus.

“I think he prefers it in the rain. He just loves jumping up and down in muddy puddles?

Jake responded, “Do you see what I’m fucking dealing with?”
