I've felt … Continue reading How a thoughtless act can ruin a trip out
Firstly I yet again have to start with an apology for the lack of posts.

I haven't managed to write a blog post for a bit now and thought I better give you an explanation.

Yesterday, wanting to make the most of the nice weather, we decided to go out again as a family.

Firstly I wanted to say that I was totally blown away by your response to my post on "the unspeakable problem".
