Right, as of this morning’s school run, I have officially had enough. I have a problem: I’m really sick of walking anywhere in the otherwise beautiful town of Lewes and having to dodge dog shit. Please don’t get me wrong, I love, love, love dogs, and we would dearly love to have one one day, but I […]
A couple of weekends back some girlfriends and I took our kids to Canfields, a Feather Down Farm in Horsham, West Sussex, for a weekend of ‘glamping’ (I dread this word, as I mentioned in my post 18 months or so ago about Mount Harry near Lewes, so as then I would rather here describe it as […]

Basically, KidStart is an online portal that you sign up for […]
