We may not be able to have days out at the moment, but there's nothing to stop us revisiting days out we've had in the past!

This is another exercise from Jenny Alexander's highly recommended book, Free-Range Writing.
Memoir: Didn't we have a lovely time?
Didn't we have a lovely time, the day we went to... Where? And who went? Think of a few great days out you've had, any time in the past.
Then consider the sentence substituting 'lovely' with horrible/boring/exciting, and think of some examples for each of those.
Choose one and tell the story. Exaggerate the mood of the day; if it was boring, make it sound like the most boring day ever, if exciting, the most exciting, and so on.
