Hand’s up who loves the open-air exhibition at the Natural History Museum, of the blown-up images from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year? Me to! So I was pleased when an email from Brighton Museum arrived, asking if we’d like to come and see the photographs right there. Wildlife Photographer of the Year is co-owned […]
Usually when I write about pubs with playgrounds, they’re about the food as much as the kid-friendly aspect. But in the beautiful weather we’ve been having, sometimes it’s just as nice to know about one that’s a perfect pitstop for a quiet drink on the way back from the beach.
A few weeks ago my husband had to work on a Sunday. It was sort of sunny, but sort of cloudy and, by the time my sons and I reached Seaford beach, really really windy. I’ve given Seaford quite a bit of airtime lately, with is nice, child-friendly eating experiences at The Front Room and […]

I feel so lucky to be asked to try out classes and activities, but sadly many of them we have to turn down because […]
Praise be! We’ve just found our ideal beach scenario. I said in my post about the wonderful Front Room in Seaford that the beach front here can be a bit lack lustre given it’s immense size, brilliant promenade and cliff walk at one end.
Post updated 12/05/15: Congratulations to Lori Inglis Hall, Sally Domingo-Jones and Silvia Viramontes Langton for winning the three copies of ‘The Book of Colours’! Hello!
